The Spring 2014 issue of Qualelibet includes abstracts for the Hildegard presentations at the upcoming 2014 Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, Michigan, and features an essay by our president, Professor Pozzi Escot of New England Conservatory of Music entitled Hildegard von Bingen’s Antiphon Sed diabolus (Riesenkodex No. 52, Dendermonde Ms. No. 54, as listed but not numbered, in old German neume notation. This essay was originally published in 1999 in her book The Poetics of Simple Mathematics in Music. (Publication Contact International, publisher.)
It is with profound sadness that we communicate the recent passing of Dr. Werner Lauter at his home in Rudesheim, Germany. Dr. Lauter was a most extraordinary student of Hildegard von Bingen who dedicated his life to research into her life and works, which he communicated through his lectures and writing.
He was a most ardent member of our Society and joined with us in celebrating the 900th anniversary of her birth in Germany. He participated constantly in the Society’s development and will be deeply missed.
Announcement of Dr. Lauter's passing in the Rheingau Echo. October 10, 2013.
