Overview Overview

This module introduces students to musical sources and texts and how they provide both an insight and a challenge to researchers and performers alike. It will begin by asking ‘what is a musical text?’ and will, through case studies, address key issues such as the problem of musical notation, contemporary and historical ideas of creativity and authorship, musical ‘borrowing’, quotation in music of the past and present, the varied mediatized disseminations of music and its sources today, musical sources in their wider context, and digital archives.
