Medieval Music by Richard H. Hoppin surveys the history and development of music in the Western world from its roots in early Christian liturgy up to the initial glimmerings of the Renaissance in the fifteenth century. Hoppin considers the sources and uses of monophonic chant, the development of increasingly complex polyphony, and the earliest surviving examples of secular Medieval Music by Richard H. Hoppin surveys the history and development of music in the Western world from its roots in early Christian liturgy up to the initial glimmerings of the Renaissance in the fifteenth century. Hoppin considers the sources and uses of monophonic chant, the development of increasingly complex polyphony, and the earliest surviving examples of secular songs and dances. Covering both national styles and major composers, Medieval Music provides a thorough overview of music's earliest recorded history. A companion anthology is available that includes scores for many of the examples discussed in the book. This is a volume from The Norton Introduction to Music History, presenting the music of the Western world to the nonspecialist in six volumes. In each one, an outstanding musicologist surveys the music of a specific period, discusses its major composers, and examines the forces that influenced and helped shape their works. The series is part of the tradition of excellence in musical scholarship that Norton has established in this field.

    So a music nerd's book of books on period music, most helpful for me in putting an historical perspective on the music of the times of olden days... seriously the church modes had a great illustration and key to understanding the relationships between Dominants, Finals, and penta and hexa chords. like many texts on early music what we don't know and it seems never will get to the bottom of is perhaps more interesting, but still pleanty of disembodied words carefully decribed int the text to decr So a music nerd's book of books on period music, most helpful for me in putting an historical perspective on the music of the times of olden days... seriously the church modes had a great illustration and key to understanding the relationships between Dominants, Finals, and penta and hexa chords. like many texts on early music what we don't know and it seems never will get to the bottom of is perhaps more interesting, but still pleanty of disembodied words carefully decribed int the text to decribe the mysteries of this art period.
