‘Score of Baude Cordier’s chanson “Belle, bonne, sage,” from The Chantilly Manuscript, Musée Condé 564. The manuscript is one of the classic examples of ars subtilior, which requires red notes, or “coloration” to indicate changes in note lengths from their normally written values. This chanson, a dedicatory piece on the love of a lady and a lord written in the shape of a heart, opens the corpus. Note the heart of notes within the larger heart.’ Circa. 1350-1400

1550 Manuscript - "You are actually looking at a song: the four lines form a medieval staff, the words underneath it (Dutch) lyrics. Its most spectacular feature are the notes, which are made of food and drinks - forming actual music. This is a song for Shrove or Pancake Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, which marked the beginning of a period of fasting. The pages seem to encourage the reader to have one last evening of fun, one last copious meal, one last barrel of wine."

Music score with food instead of notes. "If music be the food of love, play on"
