Description
Poetry and music bring each other to life, and perhaps nowhere is this more true than in the songs of the troubadours. In this class, we will listen to and examine the music of the troubadours, paying special attention to how the poetry informs the realization of the melody. Students will learn how to find, read, and sing troubadour melodies, and will discuss and listen to historically appropriate accompaniment techniques.
