1 15 th – 17 th century

2   What is an interval?  What is Fauxbourdon?  What is a key?  Why didn’t they call stacked intervals “chords” in the Renaissance period?  What is the difference between monophony and homophony?  What is polyphony? REVIEW:

3  Sacred Secular Song Types MassMotet Madrigal Chanson Frottola Strictly in Latin, music as part of church service Religious poetry of sorts, combined both sacred and secular styles Renaissance “folk songs,” a wide variety of styles and purposes, all very expressive in poetry and music

4   Motet : Lamentatio Sanctae Matris Ecclesiae Constantinopolitanae Language: Vernacular French = Secular! Words: Metaphor of mother with God’s son = Sacred! Topic: Lament for Constantinople (Christian war story) = both! Musical Content: Instrument, polyphonic/counterpoint = Secular  Kyrie : L'homme armé Language: Latin = Sacred Musical Content: Original melody is French Folk song = Secular! Cantus Firmus melody and strict harmonies = Sacred! Dufay Examples Merging Sacred and Secular

5   Johannes Ockeghem ( ): Franco-Flemish School  Sacred: (Kyrie) Missa Prolationum (Progressive Canon)  Secular: Prenez Sur Moi (Imitative Chanson, three voices)  Lorenzo De’ Medici ( ): Italian politician  Secular: Street-performed carnival songs: Sian Galanti De Valenza  Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina ( ): Roman School  Sacred: Sicut Cervus (four-voice imitative motet) Harmonies created with polyphony Different Styles Similar Styles – Different School After Dufay:

6  Sacred  Used in church (mass)  In Latin (or strictly religious-themed words)  Structured function: Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus Dei  Still held most power, money, and educational resources Secular  Used in courts, streets, ceremonies, festivals…  In Vernacular  (The language of the people in the area)  Varied function and meaning  Based on poetry or expressing emotion  Text-painting! Let’s Review!

7   Step 1: Pick one of your favorite school-appropriate songs. (It should have a catchy melody, easy to sing)  Step 2: Get approved by Miss Lee – she’ll help you find “do” and work out solfege notes  Step 3: Use solfege to put the melody into the key of C (easiest key to write music in)  Step 4: Make your song into Renaissance music using Fauxbourdon or imitative polyphony, or both! EXAMPLE: “Dime” by Cake Renaissance Song Project!
