Learn about monastic music making in an era of political change and religious upheaval. This talk will explore a selection of chant books, musical fragments and polyphonic choir books produced or commissioned by monasteries in Southern Germany during the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Era - focussing in particular on the aftermath of the Reformation and the era of Catholic Reform until the outbreak of the Thirty-Years War.
