Play At Home - Medieval (around 800 - 1400)

This period of musical history starts with the fall of the Roman Empire and ends with the rise of science
and humanism in Italy in the late 1300s and early 1400s. It is a period where literacy was limited mainly
to the clerical class so that today we know a lot about medieval religious music but much less about the
secular music of the time. It is a profoundly important period for the future of European musical culture
– the religious music of these centuries will embark on a new course, abandoning the monophony of the
Greeks and Romans and exploring the new possibilities of polyphony.
