Pre-Baroque Practice - EMUS1670

Year - 2020

This UoS will give vocal and instrumental students both theoretical and practical experience in pre-Baroque European music. Students will examine the basics of sixteenth- and early-seventeenth-century performance practice, discover how the sixteenth-century musical mind approached art, and understand how perceptions of the music of this period are coloured by modern aesthetics. Students will learn about and apply practices elucidated in a range of historical written texts to sacred and secular ensemble music of the era, using historically appropriate instruments and/or techniques.

1 x 2hr seminar per week (12 weeks per semester)

Tutorial participation and preparation (50%); Spoken presentation (25%); Performance Exam (25%).
