Formatted Abstract/Summary
As no investigation of Bull's canonic writing has ever been published, Dart's work on Bull offers an important starting point for a full study of Bull's achievements in these works and their context within the domain of plainsong-based counterpoint in the late Renaissance. The present study undertakes only the first steps in this substantial project — it will assess Dart's contributions and then consider methodologies for analyzing Renaissance plainsong canons. Particular attention will be given to investigating how recent advances in the study of Renaissance fuga and modular counterpoint may provide useful tools for analyzing Bull's solutions to specific technical challenges.
