Jammers, Ewald (Karl Hubert Maria)


(b Cologne-Lindenthal, 1 Jan 1897; d 26 June 1981). German librarian and musicologist. He studied musicology (with Schiedermair), history, German philology and ethnology at Bonn University (1914–17, 1919–24), taking the doctorate in 1924 with a study of the Jena song manuscript; he passed the state philological examination in 1925. After working as a student assistant at the State Library of Saxony in Dresden (1925–7), and passing the professional librarianship examination at the Leipzig University Library (1927), he became assistant librarian until 1944, and then Bibliotheksrat at the Dresden State Library, having had charge of its department since 1931. After a period teaching in a Gymnasium at Bergheim (1946–50), he held a post as librarian at the Düsseldorf State and Civic Library (1951–2). From 1951 he was a Bibliotheksrat (from 1957 Oberbibliotheksrat) at Heidelberg University Library, where from 1953 he was in charge of the manuscript department. From 1956 he was also honorary professor in early music at Heidelberg University. He retired in 1962.

Jammers’s numerous wide-ranging works on early music history concentrated on Byzantine music, the chorale, Minnesang and medieval polyphony. His creative, independent and comprehensive assessments stemmed from a detailed knowledge of musicology, Germany philology and theology, combined with systematically integrated palaeographical, linguistic, rhythmic, melodic and harmonic analysis.
