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

20 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 633 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
The crisis of music in early modern Europe, 1470-1530 by Rob C Wegman( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 339 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

The mirror of music : Book the Seventh by Jacobus( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Speculum musicae of Magister Jacobus de Ispania from Liège is the ultimate Medieval Summa of music. Compiled probably during the 1330s, it comprises no fewer than seven books, altogether totaling more than 375,000 words. Princeton musicologist Rob C. Wegman offers a translation of the seventh and final book, which deals with contemporary polyphony. This part of the Speculum is the notorious—and uncommonly impassioned—diatribe against new musical and notational practices that had gained currency in France in the second quarter of the fourteenth century. Jacobus proves himself thoroughly schooled in Scholastic philosophy and prosecutes the case with relentless determination, using his consummate rhetorical skills and his fierce critical intelligence to full advantage. What drove him to launch the attack was his sense of personal loyalty to the music and musicians he had loved during his years as a university student at Paris, probably in the 1290s, as well as his faith in the decisive power of rigorous and methodical reasoning. Yet to his infinite sadness, his demonstrations proved of little avail against the more powerful contemporary forces of changing musical taste and practical expediency. Magister Jacobus concludes his treatise with a moving prayer of thanksgiving, in which he looks forward to the life to come, and appears ready to part from this world, which had so bitterly disappointed him in his final years
