CHAPTER 9 Machaut and His Progeny
Machaut’s Songs and Mass; Music at the Papal Court of Avignon; Ars Subtilior
Guillaume de Machaut may not have been the most prestigious French poet and musician of his time. In terms of contemporary renown, he may have been outshone by Philippe de Vitry. He is certainly the most important to us, however, and the most representative, owing to the extraordinary fullness of his legacy, a fullness that stands in stark contrast to the meagerness of Vitry’s. Certain aspects of Machaut’s legacy, moreover, lived on for a century and more in the work of later poets and musicians who definitely saw themselves as his creative heirs.
