  Medieval music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
In this era, music was both sacred and secular, although almost no early secular music has survived, and since notation was a relatively late development, reconstruction of this music, especially before the 12th century, is currently subject to conjecture (see authentic performance).
The music of the troubadors and trouvères was a vernacular tradition of monophonic secular song, probably accompanied by instruments, sung by professional, occasionally itinerant, musicians who were as skilled as poets as they were singers and instrumentalists.
The music of the trouvères was similar to that of the troubadors, but was able to survive into the thirteenth century unaffected by the war of extermination against the Albigenses.

 Early European Music -Part Two
Thus the music that has come down to us from early times--that is, the music that modern musicologists have transcribed from old notation into modern notation--represents only a basic outline, a melodic and rhythmic and harmonic skeleton upon which to "improve" (or improvise) spontaneously during a performance.
Thus, music historians today believe that most music of the Middle Ages is irretrievably lost because it was not composed on paper but only existed in the minds of the musicians.
There are two reasons for this abundance of sacred music from early times: (1) those who were formally trained in music, monks and official members of the clergy, were primarily interested in preserving church music and (2) religion was the main integrating force in early European cultures, particularly during the Middle Ages.

 Early European Music -Part One
The reason for this is that most of the music one hears on radio, television, and in the films today (folk, pop, jazz, classical, et al) is based upon musical principles that emerged during the Baroque Era--a period that made a conscious and dramatic break with the Renaissance past.
Music making is the activity of Everyman, exacting the talents of variously trained amateurs who, with industry and practice, decorate their recreation and leisure in moments of social intercourse.
Thus, since vocal music was composed in accordance with the natural ranges of the human voice and since instruments were used to substitute for (or double) vocal melodies, most instruments were constructed in a family of different sizes in imitation of the different ranges of the human voice.

 Béla Bartók
There he deepened his acquaintance with Wagner, though it was the music of Strauss, which he met at the Budapest premiere of Also sprach Zarathustra in 1902, that had most influence.
Meanwhile his music was beginning to be influenced by this activity and by the music of Debussy that Kodály had brought back from Paris: both opened the way to new, modal kinds of harmony and irregular metre.
The move from inward chromaticism to a glowing major (though modally tinged) tonality is basic to the Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta (1936) and the Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion (1937), both written for performance in Switzerland at a time when the political situation in Hungary was growing unsympathetic.
