This paper is the result of a void which I observed in Renaissance and Reformation textbooks. It seems that many textbook authors neglect to Include a section on mu sic, or else they treat the subject very briefly. Perhaps this occurs because they do not think that their readers could comprehend the specific aspects of musical form involved. Or perhaps the information Is too deeply buried in musicological textbooks to be accessible to the layman. In any case, this paper is an attempt to examine the major musicians, stylistic techniques, and musical developments of a key historical period in which music was particularly significant.
