Voicing Cultural Change: A Renaissance Songwriter’s Move from Performance to the Printed Book

This lecture forms a chapter in a book-length project evaluating the Hungarian poet Sebastian Tinodi (c. 1510-1556). Tinodi is unique in Hungarian literary history because his are the earliest extant secular songs composed with melodies. He chronicled the war between Ottoman, Hungarian, and Hapsburg forces. Dr. Dobozy examines artistic production in Tinodi’s multi-ethnic, multi-lingual setting; discerning typical traditional elements in Hungarian songs of the period; and finding evidence of the cultural exchange between Germany and Hungary in print and book production, poetic and musical composition, and musical performance.
