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 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. Get A Copy. Hardcover , pages. Published June 17th by W.

In medieval music , the rhythmic modes were set patterns of long and short durations or rhythms. The value of each note is not determined by the form of the written note as is the case with more recent European musical notation , but rather by its position within a group of notes written as a single figure called a "ligature" , and by the position of the ligature relative to other ligatures. Modal notation was developed by the composers of the Notre Dame school from to , replacing the even and unmeasured rhythm of early polyphony and plainchant with patterns based on the metric feet of classical poetry, and was the first step towards the development of modern mensural notation Hoppin , The rhythmic modes of Notre Dame Polyphony were the first coherent system of rhythmic notation developed in Western music since antiquity. Later in the century, the motets by Petrus de Cruce and the many anonymous composers, which were descended from discant clausulae, also used modal rhythm, often with much greater complexity than was found earlier in the century: for example each voice sometimes sang in a different mode, as well as a different language.
