Primary Instructor:

This course will concentrate on the repertory and performance practices of instrumental ensembles in the period 1450-1600, particularly wind bands. We will also study the repertory for solo instruments, such as lute and keyboard. Readings and assignments will deal with topics such as improvisation, tuning, arrangements of vocal music, manuscript and printed sources of instrumental music. A number of instruments from the Stearns Collection (copies of original instruments) will be available to those students who wish to take a hands-on approach to the subject. It is hoped that in-class performances on these instruments will be a routine part of the course. There are no pre-requisites for this class apart from having completed the MUSICOL 139-240 core sequence.
