Research interests

  • Hymnology 
  • Gregorian Chant
  • Musical culture of Central Europe in the 14th and 15th centuries

Jan Ciglbauer explores the musical culture of Central Europe in the 14th and 15th centuries with a focus on late medieval hymnology. He is especially interested in the musical life of late medieval institutions; questions of genre and the way that musical repertoire reflects social developments. He concentrates on adaptations of musical compositions under the changing circumstances of their use. One of his long-term interests is the liturgy in school and university environments. 

In the project “Old Myths, New Facts”, he studies manuscript sources of Central European music up to c. 1500 in order to keep track of and map the song repertoire of the 14th and 15th centuries. He also probes into the practice of late medieval music in different institutions.
