New edition and French translation under the direction of Olivier TRACHIER
In the middle of the XVIth century Magdeburg's cantor Gallus Dressler, successor of Martin Agricola, fixes with a remarkable clarity the usual modal theory of polyphonists. Faced with the innovation advocated by the great Swiss theorist Glarean (twelve modes renewed of Antique), he delivers an eloquent testimony of the basic education given to young singers towards 1560.
The pedagogical qualities of the book - very practical, admirably ordered and abounding in examples - makes it necessary to spread to any musician wanting to learn about the practice mode. Let us add that our computer engraving, particularly elaborate, respects the original written form and makes reading quite attractive.
