Burgundian Basse - An overview
- Wilhelm of Northpass
- Heidelberg (204) on Friday at 9:00AM
This class will explore Burgundian Basse and give some detail to what I have found to be the most graceful and the most under-appreciated of the period styles. An overview of the available sources for basse found in Burgundy, France, and England in the 15th and 16th centuries will be discussed. Next these sources will be compared and contrasted to synthesize what we can learn from the form as it changed between places and century. Finally, we will conclude with a discussion of what we can assert or reasonably conclude about the performance of this wonderful, graceful form.
