The Renaissance Mass  Giovanni da Palestrina     Vocabulary:   Genre: The different categories of music  Mass: Recreation of the last supper      Composers influence in ordinary music: ­Composers concentrated on writing music for ordinary services. Ordinary services tend  to have the same few songs with little fluctuation. For example:​ Kyrie, Gloria, Credo,  Sanctus Sanctus, Agnus Dei.    ­Composers tended to stay away from writing music for proper ceremonies, since these  princes would be play way less and would need a different song for each occasion  (Holidays ex. Easter, Christmas).    ­Multiple melodies or harmonies were frowned upon because they were considered a  “distraction”. Instead,​ monotone  ​ or ​mono­rhythms  ​ were encouraged. Having simple,  one lined melodies allowed the message to convey rather than the music itself. No  embellishment, no popular songs and only select “simple” instruments.    1517: Martin Luther landed the protestant reformation    ­ A composer named ​Giovanni da Palestrina  ​ Palestrina decided to make a change and use his  skills for the church music.  ­ Made a mass piece for the Pope “Pope Marchelies Mass”  ­ The piece was ​polyphonic​ yet simple enough to focus on the message  It was also slightly ​homo­rythmic​ (Multiple rhythms within harmony lines)
