Music and culture in late Renaissance Italy

£34.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Dr Fenlon explores the role music played in the cultural, religious, and political upheavals of late Renaissance Italy, revealing how musical activity of all kinds was instrumentalized by those in power. Focusing on the second half of the sixteenth century - a period still often regarded as one of decline and degeneration after the achievements of the Quattrocento and before the calamit d'Italia - the author argues that Italian culture did not lose its vigour after 1530, but underwent a transformation, as both individuals and institutions reacted to new economic, political, and religious circumstances.
