MUS528: Seminar in Musicology: The Trecento

Course Info

An exploration of fourteenth-century Italian song, with emphasis on vernacularism, influences of earlier lyric forms, and literary critical practices of Dante and his contemporaries. Analysis of representative works from the major genres (madrigale, caccia, ballata), and consideration of the individual contributions of Magister Piero, Giovanni da Cascia, Lorenzo Masini, Francesco Landini, and Zacara da Teramo.
