A Talk about Polyphony

I gave a talk at the Church of St Mary of the Rosary, Forest Hall at 7.30pm on Tuesday 26 February. The title was "More than One Voice - the Development of Polyphony in Liturgical Music 1300-1600".

I illustrated the talk with recordings of music by Machaut, Dufay, Josquin, Palestrina and Victoria and even included an extract from Pftizner's opera "Palestrina".

Many thanks for your talk. I wish there had been more people there to hear it but I enjoyed it very much.

Polyphony - isn't that when the rot set in?
