Music from the Earliest Notations to the Sixteenth Century

Music from the Earliest Notations to the Sixteenth Century

This section from Volume 1 of the Oxford History of Western Music covers the very beginnings of what is considered Western music - beginning with the origins of Gregorian chant, through the evolution of polyphony, to the development of the many different musical forms of the sixteenth century that still show their influence to this day. It is an essential resource not only for music historians but for anyone studying Western music theory as well.

NOTE: Full content only available with an Oxford History of Western Music subscription.
