Homework Assignment #2: Mono-, Poly-, and Homophonic Textures
This is our first exercise that is based around a listening skill, as we try to recognize different textures in music. This concept is covered in the class two notes. We have a free practice exercise that is not graded and can be repeated as many times as you like. Then, once you feel ready you can try Exercise 2 for a grade. In the "regular" Tues-Thurs sections it is due before Class 5 for full credit.
Our first quiz date
Also, quiz one will on Tuesday, Sept 19.
Assignment #3: Quiz One Preview is now live, featuring real multiple-choice questions that may appear on the quiz. Due before Class 7 (the day of the quiz.)
Here are the complete playlists:
Youtube Playlist for Phones (Medieval + Renaissance)
Please read pp. 68-76 in the eighth edition, or pp. 74-81 in the seventh on Renaissance sacred music.
One last Medieval piece
Guillaume de Machaut: Messe de Nostre Dame -- I. Kyrie
We begin this class by looking at one last piece by Machaut. This shows how he brought sacred polyphonic music to new heights.
The Renaissance and Sacred Music
Josquin Ave Maria
This is the recording Craig Wright chose for our textbook, so you should be able to follow along with his timed notes on pp. 70-71 eighth edition, 77-78 seventh.
In class we looked at this interesting animated version from youtube. It is particularly useful for seeing the imitation between voices.
Palestrina's Pope Marcellus Mass: II. Gloria
OK, here's where the book situation gets complicated. Craig Wright discusses the Pope Marcellus Mass in general in both editions, pp. 74-76 eighth edition and pp. 78-81 seventh. However, in the new edition he changed his mind as to which parts he would discuss in detail.
Our pick for the listening list, the second movement ("Gloria") is discussed in the seventh edition. See Wright's notes pp. 80-81. We are going to use a slightly different recording, so the timings in Wright's notes may not match.
Here is a scan of Wright's discussion in the 7th edition in case you want to see what he says or read the translation of the words.
