Anne Robertson presented her paper, “The Man with the Pale Face, the Relic, and Guillaume Du Fay’s Missa Se la face ay pale,” at the Annual Meeting of the AMS in Nashville in October, 2008. This study was conceived as a companion-piece to her 2006 JAMS article on the Caput Masses and motet and continues her work on fifteenth- and sixteenth-century Christological music. Revisiting her research on the music of Reims Cathedral and its most famous poet/musician, Guillaume de Machaut, Anne published an article this past winter on the late medieval polyphonic and paraliturgical music of this renowned church. The study appeared in the proceedings of an international colloquium that was held in Reims in 2004 in anticipation of the 800th anniversary of the construction of the cathedral that will be celebrated in 2011. In May, Anne learned she has been elected the fortieth President of the AMS. Beginning her position as President-Elect at the Annual Meeting in Philadelphia in November, she will serve as President in 2011-12 and as Past-President in 2013. Anne hopes to see many of you at the meeting, which will mark the 75th anniversary of the AMS.
