The ten-volume "New Oxford History of Music" represents a complete survey of music from the earliest times until 1960. This third volume covers a period from the introduction of the Ars Nova at the beginning of the 14th century to the full flood of Renaissance music in the mid-16th century. These were years that saw polyphony growing steadily more mature and organic, and keyboard music appearing in recognizably distinct forms. For the first time there emerged named composers with an undisputed corpus of surviving works: Machaut, Landini, Dunstable, Dufay, Ockenghem, Josquin, and many others of lesser fame. Many of the works composed during this period are still regularly peformed today.
