The School of Music of the University of Wales Bangor, in collaboration
with the Institute of Medieval and Early Modern Studies, is pleased to
announce the following conference:

On the relationship of imitation and text treatment? The Motet around 1500

International Musicological Conference

University of Wales, Bangor

29 March - 1 April 2007

There is general agreement in musical scholarship that the years around
1500 are characterized by momentous changes in musical history, musical
style and attitudes towards music – changes that have recently led Rob
Wegman to designate this period as the era of "Music in Crisis". In this,
the motet has always received special attention as one of the genres in
which the the shift from "15th-century styles" to "16th-century styles" is
perceived to be particularly marked.

In an article published in 1979 with the title "On the relationship of
imitation and text treatment in the Age of Josquin", Ludwig Finscher has
defined the parameters of this stylistic shift and focused them around two
musical techniques – text declamation and imitation – and around one
composer: Josquin Desprez. This focus has informed the study of motets
around 1500 ever since; it has helped to define the issues, but it has
possibly diverted attention from other (equally or more important)
questions and other composers.

The aim of this conference is twofold: For one, to review the various
directions of enquiry within the vast amount of scholarship on the motet
around 1500 that has accumulated since Finscher's article appeared; for
another, in doing so, to scrutinize and possibly to question the focus of
motet scholarship on the issues of imitation and text declamation as well
as its focus on Josquin as the centre of discourse.
