Not surprisingly music changed dramatically between the years 600 and 1600. Perhaps the two most notable developments are the invention of musical notation and development of polyphony.

The theories of Guido of Arezzo were still being taught in the seventeenth century, and Pythagorean tuning still held sway until Bach's Well Tempered Clavier.
