Baroque music by Claude V Palisca( Book )

53 editions published between 1968 and 2001 in 6 languages and held by 2,899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book invites the reader to study with ear and eye some typical examples of the music of the baroque period. Is is not a comprehensive survey or a gallery of the most famous composers and their works. Certain important figures are hardly named, while others lesser known are treated at length, and this goes also for the various categories of composition. The emphasis is upon giving the reader an entry into the most significant manners of composition through concrete examples. The reader will gain a method of approaching the principle styles and genres, keys to intimate understanding and further exploration. The approach to analysis is based as much as possible on criteria and terminology common in the baroque period. -- from Preface

The art of counterpoint : part three of Le istitutioni harmoniche, 1558 by Gioseffo Zarlino( Book )

14 editions published between 1968 and 2011 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Zarlino's Le Istitutioni harmoniche, published in 1558, is one of the most influential music treatises of all time. To his contemporaries it revealed the secrets of composition he had learned from Adrian Willaert, who brought to Italy the polyphonic art of the Netherlands. To the modern scholar Zarlino's treatise illumines as does no other of its time the compositional technique of the golden age of vocal polyphony. The essence of this art is contained in Part III, "The Art of Counterpoint," which is translated here for the first time. Zarlino's instructions became the basis for counterpoint teaching for two centuries before they were obscured by the neo-Palestrinian method of Johann Joseph Fux. In the past fifty years, with the revival of the music of Zarlino's age, scholars have returned to the purity of his rules. The Art of Counterpoint ranges over every aspect of composition in the strict sixteenth-century style. Zarlino defines the nature of the consonances and dissonances and their usage. He considers the motion of parts, parallel and contrary; he defines and describes note-against-note and diminished counterpoint for two voices written both on plain chant subjects and on rhythmically varied subjects."--Publisher's description

Music and ideas in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by Claude V Palisca( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Music and Ideas in the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries shows Claude V. Palisca - one of the preeminent musicologists of our time - at the height of his powers, discussing the relationships between musical style and intellectual history, the influence of humanism on the revival of music theory, the competing notions of style, and the intermingled effects of rhetoric, poetics, religion, and science. Palisca's discussions demonstrate how this period's musical thought was penetrated by many aspects of culture, including religious reform, secularization, the emergence of vernacular literature, documentary historiography, the rise and decline of neo-Platonism, Aristotelian poetics, the scientific movement, the revival of rhetoric, and openness of emotional experience

Musica enchiriadis ; and, Scolica enchiriadis( Book )

12 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides the first complete English translation of two significant early music theory texts, the so-called Musica enchiriadis and its longer companion, the Scolica enchiriadis. Written in the late ninth century, both texts influenced many subsequent medieval authors. The two treatises are most famous for providing the earliest descriptions of organum, the oldest form of Western polyphony. They also include the oldest notated forms of many chant melodies, a more developed theory of the modes than found in Aurelian and other early theoretical writings, information about performance practice (including rhythm and the use of instruments), and numerous references to and quotations from a wide range of earlier authors, from Vergil through Augustine to Boethius. The treatises are introduced by an essay that places them in their historical context, showing their debt to earlier intellectual and musical traditions, their connection to then-current musical thought and practices, and their relationships to later writings on music
