During the first half of the fifteenth century, the medieval chanson underwent its greatest flowering in the Court of the Dukes of Burgundy. While maintaining medieval forms and functions, the chanson of this period acquired an eloquence and creative scope which are manifest in the works of its leading composers. Here, Kemp considers the polyphonic chanson within the literary, aesthetic, and social contexts of court culture during the reign of Philip the Good, and by analyzing their structure, is able to establish stylistic criteria for their ascription to Dufay and Binchois, the masters of the period.

Walter H. Kemp, Chairman, Department of Music, Dalhousie University.Review:
"Significant as much for the subjects it addresses as for the insights it affords....Important, pathbreaking...A pleasure to read and to look at. Most significant, one cannot read it without quickened interest in the music itself. In that sense its value is inestimable."--Early Music
