Music in the Middle Ages

Rob C. Wegman

Introduction to some important musical repertories from before 1400 A.D.: Gregorian chant; the troubadour culture; the intellectual culture of music theory and the earliest polyphonic music. Among the problems and issues: how to recover the medieval roots of oral traditions that are still practiced today; how ancient and medieval concepts of tuning, mode, notation, form, and language continued to shape the history of music long after the Middle Ages.
