This symposium will focus on a range of issues all related to time in polyphony of the 15th and 16th centuries. What is tactus and how should a conductor show it? How to navigate the complex system of mensuration signs? Can we know what the tempo was?
Special attention will be given to Jacob Obrecht’s Missa Maria zart, a work offering a wide range of challenges regarding issues of time.
The Cappella Pratensis (dir. Stratton Bull) performs the mass on Friday evening, 17 August at the Laus Polyphoniae Festival, Antwerp.
Specialist Prof. Ruth I. DeFord (New York, Hunter College) will be the central guest in sessions bringing together researchers, performers and music-lovers (among Ruth I. DeFord’s publications is the authoritative 'Tactus, Rhythm and Mensuration in Renaissance Music' (Cambridge University Press, 2015)).
Format: structured conversation and discussion
Core team: Stratton Bull, Ruth DeFord, David Burn, Fabrice Fitch
