Research Interests

  • Latin liturgical poetry, in particular sequences and tropes  
  • Music and ritual in St Vitus Cathedral in Prague 
  • The Jistebnice Kancionál and the Czech liturgy in the 15th century 
  • Transmission and transformations of the Latin liturgical repertory from the early to the late Middle Ages 

Within the project "Old Myths, New Facts", she will research the Latin liturgical repertory tradition in the broader Central European region in the 15th century, including the specific rhythmicised chant ("cantus fractus") and its relation to, or differences from, other European traditions, and will also follow the constitution of the Czech liturgical repertory as recorded in the so-called Jistebnice Kancionál and other contemporary sources.
