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)
