Term: WN 2018
Subject: Music History and Musicology (MUSICOL)
Department: Music School
Advisory Prerequisites:
Permission of instructor.
May not be repeated for credit.
Primary Instructor:

The course explores the genre of the motet in the late-16th century from a variety of perspectives that range from religious and social function (liturgical, devotional, ceremonial), to strictly musical (harmony, texture, rhetoric, text/music relationships, etc.). Although we will concentrate primarily on the motets by Palestrina, Victoria, and Lasso, our analyses will occasionally involve the works of other authors from that period, as well as other musical genres. In addition, the course will provide an opportunity to examine the merits and the shortcomings of current music-analytic approaches to Renaissance music. In turn, the increasing number of available recordings of this repertory will enable participants to engage in fruitful discussions of issues of musical performance. A course pack containing a representative sample of motet scores will be made available at the beginning of the term.

Intended Audience:

For doctoral students only. Graduate only. Renaissance Music (578) is not a pre-requisite for the course.
