Music figured prominently in the mysticism of the English hermit Richard Rolle (d. 1349). It's not surprising, then, that a body of music is attached to one of the manuscripts of his Melos amoris. Although most of the composers are unknown, John Dunstaple, John Plummer and possibly Leonel Power are represented. Sine Nomine, in collaboration with Fordham University scholar Andrew Albin, explores the relationship between Rolle's text and the music which enriches it.
