The Italian madrigal in the early sixteenth century : sources and interpretation by Iain Fenlon( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2013 in English and held by 584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This 1988 book examines the genesis and dissemination of the Italian madrigal in its formative stages. Iain Fenlon and James Haar have analysed this vast repertoire as it is found in manuscript and print offer information concerning the date and provenance of many fundamental sources together with a view of the subject which differs radically from previous treatments. Their study is divided into two parts. The first covers the rise and early cultivation of the madrigal, chiefly in Florence and Rome. The second contains a detailed descriptive inventory of all known manuscripts and printed editions, finishing with lists of contents and concordances in each case. This important study will serve those with an interest in Renaissance music and the changingcultural ambience of early sixteenth-century Florence and Rome."--Pub. desc

Piazza San Marco by Iain Fenlon( Book )

The Piazza San Marco, one of the most famous and instantly recognizable townscapes in the West, if not the world, has been described as a stage set, as Europes drawing room, as a painters canvas.

The ceremonial city : history, memory and myth in renaissance Venice by Iain Fenlon( Book )

12 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the heart of the book is a detailed account of four major events that significantly shaped the history of Venice, the formation of the Holy League (the coalition that brought the republic into conflict with the Ottoman Empire): the victory of that League against the Turkish fleet at the battle of Lepanto; the ceremonial arrangements that were made to welcome Henry III of France to the city in 1574; and the devasting plague of 1575-7." "This central part is frame by two others. The first concentrates on St. Mark's Square, the buildings that surround it and the social and religious life that used it as a backdrop. This involves reconstruction of the historical and mythical events that gradually led to the elaboration, by Jacopo Sansovino and others, of a monumental civic arena invested with layers of meaning that were fundamental to a sense of Venetian identity. The final section considers how the major events of the 1570s, and above all the victory at Lepanto, were metabolized in Venetian history and reconfigured in the realms of memory and myth. Important factors in this process were the role of the printing press (Venice lay at the heart of the Italian booktrade) in disseminating accounts of current events and reworking them into a further elaborator of the Myth of Venice, and the ritual and other transformations that took place (such as the construction of Palladio's church of the Redentore), and their connection to the religious matrix that provides the key to the civic ethos of the city in the late sixteenth century. Venice had become the City of God."--Jacket
Music and culture in late Renaissance Italy by Iain Fenlon( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores the role music played in the cultural, religious, and political upheavals of late Renaissance Italy, revealing how musical activity of all kinds was instrumentalized by those in power. Iain Fenlon focuses on the second half of the sixteenth century - a period often still regarded as one of decline and degeneration after the achievements of the Quattrocento followed by the calamita d'Italia - and argues that Italian culture did not lose its vigour after 1530, but underwent a transformation, as both individuals and institutions reacted to new economic, political, and particular religious circumstances."--Jacket

Con che soavità : studies in Italian opera, song, and dance, 1580-1740 by Colin Timms( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Music in 17th and early 18th century Italy was wonderfully rich and varied: in theatrical and secular vocal chamber music alone, we saw the rise of the solo song and cantata, and the birth and growth of opera, all establishing important new structural and expressive paradigms. But this was also a complex time of uncertainty and change, as 'old' and 'new' interacted in subtle and often surprising ways. There is still much to document, explore and explain in terms of composers and repertories and their multi-layered contexts. This collection of essays by European, British and American musicologists seeks to consolidate the recent growth interest in seventeenth century studies. It includes discussions of leading composers (d'India, Monteverdi, Rovetta, Steffani, Albinoni, Vivaldi and Handel), repertories (chamber laments, staged balli and operatic mad-scenes), geographical issues (the arrival of Neapolitan opera in Venice), institutional contexts, and iconography. Inspiration for the book was drawn from the poineering research of Nigel Fortune, to whom the volume is dedicated on his 70th birthday

Heinrich Glarean's books : the intellectual world of a sixteenth-century musical humanist by Iain Fenlon( Book )

11 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays investigates the work of Heinrich Glarean, one of the most influential humanists and music theorists of the sixteenth century. For the first time, Glarean's musical writings, including his masterwork the Dodekachordon, are considered in the wider context of his work in a variety of disciplines such as musicology, history, theology and geography. Contributors reference books from Glarean's private library, including rare and previously unseen material, to explore his strategies and impact as a humanist author and university teacher. The book also uses other newly discovered source material such as course notes written by students and Glarean's preparations for his own lectures to offer a fascinating picture of his reactions to contemporary debates. Providing a detailed analysis of Glarean's library as reconstructed from the surviving copies, Heinrich Glarean's Books offers new and exciting perspectives on the multidisciplinary work of an accomplished intellectual
