About this playlist

Philippe de Vitry heralded the ‘ars nova’ style of the late medieval period in a famous treatise he supposedly published around 1322. ‘Ars nova’ literally means ‘new art’, and it saw great developments in secular music as well as a new rhythmic complexity and emphasis on expressiveness.
