The Department of Music and Dr. Katherine Norman Dearden present a Faculty Lecture by Dr. Gary Towne.
Over the Hills and Far Away:
The Place of Bergamo in the Development and Transmission of Polychoral Music.
The Italian development of music for multiple choirs revolutionized sacred music as much as the madrigal did secular music. Long thought to have originated in Venice, where it first appeared in 1550, the practice is documented in Bergamo in 1536, with surviving music. One of three mainland centers for early polychoral music, Bergamo played a significant role in its transmission beyond Italy, to Bavaria, Saxony, and elsewhere. The paper builds on Dr. Towne's 30 years' research on the subject.
