Medieval Music in the Netherlands

 

Study of ancient and medieval music in the Netherlands goes back to the late 1930s. For the most part study projects were initiated by academics from the universities of Amsterdam and Utrecht (Departments of Musicology). It has led to quite a number of  book publications [you need ADOBE READER to open the file].

Present Dutch study into Ancient Music and Medieval Music History is largely in the hands of individuals and is only partially institutionalized. Present fields of study are:
