Thread Name: Mediaeval Baebes?
Subject: RE: Mediaeval Baebes?
I once proposed a study entitled "Early Music as a 20th Century Phenomenon and the Changes Therein with Regard to Modernism & Post-Modernism" analysing the various changes of attitude and approach to medieval & early music from when such things first begin to be recorded to Purcell's tercentenary year.

Been done, more or less. See the writings of Richard Taruskin and Joseph Haskell.
