Course Summary

The course will trace the development of Italian vocal music through the first half of the 17th Century. From the New Music of Caccini and the theatrical experiments of the Florentine Camerata, we will see how opera evolved from a private court entertainment to a successful commercial enterprise in the hands of composers such as Monteverdi and Cavalli. We will also explore regional styles of sacred music, madrigal and song.
