Macaronic Composition







Macaronic Composition refers to the mixing of notational systems, sometimes whole passages of more than one musical language, most often for comic or satiric effect though sometimes (and more recently) with serious intent.

Strictly speaking, a macaronic composition (as with Macaronic Verse in literature) in its original sense, entails not inserting foreign notational systems but giving notation of the composer’s native tongue the inflectional endings of another musical language.
