Medieval Music Music of the Middle Ages made great advancements through the centuries, which many are still evident today. The Christian Church effected the development of music greatly during the middle ages. The first major type of music of this time was chanting. “The early Christians inherited the Jewish chants of synagogues.”(Bishop-324) Chants didn’t have constant rhythm, every note was about the same length. They had only one melody ,usually in the major key of C. All the singers sang th

Heroic but hardly admirable how accurate is this assessment of Meursau
“Heroic but hardly admirable”, how accurate is this assessment of Meursault in “The Outsider” When Meursault is described to us in the early stages of the novel we see that he does not obey society’s codes therefore is it fair for us to assess him using societies interpretation of “heroic”? If we are to judge him by them then we are given ample examples throughout the novel of his having no compassion or even of his thinking of the consequences of his actions, hardly heroic, but the converse is

For my word search on babble I found some very interesting information
For my word search on babble, I found some very interesting information about the word and also ran into some difficulty. I think the biggest dilemma I encountered was the fact that my word was not listed in the Reader’s Guide to Periodical Literature. I visited three different locations for this specific book to locate my word in. I went to the Bay View library, the East Providence Weaver library, and the Providence Public library. However, my word was not listed in any of the books. I think t

Greek Life
Greek Life It was a fine day, as I sat outside of my house on some of the rolling hills in Athens. I sat and pondered of worldly things, when I finally came to thinking of my own life. I was almost as inquisitive about my life as a complete stranger would be. It is a relatively simple life where most common men, as for me not being rich or poor, are usually quite modest, and most often times are made of stone, clay, and wood. My house is a mid-size house consisting of seven rooms. I have a kitch

He winds his way down into the underworld to reach the banks of the river Acheron where he meets the ferryman Charon. He takes a coin from his mouth to pay the toll across. On the opposite bank he is greeted by a Maenad or perhaps Bacchus himself who offers him a kylix of wine. Drinking deep, the man is transformed and resurrected from death to a higher plane. Instead of living a miserable dream in the underworld

“There are few certainties about the percussion family. No one can say how many instruments it contains; few have agreed on playing techniques; and few could name one orchestral piece specifically written with percussion in mind. However, one thing is certain, percussion has been shown over time that it is not merely a matter of beating out rhythm (“History of Percussion” 1). The family of percussion instruments is the first musical instrumentation introduced to the world. To this date there ar
The Romantic Era
The Romantic Era
The Romantic Era (1850 - 1920 C.E.) The Romantic era was a period of great change and emancipation. While the Classical era had strict laws of balance and restraint, the Romantic era moved away from that by allowing artistic freedom, experimentation, and creativity. The music of this time period was very expressive, and melody became the dominant feature. Composers even used this expressive means to display nationalism . This became a driving force in the late Romantic period, as composers used
