This recording thus shows how the very variated forms and sounds of polyphonic music became popular with music lovers in Central Europe at the height of the Middle Ages, not only in aristocratic circles but in monasteries and ecclesiastical communities, among students, and scholary lazmen in city schools and in the universities.
There can be no doubt that the medieval university contributed significantly to the spread of education and culture in the broadest sense of the word. Since the first stage of university education was the Faculty of the seven liberal Arts, one of which was ars musica, we may assume that the universities also helped to propagate the art of music, and indeed guaranteed its progress.
