Overview

This 1988 book examines the genesis and dissemination of the Italian madrigal in its formative stages. Iain Fenlon and James Haar have analysed this vast repertoire as it is found in manuscript and print offer information concerning the date and provenance of many fundamental sources together with a view of the subject which differs radically from previous treatments. Their study is divided into two parts. The first covers the rise and early cultivation of the madrigal, chiefly in Florence and Rome. The second contains a detailed descriptive inventory of all known manuscripts and printed editions, finishing with lists of contents and concordances in each case. This important study will serve those with an interest in Renaissance music and the changing cultural ambience of early sixteenth-century Florence and Rome.

An examination of the genesis and dissemination of the Italian madrigal in its formative stages, as it is found in manuscript and print. Fenlon and Haar offer fresh information concerning the origins of fundamental sources, and a radically new view of the subject matter. Part One covers the rise and early cultivation of the madrigal, chiefly in Florence and Rome. Part Two inventories all recorded manuscripts and printed editions, concluding with lists of contents and concordances in each case. There are 33 beautiful b&w plates, as well as excellent bibliographies and indexes. For students and scholars of Renaissance music or of early sixteenth-century Florence and Rome. Acidic paper.
