The goal of this course is to help students develop a critical and historical understanding of the musical life of 16th-century Europe, the so-called High Renaissance. To achieve this purpose we will not only take a close look at musical works, genres, styles, forms, composers, etc., but we will also study the political, religious, and social institutions that contributed to creating the flourishing musical culture of the "Renaissance".
Readings will be drawn from the textbook and other scholarly sources. The assignments will aim at developing music analytic skills and at exploring issues of performance practice.
Graduate students elect MUSICOL 578.
