What Stylistic Features Make Flow My Tears a Piece of Renaissance Music?

...What stylistic features make Flow My Tears a piece of Renaissance music? Composed in 1596, Flow My Tears is a ‘Lute song’ - a style that emerged during the Renaissance period - typically consisting of a voice (a counter tenor or alto in this case) accompanied by a lute. It could also be accompanied by more than one instrument in what was known as a ‘mixed’ or ‘broken’ consort. This performance uses a bass viol. This can be seen as reminiscent of the development of the bass line in defining the harmonic structure of music that was occurring at the time (assuming even greater significance during the baroque era). The texture is melody and accompaniment, however often with enough separate movement in the parts to be contrapuntal. An example of this is a four-part chord in the lute part which creates five parts with the voice in Bar 1 and playing six notes in Bar 16. This is indicative of the period because much of Renaissance music (including Lute songs) employed both homophony and counterpoint. Counterpoint itself developed strongly throughout the Renaissance and Baroque era, featuring heavily in the works of well known composers of the time such as Orlando Gibbons and William Byrd. The tripartite structure of the song relates to the structure of the stanzas - verses 1 and 2 are sung to the same notes whereas verses 3 and 4 are sung to a different melody as is the 5th verse. Whilst the structure itself is not greatly indicative of the period, the through-composed......

...Classical Indian Music It is undeniable that the music of a people is embedded in their culture and traditions, and so is the Indian classical music. The tones and sounds of the Indian music bear influence from the Hindu religion and their culture. Instrumentation and notation has been quite unique unlike the Western music. Ravi Shankar is among Indian musicians who have revolutionalized the classical Indian music and has won three Grammy Wards. Although Shankar interacted with other artists from other cultures, his music reflects on the Indian musical traditions. The classical Indian music is reputed style of music which even today espouses the aesthetics of the ancient times despite having had influence from other genres of music (Massey & Massey, 1996). The classical music of India is categorized into two; the Hindustani music which is from Northern Indian region and Carnatic music from Southern India. Massey and Massey (1996) argue that a common similarity of the two genres is that they employ one raga per song and the music has heavy improvisation element. Raga is what may be compared to mode or scale in Western music. The difference is evident because Hindustani music has the heavy influence of Persian music as opposed to Carnatic music and vocalist element is emphasized in Carnatic music than in Hindustani music. The Indian music is characteristic of tala which is considered as rhythmic pattern enhanced by drums called the tabla and the accompaniment the stringed......

...The role of music in the film, Snow White and the Seven Dwarf’s, has music throughout the film that is very delightful. The most famous is the song for the dwarf’s, “Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho, It’s Off to Work We Go” and is a very simple tune. Movies that fall into the musical genre have songs sung by the characters that are interwoven into the storyline of the movie. The songs are used to develop the plot of the movie, or further characterize the roles in the movie, whether directly or indirectly. Musicals came about from stage productions put to film. Musical films tend to have a better set of scenery and backdrops than stage productions because of the ability to move location and editing. Musicals differ among moods of the films due to usage of color and light. Musicals can also differ due to the editing performed on the film itself. Time periods also play a key role in the production of musical films. Sound effects also add individuality to musical films. The usage of both types of film is meant to show the transition of “worlds” that Dorothy makes in the beginning and end of the film. Within the film itself, there is a lot of light used, even in scenes that tend to have a darker mood. For instance, when Dorothy arrives in Munchkinland, the scene is extremely bright with both color and light. Everything can be seen. The scenery is almost surreal in nature. The use of light and bright colors is to show the difference between this “dream world” of Oz and the real world which......

...Paper #1: Music World History 4th period Music has been around since the Paleolithic age and has evolved through the years, entertaining almost every person alive. Like said in the thesis statement, music has been around since the Paleolithic age, as time went on music evolved. There are many different variations of music. The variations tend to revolutionize throughout the ages. The different genres of music consist of pop, rock and roll, hip hop, rap, jazz, and many more. Everyone’s taste in music is different, it could depend on their personality or their mood. Music can be used in so many different ways. It is amazing how music is a part of everyone’s life, even though they may not know. I consider music to be the anchor for all entertainment. Music can be played by many different instruments. It can be played by almost anything from pens, guitars, drums, electronic devices, and basically almost every item in the world. Like I said in the previous paragraph; I consider music to be the anchor for all entertainment. I say this because music itself is entertaining just listening too, but music also gives “spice” to things. It’s like a cherry on top of an ice cream sandwich, just think of a movie without music. I don’t think that is even possible for someone to make a movie without music. The first black and white motion pictures were actually just music and well, moving pictures. I think that music helps many people, it can be used as a stress relieve. Music can......

...MUSIC : THE GOOD,THE NICE,THE DOPE! “ Music is the drug of my choice!” is an ink on one of my favourite tees. And heck ,it’s true! Music is a sweet poison which even makes death (boring lectures in reality) tolerable .this poison is available under various labels – rock, blues,metal,pop,RnB etc.For my convenience, I have arranged these cracks under three stacks: the good,the nice & the third the dope. In our hood, we have lot of ‘good drug’ users. They can be distinguished from their over the top hairdo.They have a great affinity for the devil’s number.They have a self – destruct habit of head banging. One shouldn’t bug them because they have a reputation for their temper. But to be honest my rock listening & metalhead homies ,when I heard the crew of Jimmy Page, Robert Plant, John Paul Jones, and John Bonham, I certainly got ‘Led’ out on my ‘stairway to heaven’! We all know the nice drug,pop does lighten up our minds & heighten our spirits & RnB does feed our souls. It gives us a goody-goody feeling. This nice drug have various manufacturers ranging from legends like Madonna,Stevie Wonders,Elton john to newbies like Justin beiber,Lady Gaga,Katy Perry,Taylor Swift etc.Artists like Akon ,Usher,Rihanna have taken RnB to an another level. But when I need to be real high & tight I use my third stack ‘the dope’. When I put on my snares (headphones) & hear hip hop/rap, my heart begins to beat to the sync of the hip hop beats & the words of the MC......

I think that music has some biological connection with our body when we listening it. It has a great power. “Whithout music life would be a mistake.”- sad Friedrich Nietzsche. I tottaly agree.

Some of them gives me the strength, some gives me hope, some of them makes me to accept life as it is. Music is important part of life. It is a form of expression. It has no boundaries and it follows no guidelines. Essentially, to me, music is like air. It has no true shape or definiton, yet we need it to live. Imagine a world without music. All you’re left with is dust. Music is life istelf. As I mentioned, Music is one of the few things, that can help you escape your reality. No mater how bad things are, music has the potential to make you forget all about it. Music can spark any emotion. It can hold memories. It can tell stories. It will always be there. It will never vanish. You can’t touch music, but music can touch you. There are various type of music in the world. For......

...Functions of Music Music therapy Music therapy is a treatment method that involves using music to enhance health. There are many different approaches to music therapy, including creating music, listening to music, and talking about music. Although music therapy is often used to promote mental and emotional health, it may also help improve quality of life for people coping with physical health conditions. . In the 17th century, the scholar Robert Burton's The Anatomy of Melancholy noted that music has an "excellent power ...to expel many other diseases" and he called it "a sovereign remedy against despair and melancholy." What Does Music Therapy Involve? A music therapy session may incorporate a number of different elements, such as making music, writing songs, or passively listening to music. While music therapists often aim to foster the patient's emotional expression, there can be many other different goals in a music therapy session. These goals include relief of stress or anxiety, improvement of mood, and enhancement of quality of life for people dealing with illness. Research shows that patients do not need to have any musical ability to benefit from music therapy. Benefits of Music Therapy Here's a look at some key study findings on the health effects of music therapy: 1) Music Therapy and Depression Music therapy may help some patients fight depression, according to a review published in 2008.

Music has the ability to enhance our emotions and add interest to our lives, so it is little wonder that we are willing to pay to listen to our favourite songs and that the music industry is one of the largest entertainment industries. In contrast, the Internet is a developing tool and resource we have only been familiar with for the past two decades, but now affects the lives of billions. Even though music has been on the Internet for five or so years, it is already recognised as one of the primary reasons for people to get online The distribution of music on the Internet has become extremely simple, and with the advances in audio formats together with increasing Internet speed, it is now possible to download not only songs but entire albums. However the combination of music and the Internet has caused a great controversy. Simplistically, the issue of Internet music distribution concerns three groups of people… the Internet users who download music, the organizations and individuals who distribute music through Internet sites, and lastly the artists and their record companies, record manufactures and music stores. As the Internet users generally argue, Internet music distribution has numerous advantages. Even novice Internet users can now access the virtually any songs ever written in......
