Walter Odington; Walter of Evesham

Died c.1330, author of a treatise on the theory of music, flourished in England. He was a Benedictine, and was at Oxford in 1316, engaged in astronomical and mathematical work. His most valued contribution, however, preserved in manuscript copy at Cambridge, is "De Speculatione Musices," written at an earlier period, in which is assembled practically all the 13th-century knowledge of musical subjects.
