Mapping the Post-Tridentine Motet – conference, Friday 17-Sunday 19 April 2015

The post-Tridentine motet has been surprisingly neglected in recent scholarship, and many crucial questions remain unanswered. With this conference we aimed to re-open the discussion on the immense corpus of polyphonic and polychoral motets produced and performed all over Europe in the period ca. 1560 to ca. 1610.

Speakers included David Crook, Christian Leitmeir, Kerry McCarthy, Owen Rees, and Noel O'Regan.
