Anthology for Music in the Medieval West, part of the Western Music in Context series, is the ideal companion to Music in the Medieval West. Forty-four carefully chosen works-including plainchant, the earliest experiments in polyphony, excerpts from Latin liturgical dramas and the elaborate polyphony of the fourteenth century-offer representative examples of the music of the period. Commentaries following each score present a careful analysis of the music and online links to purchase and download recordings make listening easier than ever.
