Description
Summary:'Materialities' is a cultural history of song on the page. Concentrating on print in the early modern period, it approaches its topic via the French chanson, arguably the most broadly disseminated genre of polyphony in the sixteenth century. 'Materialities' is as much about how to study print culturally as it is about 'the music itself'. In this way it aligns with histories of the book by scholars such as Roger Chartier, adding a musical perspective to studies of print culture.
