9780198163121: Cross, Sword, and Lyre: Sacred Music at the Imperial Court of Ferdinand II of Habsburg (1615-1637) (Oxford Monographs on Music)

This book introduces a nearly lost music culture: the Vienna court of the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II (1619-37). During the Thirty Years War, Vienna was home to one of the largest, most resplendent musical organizations in Europe, making it an important hub for the assimilation of modern Italianate music in the German-speaking lands. Saunders looks at the music in its cultural context, showing how sacred music at this pivotal center was shaped by the composers, institutions, and ideas of the period, and he examines the life and works of the most important court composers, particularly the two imperial chapel masters Giovanni Priuli and Giovanni Valentini.

Review:


"...provides impressive documentation of the musical background that accompanied the confessionalization of politics at the Habsburg court during the reign of Ferdinand II..."--American Historical Review


"Saunders's work provides a clear, concise summary of many of the stylistic developments in sacred music during the early seventeenth century....This book should be a stimulus to further research."--Notes


"This is an important and special book... Throughout Saunders proves his comprehensive knowledge of different sources and the existing scholarly literature, which are not only cited, but also placed in context and interpreted....it is to be expected that this book will be a standard reference work for musicologists specializing in the time of Ferdinand II."--Austrian History Yearbook
