Hello Music Appreciators!
This week, you'll listen to two videos that show some different choral styles. One is Renaissance, one is more of a modern day piece.
The first piece is Ave Maria by Franz Biebl - written in 1964 (also to the right):
The second piece is Sicut Cervus by Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina - Renaissance piece (also to the right):
Listen to each of the pieces. Write one sentence that describes the following in each piece (you should have a paragraph for each piece, with four sentences in each paragraph):
- Texture (monophonic, homophonic, polyphonic) - 20 pts.
- Tempo - 20 pts.
- Meter - 20 pts.
- Use of dynamics (gradual changes? terraced?) - 20 pts.
- Good grammar and spelling, and you refer to each piece by it's name/composer - 20 pts.
Make sure to have accurate information!
Please turn in by Monday, October 26 for full credit.
