Amcanion cyffredinol

The period between the end of the fourteenth century and the middle of the sixteenth is one of the richest of Western musical history. This module will trace the contemporary changes in musical style, compositional procedure, and composers’ attitudes towards the setting of sacred and secular texts, alongside the growth of independent instrumental music during the period. We will take a broad view of selected repertories (such as the chanson), and examine the compositional output of specific composers as case studies. Perspectives from contemporary theoretical writings and the role of patronage will also be addressed. The music will be studied within its wider cultural and historical context.

Cynnwys cwrs

The module will address the following topics from a range of perspectives that will include musical analysis, the transmission of music, performance practice, patronage, and compositional context:

  • The music and careers of selected composers including Dufay, Binchois, Ockeghem, Isaac, Obrecht, and Josquin
  • Compositional procedure including perspectives from contemporary theory
  • Anonymous music and issues of attribution
