Course Summary

Delve into the history of song with Richard Stone as he considers the questions: What did Medieval music really sound like? How was it performed and recorded? Why did music become such an integral component of life?

Trace the path of sacred music from monophony to complex polyphony, consider the evolution of notation, the effect of the pilgrimage phenomenon on the growth of secular music and the significance of practitioners such as Hildegard of Bingen, Machaut, Dufay, Josquin, Perotin and Marenzio.
