MUSIC 213 Study Guide For Final Examination To be held on Tuesday, December 19, 8:30 – 11:30 AM in Ewell 151 PRELIMINARY NOTES: 1. One of the two required essay questions is given to you (below) in advance so you may prepare for it. For purposes of this question only, you will be expected to prepare entirely on your own (i.e. without recourse to conversation with or help from others).

In the examination, you will not be allowed to refer to any external resources (electronic, printed, written, etc.). Having said this, you are encouraged to practice writing your essay in advance in order to shape and refine your argument. You are also encouraged to study with classmates on all other parts of the exam save on the essay question given below. 2.

This is not a comprehensive examination so the medieval, renaissance and Baroque music will not be covered.) You are responsible not only for those pieces and composers addressed in lecture but also those few that appear in the syllabus but were not addressed in lecture. Be sure at a minimum that you know the correct full name of both composer and piece in each case (incorrect spellings will lose you points) as well as the decade of composition. You should also be able to recognize any of the pieces aurally for purposes of identification (see sections I and II of the exam outline below) and should know enough about each piece to place it in a larger historical framework. In the case of multi-movement pieces, you should be able to name the movement as well (e.g. Claude Debussy, “Clouds” from
