This course examines a group of topics and methodologies currently relevant in research concerning music before 1700. The course reconstructs (parts of) the musical repertoire and the music cultures of (late) medieval and/or early modern Europe as transmitted to us in a wide range of sources. We start with an introduction to how “music” was conceptualized in pre-modern Europe. We then expand to include narrative, visual and documentary evidence allowing us to place music and sounds in the appropriate historical and social contexts. Particular attention will be placed on the texts and paratexts directly accompanying the music that we study. In addition to highlighting the ceremonial functions of pre-modern music in both the sacred and the secular spheres, we pay close attention to the exchange of musical ideas, the use of musical notation and other methods of transmission, the role of music patronage, and technologies of memory, book-making, and print in a predominantly oral culture. Topics examined in this course in the past include musical riddles, how medieval authors conceptualized animals and their sounds in songs as mirrors of moralized human behaviour, and historically informed performance practice.
