Through this section you can practise various canons oriented from the most elementary examples to the hard ones. We recommend you to follow from topic to topic in order to develop your skills progressively. If you have experience with canons and early music sources, skip the subjects at your will.

Each topic has explanatory lessons which are introduced some aspects of the theory of music from 16h and 17th centuries. A more complete and comprehensible musicological material upon renaissance didactic canons can be found in Historical Background section.
