RENAISSANCE MUSIC FOR YOUR LISTENING PLEASURE

Okay, y'all might not be too interested in this. Fact is, I'm using my blog to store the listening examples for my high school Music Appreciation Course. That being said, the music is truly phenomenal, and for the more adventurous among you, might be the discovery of a new love. Expand your horizons. Remember, though, it's about the music, not the videos, so close your eyes and hear what my grade 9's are jazzing to this week.


1. Guillaume Dufay *Ave Maris Stella* polyphony from the early part of the Renaissance.


2. Palestrina *Missa Papae Marcelli - Gloria* homophony from the middle Renaissance Era.


3. Thomas Morley *Sing We And Chant It* madrigal from the end of the Renaissance Period.



4. Caccini *Ave Maria* monody from the Transition Period between the Renaissance and the Baroque Era. (performed by countertenor Slava Kagan-Paley)

Beautiful music! A lot of people don't appreciate classical music but I think it's just because they won't take a few minutes to sit down and SHUT UP to hear it!
