I came across the texts in Notker thanks to Paul Hillier, who showed them to me in 1994. I was fascinated by the clarity with which Notker the Stammerer teaches ways to remember “extremely long melodies”, and the candid description that he offers of himself as a “toothless man of stammering speech” when he talks about his own accomplishments. Coming from someone who died in 912, Notker’s comment was unexpectedly modern: I had the feeling that we could have been friends. 

The piece was written for and is dedicated to the Theatre of Voices and Paul Hillier.
