dc.description.abstractTracing the transmission of plainchant depends on the identification melodic formulas. This thesis will address the concept of formula, as it relates to methods of pre-notational transmission, memorization, fixity, formal analysis, and digital encoding. Thus, it aims to present an overview of the major issues and theories relating to chant transmission in the early medieval period. Focus is given to analyses by Leo Treitler, Kenneth Levy, and Theodore Karp in order to illuminate shifts in scholarly understanding of "formula." This thesis touches on the tension between the New Historical and Traditional views of plainchant transmission. The second-mode tract Deus, deus meus is used a focal point for the discussion of formula. Finally, this thesis offers an examination of the XML language MEI for encoding scholarly analysis.en_US
