The special position and force of music in the lives of the men and women of Renaissance Europe is difficult to appreciate fully from our late 20th century vantage point; perhaps we can begin to grasp it only when we consider the prevailing conditions of existence from the late 14th to early 17th centuries. Despite the incredible flourishing of arts, sciences and scholarship, most people's lives remained nasty, brutish and short, beset by war, plague, filth, illiteracy and religious strife. With what fervor must they have seized the - for them, all too rare and precious - joys and consolations of music, both in their worship and in the secular sphere. - Jeffrey Hale and Ilonna Pederson
