Award or Honor Receipt
A specialist in early medieval music with two books in print, in her current work Professor Maloy examines the Old Hispanic chant of the Iberian Peninsula from many perspectives, considering notation, melodic analysis and the relationship between words and music. Her ACLS fellowship project explores how the Old Hispanic chant was integrated with other liturgical elements, how it relates to the traditions of biblical exegesis studied on the peninsula and how it is connected to other western chant traditions. This project will facilitate scholars gaining a more nuanced understanding of the medieval world, one that maps the dynamic interconnections among liturgy, the arts and intellectual life.
