The CODICES research group—Drs. Jeff Rydberg-Cox, Nathan Oyler (Chemistry), and Virginia Blanton—invite you to a special workshop on medieval chant and the Adair Chantbook. CODICES has been actively working on this late medieval manuscript, developing a book history, and conducting multispectral imaging. Special guest, Eugeen Liven d’Abelardo, will be in Kansas City to teach a master class and conduct Gregorian Chant. He has generously offered to discuss the Adair Chantbook, one of the treasures of LaBudde Special Collections here at UMKC.
