Abstract

Frottole: Libro secondo, published in 1505 by Ottaviano Petrucci, is a pristine example of northern Italian musical culture. The print is a collection of fity-three frottole—poetry set to music in a specifically Italian conciet—that provides us with a unique glimpse into the socio-economic climate of the High Italian Renaissance through the perspective of popular music. This thesis explores the history and impac frottole had on European musical culture and provides a more specific discussion on the document and complete modern transcription with critical commentary. This comprehensive but concise edition makes sixteenth-century music accessible for modern scholarship and practical use.
