MUS525: Topics in Music from 1400 to 1600: Renaissance Music

Course Info

Focus on select Renaissance music texts, both manuscript and print, for evidence of how authors borrowed structures, formats, images and other materials while interacting with models and inserting elements that reflected innovations. Changes in texts as affected by a myriad of events and ideologies, philosophical, theological, political, educational, and societal, are documented. We mine sources from Princeton's library, and other institutions. The resulting archeology reveals patterns and influences stemming from earlier traditions, sister disciplines such as astronomy, mathematics, and grammar, and other non-European cultures.
