This subject introduces students to the principal genres and works of music in France from c.1600 to the Revolution (1789). Musical practice is also situated within its political, cultural, and religious frameworks to examine how it was shaped by extra-musical factors that impinged on the work of composers, theorists, and professional musicians at large. Case studies including operas, ballets, symphonies, and large-scale sacred works will introduce students to many of the principal composers, genres, and musical developments in ancien régime France. Students are introduced to issues and debates in notation, performance practice, and music theory from France in this period.
