Modal Counterpoint, Renaissance Style introduces the rules for writing and analysing 16th-century music through a wide variety of carefully graded exercises. It begins with species counterpoint -- the method used to teach voice-leading and the treatment of consonances and dissonances in contrapuntal composition -- with exercises modelled on examples from among 1600. Unlike other books that bear little stylistic relation to the music of the period, this is the only text available that uses examples and concepts based on Renaissance treatises and contemporaneous theoretical sources. This book provides a conceptual framework that guides the students' writing and analysis and that teaches students the general principles of composition. The author's selection of Renaissance repertoire examples illustrates the range of possibilities within a given technical formula. The concluding chapters provide conceptual tools and formal schemes for building longer pieces, encouraging students to see analysis and composition as complementary activities. By the end of the book students are writing real compositions, not just drill exercises. Adapted from eight years of class testing, this textbook includes many helpful tools for students and teachers, including carefully chosen musical examples, different levels of student exercises with exercise blanks, historial asides explaining interesting and relevant issues of the period, a glossary of terms, brief information on theorists whose work was examined to make this text, and brief notes to the teacher. This book uniquely combines the stylistic accuracy of teh "style-oriented" texts with more systematic species counterpoint approach, favoured by many as a pedagogical method.
