Calls Sixteenth Century Te Golden
Age of Polpioiii Music
"The sixteenth century was for Eng-
land the golden age of music as well
as for history and literature," de-
clared the Rev. Edmund Horace Fel-~
lowes yesterday afternoon during the
first of his series of lectures on Eng-
lish music of the Elizabethan and Ja-
cobean periods. Canon Fellowes, who
is in charge of the choir at St.
George's chapel, Windsor castle, Lon-
don, has been procured by the Uni-
versity officials to deliver two of his
series of three lectures here in order
to present to the students of English
literature and the history of music'
the importance played by the period
in which the madrigal and its re-
lated forms were developed. He will
give the second lecture at 4:15 o'clock
this afternoon in Natural Science au-
Yesterday's lecture dealt with the
period before Bach and Handel, during
which so much of the English military
and literary triumph took place. Canon
Fellowes states that not only did mu-
sical atmosphere exist at that time,
but that the existence has not been
surpassed from the point of thorough-
ness and quality at any time since

nnMusical Education Necessary
"A musical education was consider-
ed not a mere asset, but a necessity*
in the society of the day," he contin-
ued. "There was no such thing as a
concert room in the sixteenth cen-
tury, for the music was eithe: of the
church or of the home. In the houses
of the period there were large dining
rooms in which many people would
t gather for supper. Afterwards there
would be singing as the customary
procedure. Song-books were passed
out, containing only the one part or
voice, and those present were expect-
ed to sing the parts at sight.
"Were thisthe case here or in Eng-
land at the present day," Canon Fel-
lowes declared, "we should shortly
produce composers of some note-and
in a fairly large quantity."
The Anglican churchman described
at length the derivation of the term
madrigal, and 'told how it was lost
sight of for a long time through the
fact that the church music crowded
out the home or table type. lie ideni -
Lied the madrigal proper and the bal-
lad as two distinct forms, and stated
that in the latter a sort of dancing
seemed to predominate, although the
two were often run together.
Modern Mluse Chiefly TLIie
"Modern music is heard by auditors
only in the beating of the time," he
said in comparison. "The madrigal
considering the circumstances that
were present at its development, has
what may be described as melodic in-
terest. 'Every part of it contributes
to the whole. In this respect the most
interesting historical fact is that mad-
rigals were never printed in the
score. A writer would save up his
songs until he had as many as 20 or
30, and would then send them to the
publisher in a collection. These would
then be printed in the parts only,
and without bars.
"Polyphonic music composition came
to an end early in the seventh cen-
tury, because all of its devices were
played out. However, the principles
of free and varying music are be-

ginning to be revived by modern writ-
ers. I consider this a most hopeful
promise, The singing of madrigals as
it was done in, the 16th century had
to be dropped if for no other reason
than, that the intelligence of posteri-
ty would not have been equal to its

ture with selections of records made
by the English singers, which organi-
