Stylistic transformation in the chansons of Antoine Busnois (France)
Dalton, Dana Lee
Master of Music
The transmission of the majority of Antoine Busnois's chansons into Italian sources suggests the composer may have visited the country and may have assimiliated musically Italiante characteristics into his compositional style. An analysis of the chansons shows that although a slight style change does occur in the chansons disseminated into Italian sources, this change is not necessarily Italiante in nature.
