|Class 4||Wednesday, September 09|
This class is all about secular music, which was intended for entertainment rather than religious worship.
Assignment #7 is really somewhat hefty - I'd say if you do it carefully it could take 30 minutes. Then Assignment #8 is more like the usual 10-15 minute thing we are used to.
Assignment #7: Medieval Instruments
First, please watch our online material on Medieval and Renaissance instruments.
Then, Exercise #7 asks you eighteen questions about all of it.
This assignment is due on the day of Class 7 (Mon, Sept 21).
Assignment #8: Minstrels vs. Troubadours
First, look at our online material about minstrels and troubadours.
Then, Exercise #8 asks you seven questions about it.
This one is also due on the day of Class 7 (Mon, Sept 21).
Our first real due date is coming up. Time to get crackin', all ye procrastinators.
