Back to the roots again - a timeline of "Old Composers"

With my next post featuring Oswald von Wolkenstein, I will return to the beginning of European artistic music, and afterwards follow the timeline in roughly chronological order (Ars Nova, Renaissance, Barocco, ecc.). Be prepared to hear a lot of polyphonic music in the next weeks (masses, motets, chansons, lais).

Nevertheless, every forth post will be out of the order and a piece of "normal" chamber music (f.e. Bachs Goldberg Variations, if you accept the version for string trio as "normal" chamber music).
