Back Music 2273 Introduction and Links

  1. Facsimile of a Primary Source of music (notation) or a printed document concerning music history (such as an early printed book concerning music theory, music instruction, instructions for playing an instrument, etc.).
    (If a large book is selected, two or more students can work as a team.)
  2. Transcription/Edition from a Primary Source (i.e., a musical Score transcribed and edited from a book or manuscript dating from before 1900 [to avoid copyright difficulties]).
  3. Annotated lists concerning various subjects.
    These can include the type of thing listed in the following, or another similar subject:
  4. A Project concerning one composer. This would include a reproduction of the composer's portrait(s), a brief biography, perhaps a list of works. Useful and suitable for a WWW site is a chronology of important events, compositions, publications, positions of employment, locations, etc. in the composer's life.
    (This could be coordinated with another student preparing a list as outlined in the previous item.)
  5. A Project concerning a particular instrument or family of instruments.
  6. A Project concerning a particular type of ensemble.
  7. A Project with a collection of iconographic evidence about a specific topic. These could illustrate certain aspects of performance: memberships or makeup of certain ensembles, use of certain instruments, particular techniques of one instruments (fingerings, playing position, etc.), performing situations, costumes, scenery for staged performances, the buildings themselves, etc.
  8. A chronology covering a certain span of time, possibly limited to a particular place.
  9. A Project concerning a particular city or state, possibly limited to a particular time span or musical style period.
  10. A Project in the form of an Term Paper. The student may use one of the suggested topics, or any other similar topic. Each topic must be approved by the course instructor in advance.
Projects may be written in French. However, if in French, the vocabulary must be totally consistent in that language; i.e., all terminology, names, etc., must be those normally used in French scholarship. A hybrid of English and French terminology will not be accepted.
