Music in Renaissance Ferrara 1400–1505

Although the cathedral lagged behind the court chapel as a focus of polyphonic practice, some new evidence has emerged that sharpens the perspective on the two institutions. One such piece of evidence is a set of small polyphonic fragments; another is formed by new biographical data on the music theorist, Ugolino di Orvieto, who was a member of the cathedral hierarchy during the years of Leonello’s education and rule. The coexistence in Ferrara of various diverse categories and styles of musical expression presents no more bewildering a pattern of diversity than do the flatly opposed contemporary intellectual approaches of a scholastic commentator like Ugolino and a humanist teacher like Guarino. Their divergent perceptions of learning and teaching form polar extremes.

Keywords:   Ferrarese court culture, Ugolino di Orvieto, scholastic music, humanistic music, Guarino
