Though many have written on the musical achievements of the Franco-Flemish school, this book is the first to show how the artists and composers of Bruges worked side by side to shape their acoustic and visual environment and to express their fellow citizens' spiritual needs in art. By combining the methods of modern musicology with those of local historiography, Strohm vividly recreates the music of 14th- and 15th-century Flanders in its socioeconomic context, from the pageants and minstrelsy of the court to popular entertainments and the earliest public concerts.

About the Author:

Reinhard Strohm, Professor of Music History, Yale University.

Review:


"A magisterial fusion of music history and local historiography...Beyond its vast erudition, modestly concealed beneath a lively and engaging prose style, the book offers much more: it explodes with ideas, unearths and reexamines questions that seemed to have been laid to rest long ago, and approaches music historiography in a way which one hopes future studies will emulate....Brilliant, innovative, and provocative, Strohm's book is a paradigm of history and criticism at its best and a landmark in the historiography of late medieval music."--Journal of the American Musicological Society


"Brilliant and at times provocatively written...a remarkable achievement; a major contribution to our understanding of 15th-century music."--Early Music


"Packed with fascinating details about the musical life of Bruges and those who practiced it...[the book] must be considered one of the major studies of its kind....It is invaluable in filling a gap in our knowledge and offers a fascinating glimpse into the manifold areas of musical creation and performance in an important Flemish city."--Speculum


"Strohm's contribution is new again, equally and suggestively rich. It is a major contribution to 15th century studies."--Musical Times


"Exceptionally rich in facts, ideas and hypotheses, enough of them to occupy scholars for years to come."--Times Literary Supplement
