Congratulations to James Grier, who was awarded his second Labarge Prize this year for his Ademarus Cabannensis, Monachus et Musicus (Brepols, 2018). The prize committee, chaired by Michael Kightly (University of Louisiana at Lafayette), was particularly impressed with the depth of the book’s research and the strength of its methodology. As one reviewer described it, “this book is an intensive paleographical study of the musical hand of Ademar de Chabannes, a monk of St. Martial de Limoges and a significant figure in medieval music. Perhaps the greatest strength of Grier’s book is the overall quality of the scholarship and its thoroughness … It is an exquisite example of rigorous paleographic research, articulated clearly and argued convincingly.” Our book prize honours the memory of the Society’s first president.
