St Albans Psalter Research Progress

I may have made a small breakthrough in my mediæval research today concerning textual displacement, veiling and manifestation. It relates (literary and musical) polyphony to the mystery and the knowledge of the Eucharist, and ultimately to the atonement – and is Dostoevsky’s polyphonic fiction related? Perhaps polyphony both conceals and reveals. Work moves ahead.
