Western music history and musicians 

The 17th "The opening of the Guillaume Dufay Renaissance"

Minami Aso Luna Observatory · Atelier of the Forest Takashi Miyamoto 2017.09.03


Guillaume Duffy (around 1400 - 1474 year 11 month 27 day) is a composer of the Burgundian school which became the beginning of Renaissance music in the 15 century. Like Monteverdi who announced the beginning of baroque music later, and Bach, which included the tide of Renaissance Baroque music in one ocean, became the beginning of a new Renaissance music, It is a giant in the history of Western music which took in music of.


In the end of the 100 year war of Britain and France, the Flemish province of northern France became the window of music from the UK, but at the Court of Burgundy which flourished in East France, the Flemish musicians who were consolidated in Burgundy They gathered and became the center of European music at the time.


Flemish musicians are supplemented with music from the Middle Ages such as the Cathedral chorus, afterwards wearing music that is active in Italy and rejoices the beautiful melody and furthermore attractive triadic music from the UK I also mastered it. And we synthesized it and synthesized it, creating music of a new era.


Among them, Guillaume duffy composes many masses and chanson, including 9 songs' songs, among which the melodic method of polyphonic songs continuing from the medieval times of France, British 3 degrees, 6 new harmony method, Italian distinctive melody book method, etc., and sublimated to the unique music of Duffy.


Mass song "if if my face is blue" was written in the form of circulating masses, but it is a motif of the later era (musical motifs) that aims for musical unity with the same tenor's constant melody Duffy raised it to one complete form with a writing that leads to composing with).


Also, in the completion of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in Florence, which is regarded as the first Renaissance building, Motetus "Youthful Roses" composed by Duffy, has 4 one in accordance with the design ratio of the cathedral building It was an elaborate masterpiece that shows the movement of the voice, it was played in the dedication ceremony of the cathedral, and it became an iconic song justifying the beginning of the Renaissance era.


In both cases, we have pursued not only the use of merely liturgical music but also the things that can not be expressed unless it is beauty and music as music among them.

In this way, Guillaume Duffy will be remembered as the giant who opened the curtain of the Renaissance in the history of music and developed it.
