Tess Knighton, David Fallows

Tess Knighton, David Fallows. The years since the early music revival gathered momentum in the 1960s and 70s have witnessed many new developments in the field of pre-Baroque music: some revelatory recordings and concert performances have opened our ears to a new range of possible sound worlds for music of this period, and scholars have made discoveries that in many ways challenge the accepted. Views about this until recently neglected end of the repertory.

Tess Knighton, David Fallows.

Over the past forty years, early music has been "rediscovered" by both performers and listeners. Enterprising musicians have saved countless major works of European music from the abyss of being forgetten, and have attempted to revive period instruments and performance practice.

The most commonly used meaning today relates to the organisation of pitch in scales. Other meanings refer to the notation of rhythms. Berkeley: University of California Press.

The Companion to Medieval and Renaissance Music is a fascinating new survey of the music and culture of Europe from the beginning of the Christian era to 1600. With almost 50 essays on the social, historical, theoretical, and performance contexts of the music and musicians of the period, prepared by 45 contributors, including such internationally known scholars and performers as Reinhold Strohm, Christopher Page, Margaret Bent, Bruno Turner, Thomas Binkley, and Paul Hillier, the Companion offers fresh perspectives on the musical styles, research sources, and performance practices of the medieval and Renaissance eras.The book is divided into six parts. Part I, "The Music of the Past and the Modern Ear," examines the quality of medieval and Renaissance compositions, the English a cappella heresy, medieval recording history, medieval performance practices, and fundamental questions of authenticity. Part II, "Aspects of Music and Society," discusses mainstream and provincial music and the dissemination of ideas in the Middle Ages, the critical role of endowments in the flourishing of sacred polyphony, women's history and early music, and the medieval conception of the "true musician." Part III, "Questions of Form and Style," covers vocal and instrumental genres, and techniques of composition; it includes striking essays on chant, monophonic song, early Western polyphony, mass polyphony, polyphonic song, keyboard music of the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, the medieval fiddle, and Renaissance wind ensembles. Part IV, "Using the Evidence," explores medieval music iconography, music in Italian Renaissance painting, archival research, and the challenge of orally transmitted music. Part V, "Pre-Performance Decisions," examines the medieval modal system; the role of the editor; and Renaissance pitch, underlay, and pronunciation. Part VI, "Performance Techniques," discusses such performance problems as vernacular pronunciation, tuning, tempo, reconstructing lost voices, and instrumental accompaniment. The Companion also features an extensive glossary, a chronology, end-of-chapter bibliographies, and 50 illustrations.
Comments to eBook Companion to Medieval and Renaissance Music
Goktilar
The book itself met up to my expectations. I am very glad I bought it.
Unluckily the wrapping was not as good; the brandnew book was therefor a little damaged.
Granigrinn
The chapter on musica ficta alone made the purchase worth it. This is very much a book for dipping into from time to time, rather than reading straight through.

Good, valuable source of information.

Readers of my many reviews of European music from the 11th to the 16th centuries have asked me more questions than I can find time to answer. This book does the job more eloquently than I ever could, including 49 essays by noted musicologists like Reinhard Strohm along with performing musicians of the caliber of Anthony Rooley and Paul Hillier. Here's a list of the subject sections:
1. The Music of the Past and the Modern Ear
2. Aspects of Music and Society
3. Questions of Form and Style
4. Using the Evidence
5. Pre-performance Decisions
6. Performance Techniques

Topic 3 is especially deep, covering the genres of vocal and instrumental music, the origins of medieval instruments, and the techniques of composition in the era before keyboards.

Some of the essays are clearly by scholars for scholars, but the majority will be comprehensible to anyone with a basic musical vocabulary.

This book is a series of very short (sometimes just a couple of pages) articles on major issues about Medieval & Renaissance music. Great scholars explain the matter in a very succinct and accessible way. All the aspects of the musical phenomena are investigated. From notation, to performance, criticism, iconography, historical context, etc.
I strongly recommend this book to integrate a music history textbook because it allows the reader to consider exclusively some genres and some particular issues.
Ynye
This is an eclectic mix of chapters written by some of the most eminent early music specialists. Some chapters are too academic and speclalised for me but others are fascinating and have information that you would not find elsewhere. Recommended to the connoisseur.
