Welcome to the COMPLETE HISTORY OF MUSIC, PART 2!
This class is for anyone who has wondered about the origins of music, how it came to be, and where it came from.
In this course we will look at the world during the renaissance (approximately 1300 - 1600), through the lens of music. This period begins with the church dominating most music, but ends with "the reformation", in which many churches split off from the catholic church, which had a big impact on the music in those churches. We will also look at what was happening outside of the churches musically, including songs, instruments, minstrels, choirs, and more.
In this class, we will cover:
Politics of the world during the renaissance
Europe during the renaissance
The music of Jusquin Desprez
The age of the castrato
New compositional techniques in the renaissance
New tuning systems in the renaissance
The dawn of printed music
