The book The Venetian Music School (15501610) and the Extensions of the Polychoral Style is the first ever in-depth study, both in Bulgarian musicology and that of the whole southeast region, of the techniques of the Venetian School of 1550. The research work delves into the context of the overall European and Venetian cultures of the age, underscoring its continuity of Byzantine music. Literature of that period is referred to (Le istitutioni harmoniche by Gioseffo Zarlino), as well as contemporary studies of the Renaissance from America, Western and Eastern Europe, including by Bulgarian researchers. Thus the work establishes a standard of research on this field.
Apart from the wide range and agreed terminology, new terms occur in the book, argued through the structural analyses such as inner multi-chorus, musical form of text, nuance antiphon These terms are developed and specified tenets of established views of the period under consideration in the West-European musicology.
Zarlinos term coro spezzato, underlying the study, is presented multi-dimensionally and in-depth in all technical details, referring to both the explored period and to the polychoral music from the seventeenth well until the twentieth century.
The studied cori spezzati extensions to the music by Monteverdi, J.S. Bach, Beethoven, Berlioz and Mahler are helpful and guiding aids in the field of choral interpretation. Knowledge of technical extensions to the predecessors of the Venetian School, the Netherlanders of the fifteenth and the sixteenth century, provides a comprehensive and conclusive panorama of the European sacred music. The book is intended for students, musicians and connoisseurs of the polyphonic music of the Renaissance, understanding of which blazes a trail for spiritual completion.


This books is a sensitive response to the needs and internal trends of contemporary musicology.

The analysis of the extensions of the polychoral style especially in the post-Baroque period is really impressive. I deem it to be a notable achievement
Prof. Veska Tsinandova-Haralampieva, PhD

The book by Iakos Dimitriou shapes a compositional construction of a kind, remindful of the trinity of a three-nave basilica, metaphorically facing and directed respectively in perspective, as a historical and substantive vector over time and space from the medieval period to the Renaissance to our contemporaries
