Monophony and polyphony in the liturgical music of the 15th and 16th centuries:
coexistence and mutual inspiration in the Central Europe

The 50th International Musicological Colloquium in Brno is devoted to the wider context of the monophonic and polyphonic liturgical repertoire at the dawn of the early modern period. The coexistence of plainchant and polyphony is to be observed on various levels: plainchant still remains the basic type of liturgical music, representing
a substratum for polyphonic music, providing motivic material as well as formal patterns. It represents a contrasting type of musical utterance as well as a platform for improvising polyphony – a technique embedded in the developing theory of counterpoint.
