John Taverner PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

John Taverner free pdf John Taverner was the leading composer of church music under Henry VIII. His contributions to the mass and votive antiphon are varied, distinguished and sometimes innovative- he has left more important settings for the office than any of his predecessors, and even a little secular music survives. Hugh Benham provides a full-length study of the composer. He places the music in context, with the help of biographical information, discussion of Taverner's place in society and an explanation of how each piece was used in the pre-Reformation church services. He investigates the musical language of Taverner's predecessors as background for a fresh examination and appraisal of the music, in the course of which he traces similarities with the work of younger composers. Issues confronting the performer are considered, and the music is also approached from the listener's point of view, initially through close analytical inspection of the celebrated votive antiphon "Gaude Plurimum".
