" ... Modern attempts to render the mass in all four of the traditional modal frameworks have been unsuccessful without the addition of excessive editorial accidentals; i.e., those over and above the accepted rules for fifteenth century musica ficta. Unfortunately, the inclusion of editorial accidentals has been difficult to avoid, since without these the contrapuntal obstacles appear insurmountable ... An examination of the remaining thirteen mass cycles, from the standpoints of cadence and pitch structure, has led the present author to conclude that the Missa cuiusvis toni has at least two, and not more than three, operative pitch centers. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how this conclusion is justified."--Abstract.

The main function of western musical notation is incidental: it prescribes and records sound. But during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, notation began to take on an aesthetic life all its own. In the early fifteenth century, a musician might be asked to sing a line slower, faster, or starting on a different pitch than what is written. By the end of the century composers had begun tasking singers with solving elaborate puzzles to produce sounds whose relationship to the written notes is anything but obvious. These instructions, which appear by turns unnecessary and confounding, challenge traditional conceptions of music writing that understand notation as an incidental consequence of the desire to record sound. This book explores innovations in late-medieval music writing as well as how modern scholarship on notation has informedsometimes erroneouslyideas about the premodern era. Drawing on both musical and music-theoretical evidence, this book reframes our understanding of late-medieval musical notation as a system that was innovative, cutting-edge, and dynamicone that could be used to generate music, not just preserve it.

The universally acclaimed and award-winning Oxford History of Western Music is the eminent musicologist Richard Taruskin's provocative, erudite telling of the story of Western music from its earliest days to the present. Each book in this superlative five-volume set illuminates-through a representative sampling of masterworks- the themes, styles, and currents that give shape and direction to a significant period in the history of Western music. This first volume in Richard Taruskin's majestic history, Music from the Earliest Notations to the Sixteenth Century , sweeps across centuries of musical innovation to shed light on the early forces that shaped the development of the Western classical tradition. Beginning with the invention of musical notation more than a thousand years ago, Taruskin addresses topics such as the legend of Saint Gregory and Gregorian chant, Augustine's and Boethius's thoughts on music, the liturgical dramas of Hildegard of Bingen, the growth of the music printing business, the literary revolution and the English madrigal, the influence of the Reformation and the Counter-Reformation, and the operas of Monteverdi. Laced with brilliant observations, memorable musical analysis, and a panoramic sense of the interactions between history, culture, politics, art, literature, religion, and music, this book will be essential reading for anyone who wishes to understand this rich and diverse period.

A two-volume translation of the major texts produced by Luther in the critical years of the Reformation. Volume I: The Basis of the Protestant Reformation The four years from the Wittenberg disputation of 1517 to the Diet of Worms in 1521 provide one of the most dramatic stories in human history. In those years a young theological tutor emerged from obscurity to disrupt Western Christendom and to refashion a large part of it. They were years of prodigious activity for Luther himself, and there can be no true understanding of the Reformation apart from the writings, some long, some quite short, which came from his pen during those years. Lee-Woolf has done great service to the study of Luther by translating the most significant of these writings. Introductions and explanatory notes make clear their historical context. The student will find them invaluable. Lee-Woolf's lively and virile translation makes the authentic Luther step out of the pages, and brings the reader close to great events which are still formative in the life of the Church and the world. Volume II: The Spirit of the Protestant Reformation In this second volume of the Reformation Writings of Martin Luther there are two focal points of interest - the dramatic event at Worms, 1521, as seen in contemporary accounts as well as mirrored in Luther's own writings, and Luther the pastor, at pains to build up simple folk in the Christian faith and life. Luther's immense Biblical understanding as shown in his Prefaces to the Psalms and the New Testament, and his exposition of the Church's worship contained in the Preface to the Lord's Supper and Order of Service, provide a luminous insight into Luther's mind and purpose. The volume is very aptly sub-titled The Spirit of the Reformation. As before, Lee-Woolf's translation brings to life the writer, his thoughts, and his times.

The Oxford History of Western Music is a magisterial survey of the traditions of Western music by one of the most prominent and provocative musicologists of our time. This text illuminates, through a representative sampling of masterworks, those themes, styles, and currents that give shape and direction to each musical age. Taking a critical perspective, this text sets the details of music, the chronological sweep of figures, works, and musical ideas, within the larger context of world affairs and cultural history. Written by an authoritative, opinionated, and controversial figure in musicology, The Oxford History of Western Music provides a critical aesthetic position with respect to individual works, a context in which each composition may be evaluated and remembered. Taruskin combines an emphasis on structure and form with a discussion of relevant theoretical concepts in each age, to illustrate how the music itself works, and how contemporaries heard and understood it. It also describes how the c

JOHANNES OCKEGHEM (1410/1425-1497) est depuis la Renaissance au centre des préoccupations de théoriciens, d'amateurs, de musicologues qui se penchent sur le XVe siècle. Jugé par les uns compositeur difficile, voire énigmatique, hautement intellectuel ou même mystique, d'autres perçoivent dans sa technique musicale des éléments irrationnels que certains interprètent comme les traces d'une rationalité aboutie. Selon Erasme, il était " summo musico " et possédait une " aurea vox ". " Roy sur tous les chantres " aux dires de Nicole Le Vestu ou encore " Sol lucens super omnes " pour Molinet. Cosimo Bartoli n'hésite pas à le comparer à Donatello et le qualifie " homme de la Renaissance ". Né dans le Hainaut, il travaille quelques années à Anvers et à Moulins avant de s'installer à Tours où il exercera plusieurs fonctions officielles : premier chapelain du roi ainsi que chanoine et trésorier de la basilique Saint-Martin, il fut également mainte de chapelle à la cour de Charles VII et Louis XI. Ce volume réunit les contributions au XIe Colloque d'études humanistes qui s'est tenu au Centre d'Etudes Supérieures de la Renaissance en février 1997 à l'occasion du cinquième centenaire de la mort du compositeur.
