Discuss the Evolution of Musical notation Throughout the Medieval Period
Before 1450, there was little form of musical notation, instead word-of-mouth transmission of information was what was used, and this was far from reliable. The most common form of music performed was the praising of the Lord by monks in a monastery by means of chant. It was at this point, when music was becoming more of an art form than a means of entertainment, that a form of notation was deemed necessary. European composers were flourishing in numbers and performers of chants were frustrated with not knowing the pitch or rhythm with which to perform their music.
