The Critical Nexus: Tone-System, Mode, and Notation in Early Medieval Music (Ams Studies in Music) by Charles M. Atkinson

The Critical Nexus confronts an important and vexing enigma of early writings on music: why chant, which was understood to be divinely inspired, needed to be altered in order to work within the then-operative modal system. To unravel this mystery, Charles Atkinson creates a broad framework that moves from Greek harmonic theory to the various stages in the transmission of Roman chant, citing numerous music treatises from the sixth to the twelfth century.

Eight Centuries of Troubadours and Trouvères: The Changing Identity of Medieval Music by John Haines

Eight Centuries of Troubadours and Trouvères: The Changing Identity of Medieval Music by John Haines
Publisher: Cambridge University Press | Number Of Pages: 360 | Publication Date: 2004-08-09 | ISBN-10: 0521826721 | PDF | 18 Mb

From the medieval chansonniers to contemporary rap renditions, this book traces the changing interpretation of troubadour and trouvère music, a repertoire of songs which have successfully maintained public interest for eight centuries. A study of their reception, therefore, serves to illustrate the development of the modern concept of "medieval music". Important stages in their evolution include sixteenth-century antiquarianism; the Enlightenment synthesis of scholarly and popular traditions; and the infusion of archaeology and philology in the nineteenth century, leading to more recent theories on medieval rhythm.

The Evolution of the Art of Music

The Evolution of the Art of Music (Cambridge Library Collection - Music) by C. Hubert H. Parry
English | July 20, 2009 | ISBN: 1108001793 | 360 Pages | PDF | 13 MB

C. Hubert H. Parry (1848-1918), knighted in 1902 for his services to music, was a distinguished composer, conductor and musicologist. In the first of these roles he is best known for his settings of Blake's 'Jerusalem' and the coronation anthem 'I was glad'. He was an enthusiastic teacher and proselytiser of music, believing strongly in its ability to widen and deepen the experience of Man, and this book, published in 1896 as a revised version of his 1893 The Art of Music, appeared in a series called 'The International Scientific Series'. Parry's intention is to trace the origins of music in 'the music of savages, folk music, and medieval music' and to show 'the continuous process of the development of the Musical Art in actuality'.

The attempt to play music with the styles and instruments of its era–commonly referred to as the early music movement–has become immensely popular in recent years. For instance, Billboard's "Top Classical Albums" of 1993 and 1994 featured Anonymous 4, who sing medieval music, and the best-selling Beethoven recording of 1995 was a period-instruments symphony cycle led by John Eliot Gardiner, who is Deutsche Grammophon's top-selling living conductor. But the movement has generated as much controversy as it has best-selling records, not only about the merits of its results, but also about the validity of its approach.
