The Déploration as Musical Idea

Hallowell, Sean

Hitherto unidentified as such, the déploration as musical idea forms the subject of this study. With a canon of thirty works spanning the late-fourteenth to the late-sixteenth centuries, the déploration tradition provides the historian with unique insight on composerly self-understanding during this era. Long mischaracterized as a mode of individual lament, the déploration may be more accurately defined as a mode of communal commemoration.
