Born for the muses : the life and Masses of Jacob Obrecht by Rob C Wegman( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 619 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Son of a town trumpeter, Jacob Obrecht became one of the most prominent composers in Europe in the late fifteenth century. In Born for the Muses Rob Wegman enlarges our picture of the social and cultural conditions that framed his world, drawing on a wealth of new archival sources and a newly discovered dated portrait that sheds light on his development as a composer. Obrecht's greatest contribution lay in the field of mass composition. In a penetrating stylistic analysis, Wegman treats each of the thirty-odd surviving masses as a historical record, tracing influences and establishing a rich context for the development of Obrecht's musical language. This new assessment of his creative achievement and historical significance entirely changes the face of Obrecht studies and of late fifteenth-century music in general."--Jacket
The crisis of music in early modern Europe, 1470-1530 by Rob C Wegman( Book )

17 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Yet defenders of polyphony struck back with a vicious counteroffensive, and for several decades music would remain a topic of bitter controversy. When the crisis had finally passed, in the 1530s, nothing would ever be the same again." "In The Crisis of Music in Early Modern Europe, 1470-1530, Rob C. Wegman tells the story of this cultural upheaval, drawing on a wide range of little-known texts and documents, and weaving these together in a narrative that takes the reader on an eventful musical journey through early modern Europe."--Jacket

Improvising early music by Johannes Menke( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studying improvised music is always a challenge, due to its volatility and unpredictability. But what about studying musical improvisation from before the age of sound recordings? In this book three experts give their view on aspects of musical improvisation in the late medieval, renaissance, and early baroque periods. Historical sources show us how improvisation was an integral part of music education and how closely improvisation and composition were linked. This gives new insights into the way music was played in its original historical context and a new way to look at written scores from the past.0This book will appeal to anyone interested in the historical background of our written musical heritage, and to musicians who want to gain a deeper insight in the way this music was created.0
