The Medieval Period: Music History, Composers and Pieces

The Middle Ages (Medieval) period in music was an interesting time. Western Music as we know it was born in this time period, which ranged from about the 5th to 15th century.

Music from this era started off with a capella chants, and eventually evolved into primitive forms of sheet music notation and harmonies. You can learn all about that in our “Music of the Middle Ages” videos!
