This week, you'll listen to two videos that show some different choral styles. One is from the Renaissance period, and the other is more of a modern day piece. In addition, you'll critique your performance in the opera (find your opera at the bottom of the blog).
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) - 15 pts. - Tempo - 15 pts. - Meter - 15 pts. - Use of dynamics (gradual changes? terraced?) - 15 pts.
- Good grammar and spelling, and you refer to each piece by it's name/composer - 20 pts.
- A third paragraph should critique your performance in the musical. Be sure to mention specific things that you could improve on - 20 pts.
