Course Description

MUS 117
Studies in European Music and Culture to 1750
Spring

This course involves studies in European Music and Culture during three of its most innovative and rich historical periods – Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque – from the beginnings of notated diatonic music (Assyria, 3,400 years ago) through the chants of the mystic visionary Hildegard of Bingen, to the glorious music of Johann Sebastian Bach. We look at how this exceptional period is responsible for some of the greatest innovations (from the advent of printing and publishing to the rise of polyphonic music and harmony) and masterworks by both men and women, from both “West” and "East."
Offered every other year beginning 2019-20.
