For citizens of Basel, the Renaissance was also a period of music. Music was (and is) an essential part of cultural life. They sang Parisian chansons, played Polish lute songs or collected musical instruments. The exhibition shows musical objects and manuscripts from the musical experience in this city of humanists, publishers and scholars. The exhibition is organized in collaboration with the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis, the Department of Musicology of the University of Basel and the University Library of Basel.
