  • Title: Music and the Miraculous: Mary in the Mid-Thirteenth-Century Dominican Sequence Repertory [The early Dominicans felt a special closeness to the Virgin Mary. This was expressed in hymns like the "Salve regina," and in special liturgical sequences for Saturday devotions to Mary. The order, guided by Humbert of Romans, created a unified liturgy that drew upon Parisian models. These were adapted to Dominican needs, including by editing existing compositions, and new compositions were prepared after Humbert's time. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
