MUSIC 3314

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

Imagine waking to the sound of bells, getting the latest news and gossip via song, singing bawdy rounds at the tavern, or gathering in a secret location to hear forbidden music. This course examines the profound cultural changes taking place in seventeenth- century England and how music reflected and even helped create these transformations. We'll consider religious extremism, colonialism, political and scientific revolutions and connect these topics to our own political and cultural conflicts. We'll read primary accounts of music both heard and made and explore sounds from the sublime music of William Byrd to the noises of everyday life, learning to listen to the contexts that invisibly surround them. No prior musical knowledge or experience needed.

When Offered Spring.
