MUSIC 7201 - [Seminar in Medieval Music]

Spring. 4 credits.

Next offered 2014-2015.

J. Peraino.

Topic: The Chansons of Guillaume de Machaut. Description: Guillaume de Machaut (1300-1377) has canonical status in music history as the first composer who was actively involved in the collection and preservation of his musical and literary works. These in turn display a high degree of authorial self-consciousness and ironic play redolent of postmodern literature and theory. This course examines the musical, literary, historical, and material contexts of his most “modern” repertory, the formes fixes chansons (virelai, ballade, rondeau, and lai), and also addresses historiographical and theoretical approaches to the study of medieval music and its and cultural meaning.
