Medieval Musicology VLE

Fourteenth-Century French Notation

This course covers the basics of the notational system so that you can understand the sorts of decisions that modern editors have made, check available editions against original notation, sing directly from original notation, and be prepared for the more advanced studies that would be necessary to gain editorial proficiency.

This course is designed for musicians who can read modern notation but have no knowledge of medieval notation. It is offered openly to researchers, teachers, students, and the general public to further the promotion of the subject.
