Colton, Lisa (2008) The Articulation of Virginity in the Medieval Chanson de nonne. Journal of the Royal Musical Association, 133 (2). pp. 159-188. ISSN 02690403Metadata only available from this repository.
The chanson de nonne presents stereotypical images of young women whose bodies and voices are trapped within the confines of a nunnery. Close examination of the architectural metaphors used to describe virginity and chastity in the Middle Ages allows comparisons to be made between the structures – metaphorical, musical and textual – that held fictitious nuns within the frame of the clerical imagination at the centre of thirteenth-century motet production.
