Renaissance music is music written in Europe during the Renaissance.

Consensus among music historians with notable dissent has been to start the era around 1400, with the end of the medieval era, and to close it around 1600, with the beginning of the Baroque period,

therefore commencing the musical Renaissance about a hundred years after the beginning of the Renaissance as understood in other disciplines.
