10Renaissance Music: 1450-1600

Humanism in Music: Like artists turned to pre-Christian models. Wanted music to have same effect on listener as Greek music had. Knew about Pythagorean views on music as representing order of cosmos with the power to change nature and alter souls. Continuous imitation: lines imitate each other.Cantus firmus: Fixed melody serves as basis for elaborate imitation by other voices.Homophony: Composition with several voices in which one melodic line dominates other musical lines.Word painting; musical gesture reflects meaning of the word being sung.Josquin Desprez, Ave Maria . . . virgo serena 1470sHail Mary, full of grace.The Lord is with you, gentle Virgin.Hail, whose conception, Full of solemn joy,Fills the heaven, the earth,With new rejoicing.Hail, whose birthWas our festival,As our luminous rising lightComing before the true sun.Hail, pious humility,Fertility without a man,Whose annunciationWas our salvation.Hail, true virginity,Unspotted chastity, Whose purification was our cleansing.Hail, famous with allAngelic virtues, Whose assumption wasOur glorification.
