An examination of the relationship between music, sound more broadly, and the courts, churches, and concert halls of eighteenth-century European cities.

Students also learn to analyze and interpret the sounds of eighteenth-century European cities, gaining critical listening skills that they learn to apply their study of the sounds beyond the eighteenth-century European city.
