Description - Music in the Medieval West by Margot Fassler

Medieval music in its cultural, social, and intellectual contexts.
Margot Fassler's Music in the Medieval West imaginatively
reconstructs the repertoire of the Middle Ages by drawing on a wide
range of sources. In addition to highlighting the ceremonial and
dramatic functions of medieval music (both sacred and secular), she
pays special attention to the exchange of musical ideas, the
development of musical notation and other methods of transmission,
and the role of women in musical culture.
Western Music in Context: A Norton History comprises six
volumes of moderate length, each written in an engaging style by a
recognized expert. Authoritative and current, the series examines
music in the broadest sense?as sounds notated, performed, and
heard?focusing not only on composers and works, but also on
broader social and intellectual currents.
