Murray Steib (Ph.D., University of Chicago, 1992). Professor, specializes in the music of the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, especially sacred music, and musical borrowing in the Renaissance. He has also taught at Indiana University in Bloomington and Roosevelt University in Chicago. He received an NEH Summer Fellowship in 1998, a Ball State New Faculty Development Grant and a Ball State International Faculty Development Grant in 2001, and the Newberry Library Lester J. Cappon Fellowship in Documentary Editing in 2003. He won the College of Fine Arts Creative Endeavor Award in 2009. He has published articles and reviews in the Journal of Musicology, Tijdschrift van de Koninklijke Vereniging voor Nederlandse Muziekgeschiedenis, Music Library Association NOTES, the Journal of Musicological Research, and Renaissance Quarterly, and has contributed to the revised New Grove Dictionary and The Encyclopedia of the Renaissance. He edited The Reader Guide to Music: History, Theory, Criticism, a reference guide to the monographic literature on music, co-edited the two-volume critical edition of Johannes Martini Masses, and edited the two-volume critical edition of the Sacred Music of Johannes Martini and Johannes Brebis. Dr. Steib has read papers at national and international music history conferences in the United States and Europe, including the International Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, the International Medieval and Renaissance Conference in Great Britain, the International Musicological Society, the South Central Renaissance Conference, the local and national meetings of the American Musicological Society, and a variety of specialty conferences on the motet. Current projects include an edition of the music of Firmin Caron and an article which explores the social, political, and religious milieu that produced a late fifteenth-century Ferrarese manuscript and argues that Johannes Martini, its best-represented composer, acted as its editor.
