Example text

Martin, ‘Crowning of a King’. Fletcher, Drama, pp. 90–113. 14 A HISTORY OF MUSIC AT CHRIST CHURCH CATHEDRAL Musical sources associated with Christ Church A twelfth-century carved capital in the cathedral depicts (secular) musicians and dancers (Plate 2) and a mid-fourteenth-century account roll makes passing reference to visiting musicians, again secular and outside a religious context,15 but otherwise there is little direct evidence relating to music at Christ Church before the late fifteenth century.

If so, the prior and chapter may have felt it desirable to secure the longer-term existence and training of a choir of singing boys in order to assure the benefits which the music they represented must by then have been contributing in terms of both liturgical and civic prestige. David Wynchester, who had become prior relatively recently in 1489, may also have wanted to put his mark on the provision of music in the cathedral. In view of this extensive documentation relating to the establishment of boy singers and a master to train them, it is all the more to be regretted that neither music nor any specific references to repertoire have survived from Christ Church from the entire period between the early fifteenth and the early seventeenth centuries.

The close links between Christ Church and centres in England such as Winchester where polyphony was sung as early as the late tenth and early eleventh centuries have already been noted.
