Skip to 0 minutes and 4 seconds It is time to say goodbye, and, of course, many things are left unsaid. But as you will, from now on, look at a clef, a time signature, or even at a single note, with the knowledge of their hundreds of years old history, I hope that this encourages you to discover even more aspects of the history of notation. If you enjoyed our course, please keep on questioning the manuscripts, and perhaps you even dare now, by yourself, to turn ink into sound.

Skip to 0 minutes and 41 seconds Thank you very much for joining us during the last weeks. On behalf of my team, let me say how much we enjoyed designing this course for you. I hope you enjoyed it too, and found it useful. You’ve taken the first steps toward transcribing and reading music from ancient manuscripts. Now, you’re ready to deepen your studies in ancient music, maybe by joining us at Basel sometime in the future.

Saying Goodbye

Thank you for joining our journey through medieval music and its history of notation – as well as for sharing your thoughts with us and the other learners.

We hope to see you again, either on the FutureLearn platform or maybe sometime at the University of Basel.
