    This course introduces you to the people and institutions who shaped the history of Western music from antiquity through the Baroque period. Important topics of discussion will include the origins of Western musical notation, the development of polyphony, the shift from modal to tonal theories of harmony, and the invention of opera. Throughout the semester, we shall focus on understanding how even the largest of these developments came about through the decisions of individual musicians and their patrons in response to an ever-changing mosaic of historical circumstances. Students who register for this course must have completed MUS 105 or 106 in a previous semester. This course is for Music majors and minors only.
