Source Reading in Music History - Volume 3 : The Renaissance [1988]

£14.99

Product description

Revised Edition published in 1988 by W W Norton.

This is a serious academic study of the music of the Renaissance. First published in 1950 it was extensively revised in 1978,and then revised again in 1998. It covers its subject in great detail and is a must for anyone interested in music of that period. The text includes numerous examples of the music under discussion and there is a useful index.

The Renaissance era saw a significant ferment under the banners of humanism, discovery, and reform, deeply affecting music and the way it was understood.
Writers of the time explored its links with grammar and rhetoric, reported on the music of non-European peoples, and debated the role of music in religious and other spheres. The forty-five readings chosen for this volume by Gary Tomlinson cover a gamut that includes composers, theorists, poets, philosophers, courtiers, scholars, kings, and popes. Through the eyes of Bembo and Byrd, Du fay and Erasmus, Peacham and Palestrina, Charles IX and Gregory XIII, Calvin and Castiglione, Aaron, Tinctoris, Morley, and Zarlino, we see the many worlds of music in the Renaissance.

There is a small amount of rubbing wear on the cover and the spine is lightly faded, however the internal pages are in a good clean condition and the binding is sound.
