• The Mass, the motet, the chanson. These three genres make up the lion’s share of the polyphonic works in the Alamire manuscripts, a body of fifty often opulently illuminated manuscripts of Flemish origin; these were compiled between 1490 and approximately 1530 as a result of the contacts of the Burgundian-Habsburg princes with foreign rulers and religious brotherhoods. They were named after their copyist, one Petrus van der Hove, alias Alamire — his pseudonym spelt out in note names that he often used as his signature on a stave. Seven of these manuscripts are to be found in Belgium: one in the Archief en Stadsbibliotheek of the city of Mechelen, the only one of the seven that is still kept in the city of its creation, and six in Brussels in the Bibliothèque royale de Belgique, including the splendid chansonnier or song-book compiled by Margaret of Austria of works by herself and others (Ms. 228). The remaining manuscripts are valued just as highly abroad as in Belgium and are preserved in eleven other European libraries, principally those of Jena, Munich, the Vatican and Vienna.
