The White Lily
Candens lillium, stella radiosa, mater gloriosa--A perusal of medieval Marian texts yields a long list of honorific names for Mary, the mother of Jesus. She is the white lily, the shining star, the glorious mother of all, the new Eve, and the direct line to Christ. She is at once a servant and the queen of heaven, in stature second only to God.

The medieval church designated Mary as the mediatrix, a figure with special powers to intercede with her son on behalf of humankind. The cult of the virgin led to a staggering outpouring of song as believers, feeling far removed from a distant God and unworthy to address him directly, turned to their Blessed Mother to arrange forgiveness and an eternity in heaven.

Songs and poems for Mary became so basic to medieval culture that they popped up everywhere: adopting the melodies of popular troubadour songs, inserted into preexisting liturgical music, and forming the basis of decidedly non-sacred love songs. In medieval Paris, clever young poet/composers even wrote bi-textual motets that praise Mary in one voice and recount a bawdy encounter with Marion in the other. A program of Marian music is a true cross-section of medieval music and a window into the medieval heart.
