Byline: The Register-Guard

The University of Oregon School of Music has five concerts scheduled this week.

The Collegium Musicum, an early music ensemble, will play and sing secular works by Guillaume de Machaut at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Collier House, 1170 E. 13th Ave. (at University Street).

A 14th century French poet, Machaut was also a prolific composer. His mastery of earlier forms has led some to call him the last of the trouveres, a class of poet-musicians who flourished in northern France in the 12th and 13th centuries

But his forward-looking innovations in rhythm, harmony and form also set the stage for a century of musical development.
