Music of the Renaissance, Baroque, Middle ages
You are going to listen to three (3) different listening selections, listed below.
For each example, I am asking only 2 questions:
1) Is the particular listening example indicative of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, or Baroque period?
2) Give 2 reasons to support your claim.
IMPORTANT: For listening selection #3, listen only to the first 5 min.-12 sec. (1st movement only)
Listening selection #1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cE_7aqtgquo
Listening selection #2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lz0FmmNrTck
Listening selection #3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJbkvmwUMkw
*****LISTEN TO FIRST 5 min. 12 sec. ONLY ****
Use a lot of music vocabulary. I tried doing the first two it just doesn’t sound write to me. I will upload what I wrote for the first two selection I could not figure out the 3 selection this is very time related so please if it can be done on time.
This is what i came up with
Listening selection #1
1) This particular listening example is indicative of the renaissance period
2) Two reasons to support my claim are the fact that the song alternates between triple and duple beat subdivisions, also before the renaissance period
people used to have a basic chant. Another reason to support my claim is the fact that in the song it mentions “oh then they fell a- kissing” this is a pure
renaissance because during the renaissance love and affection wasn’t shamed as it was before, it was a public thing.
Listening selection #2
1) This particular listening example is indicative of the baroque period
2) Two reasons to support my claim are the fact that the lower voices add an unusually free polyphonic musical images like “wash auf” (wake up) and “wo
wo”(where where) and long melisma. Furthermore there were no unvaried dynamics meaning that there weren’t any big contracts and there were a small range of notes
