Polifonie Journal

This post is also available in: it


«Polifonie. History and Theory of Choral Music» is the scholarly musicological journal of the Centro di Studi Guidoniani, published yearly by the “Guido d’Arezzo” Foundation. Founded in 2001 by Francesco Luisi following the millenary celebrations of Guido d’Arezzo’s birth, from 2019 it has a new editorial board of prominent international scholars to ensure the journal the highest quality and a leading role in its field.
«Polifonie» is devoted to the study of polyphonic and monodic vocal music, from the Middle Ages to the present day, both within and beyond the Western art tradition. The scope includes source-studies, palaeography, textual criticism, performance practice, music theory, music analysis, historical and archival studies, and interdisciplinary research in fields such as literature and art.
The journal promotes and shares the most recent research in these fields, to offer a critical forum to scholars, composers, choral conductors and singers and to encourage dialogue between research, composition, and performance practice.
It publishes articles in both Italian and English, assessed through a process of double-blind peer-review.
Distribution of the journal is annual and free of charge. Starting with the issue of 2019 – volume VII, new series (vol. XVI of the whole series) –, the journal will be published in two formats: paper – distributed on a complimentary basis to a number of national and international libraries, universities, research institutes, musicologists and choir directors – and online in open access. Previous issues are available in .pdf format at the link: https://www.polifonico.org/polifonie.
