By Blanche Gangwere | Go to book overview

Musica poëtica: Composition

A. Writings by Theorists on Musica poëtica

1. De musica et poëtica opusculum by Raffaele Brandolini MoyM, 107

a) De musica… is a reworked and expanded version of an earlier work, De laudibus musicae etpoesos, and was published shortly before 1513 MoyM, 108

(1) The latter treatise has not survived

(2) The De musica et poëtica… is written in rhetorical style

b) De musica et poëtica… is the first independent work to examine music in the context of the poetry that music accompanies rather than in the context of mathematical consonance

c) Brandolini's ultimate goal was to prove that both music and poetry form parts of true eloquence MoyM, 108

(1) He shifts attention away from scales and intervals toward the rhetorical goals of the singer-poet MoyM, 112

(a) He thought that while the tools for the proper practice of music lie in the realm of proportion, music's use and effectiveness is connected to the words of the text, its rhetorical goals, and the type of audience MoyM, 113

(2) He wished to present known authorities and information in a new light MoyM, 109

(a) This he wished to do in order to highlight the importance of music and poetry, both separately and, most importantly, together

(b) In his explicit reference to the connection between music and poetry he discusses the importance of hymns MoyM, 111

d) The De musica et poëtica opusculum is found in the manuscript, Rome, Biblioteca Casanatense 805 "20v-21r" MoyM, 298

e) A translation of De musica et poëtica opusculum BraD

2. Nicolaus Listenius wrote a treatise, "Musica, ab authore denuo recognita.. in 1537" ManI, 123

a) In this treatise, Listenius divides the study of music into three branches: theo rica (science), practica (performance didactics), and poëtica (composition)

(1) It is thought that he was the first to differentiate musica poëtica from musica practica HarW, 162
