Section 004 Music in Medieval Culture. (3 credits). Through reading and listening assignments, lecture and class discussion, "Music in Medieval Culture" will examine the connections between music and other disciplines and arts in the Middle Ages. The course will focus particular attention on five themes: (1) the role of music in late antique philosophy; (2) Gregorian chant and its place in medieval religious thought; (3) sacred vocal polyphony (part music) as musical counterpart to the Gothic cathedral and Scholastic philosophy; (4) textual interplay in Latin and French-texted polyphonic music; (5) fourteenth-century Italian song and the Black Death. Students are also encouraged to bring to the course their own special interests which can be accommodated in most cases. Grading will be based on performance on the (essay) midterm and final examinations, an oral presentation and a term paper. The ability to read music is not essential. (Borders) (Borders)
