This year, Jocelyn Hagen is composing an extended secular work, How to Survive Winter. This piece will be three to four movements long, around fifteen minutes, and will be performed by the Dallas Women’s Chorus and string quartet. The piece will also feature the Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci and the Women’s Chorus of Dallas. It will be performed during a special concert at the Dallas Symphony Center.
The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci
The notebooks were a form of creative record for Leonardo, who started recording his ideas in the mid-1480s. While working as a naval and military engineer for the Duke of Milan, he developed a unique way of using paper. His notebooks feature an unpredictable sequence of inventions and ideas, as if he were recording the workings of a scientist and designer.
These notebooks are mostly as Leonardo left them, with some missing pages. His notebooks were purchased from Milan stationers’ shops and folded into books or bound with cords. One of these notebooks, the Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci, was stolen in the mid-19th century by Count Guglielmo Libri. The notebooks are divided into three codices, which are held together by a cord or wooden toggle. The notebooks themselves are not in chronological order, and only one codice contains an indication of when the notebook was created.
In these notebooks, he wrote about subjects ranging from anatomy and biology to scientific theory and natural history. In his later life, he lived in the court of Francis I, where he was highly honored and isolated. Although he was isolated from Rome’s social life, he continued to fill his notebooks with scientific entries. In 1518, he was invited to attend the court of French king Francis I at Fontainebleau, where he was given the titles of first architect, first mechanic, and first painter. He died in Cloux, France on May 2, 1519, aged forty-six.
Leonardo lived in Florence between 1503 and 1506. During this period, he was employed as a military engineer for Cesare Borgia, and he spent a great deal of time working on his famous Mona Lisa. Leonardo’s accounts reveal that he was ahead of his time in terms of mechanics, physics, bridges, weapons, river diversions, and fortifications.
In July 1505, Leonardo completed a notebook titled Libro titolato di strasformatione, where he discussed problems with relating volume to shape and volume. This was his first experience of topology, which is the branch of mathematics that he later incorporated into his art. Its contents are quite fascinating, and it’s hard to imagine the artist working on a painting while still in his early life.
The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci are one of the most fascinating things to learn about the Renaissance master. The notebooks are full of diagrams, observations, and personal notes that give us a unique insight into his worldview. And, you can visit the notebooks at a museum and learn more about his life and creative process. So, what do you have to lose by getting a copy of The Notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci?
The notebooks of Leonardo da Vinci also contain an element of humor. While a notebook titled c.1508 looks like a scientific demonstration, it is actually entitled ‘Why do dogs sniff each other’s bottom?’ It seems that Leonardo’s scientific knowledge was tempered by the need to understand human nature and the origins of human behavior. However, he also writes about the sociology of dogs.

Composer’s extended secular work
How to survive winter with a composer’s extended secular work may be the perfect remedy for your gloomy mood. The song, “Mirie it is while sumer ilast,” dates from the first half of the thirteenth century and is the earliest secular English work. It was preserved by accident on a scrap of paper, kept with an unrelated book. The song’s single verse and delicate music capture the hardships of medieval life.
