The Performance and the Influence of Fauxbourdon in Fifteenth Century Music

To consider some practical aspects of the technique of Fauxbourdon.

Fauxbourdon1 s influence on renaissance music will also be examined. Musicological literature dealing with Fauxobourdon will be studied as 15th century music literature not using Fauxbourdon technique.
