Music in this time period began to move from a homophonic texture, meaning one melody and harmony, to a polyphonic texture, meaning multiple voices carrying on each of its respective melodies and harmonies. This period was also the beginning of emphasis on the bass line, creating a fuller sound and a richer harmony than its medieval counterpart. Renaissance!
Each melodic line has great rhythmic independence and moves more with a gentle flow than a sharply defined beat. Pitch patterns in Renaissance melodies are easy to sing because the melody usually moves along a scale with few large leaps. Renaissance!
