Richard Freedman, Music in the Renaissance

Jennifer S. Thomas


Music in the Renaissance, part of the series Western Music in Context, offers an alternative to the comprehensive, total package approach to teaching music history, offering instead a research-based textbook, selective in both content and musical repertory. Viewing music as a part of culture rather than as stylistic end in itself allows learners to comprehend not only what music was like, but why it existed and how it functioned. Accompanying websites enrich the text with links to scholarship, primary sources for both music and culture, and traditional study tools, such as worksheets and listening lists.
