Medieval Music. This course surveys European sacred and secular musical repertories from the advent of Gregorian Chant through motets and chansons of the late fourteenth century. It is organized around important sites of medieval musical activity—the monastery, the cathedral, the castle, the urban square, and the palace. Students who enroll in the course will learn about the cultural contexts of medieval music, gain knowledge of representative examples of medieval monophony and polyphony, and develop a basic understanding of medieval musical notation, music theory, and compositional techniques.

Course Requirements:

Students should expect regular listening and readings assignments, in-class listening quizzes and three-minute papers, midterm and final exams. Participation will include singing in the in-class schola cantorum.

Intended Audience:

The ability to read modern Western musical notation is required.
