Das Sacrum Imperium Romanum als höfischer Musikraum
AbstractFor more than thousand years (800–1806) the Holy Roman Empire was the political and culture centre in Europe, dominating not only the space now called middle Europe, but also parts of Italy. Based on a strictly hierarchical feudal system of courts (with the imperial court at the top), which were bound together in a difficult network with changing alliances, the Holy Roman Empire did not change to a »modern« system of state organisation as France or England did at the end of the Middle ages, but exists as feudal based alliance of sovereign states. With the beginning of the 16th century representation as political instrument became more and more important and within courtly arts as poetry, painting and music. Court chapels were founded or reorganized, music became a part of all ceremonies – not only weddings, coronation, but also Reichstage and other imperial events. For musicians this network of courts but also official meetings, weddings and imperial events were important – for changing to other courts, influences of new style, teaching, playing together with musicians of other court chapels etc.
