RENAISSANCE MUSIC

UNIT 7 DAY 1 - Features of Renaissance Music.

   

Questionnaire (Unit 7 Day 1 - Twenty Fifth Lecture of 3ESO)

Characteristics of Renaissance Music.
    Polyphonic Music performed in small groups, whether vocal or instrumental with soloists and polyphonic instruments.


In the Renaissance we can only find polyphonic Music as composers abandon all monodic Music. 


The distinction between religious and secular music also disappears because there is no stylistic difference whatsoever. 

Spanish Renaissance music (Cancionero de Palacio s.XV-XVI)


Polyphonic Music needs to be played in small groups, whether vocal or instrumental, with soloists and polyphonic instruments.

This composition by Festa (16th Century) has all the vocal parts divided like they were partitas.

Leading composers of the Renaissance.

In this period, for example, the musician studying in Flanders (Netherlands) later works for almost all European courts, so that the compositional techniques expand creating an international style and being the cause of the expansion of schools such as the Italian or the Spanish. 

The musicians played the role of ambassadors of nobles and patrons, as it was an honor for the composer's patron that this musician wrote a masterpiece in a foreign court.
