Abstract

The research aims to investigate one of the most popular, poetic and musical genres in Sardinia: the gosos. The task of the Introduction is to outline in the first part the structural, metric and melodic characteristics, in the second its European origins. Chapter 1 opens with the historical and cultural context that welcomed these compositions in Sardinia in the second half of the sixteenth century. Therefore, I present the first known attestations of the Iberian gozos and goigs, followed by the first compositions in Sardinian. The latter coexist in the Island with the Italian lauda and the Santa Croce brotherhood. The chapter ends with an overview of the manuscript and printed sources, of the oldest written attestations of the compositions’ performance, and a collection of melodies. Chapter 2 is dedicated to the oldest confraternal manuscripts. Among these, the Borutta Code stands out as the oldest of the Sassarese-Logudorese family. I provide a transcription and metric description of the two conserved gosos in the code. The recent rediscovery of some documents belonging to the archive of Santa Croce brotherhood of Sassari also allowed me to better outline the historical context of circulation of the Sassari Office, a lost antigraph of the Borutta Code, and to deepen the history of the fraternity. Finally, Chapter 3 shows the database that I created, with percentage data, graphs and tables based on the over 300 texts collected in the Textual Appendix, belonging to the Dioceses of Sassari and Alghero-Bosa. My Final Considerations follow, with a brief discussion on the historical and melodic evolution of the gosos and goigs; through the Catalan compositions, the cult of St. Narcissus and a rich photographic appendix, I trace the path from monody to polyphony in Catalonia. The work ends with the Iconographic Appendix of the most important analyzed sources, Catalan and Sardinian, and the Textual Appendix.
