Music 15: Winter 2008 (Session A) Midterm Exam Part I (12 points): You will hear sections of 4 different pieces that we have studied thus far. For each piece, you will be asked to identify the title, composer, period, and genre. Part II (28 points): Four essay questions, each worth7 points, will be chosen from the following set of eight. When responding to these questions, be sure to use the terminology that we have developed in this class. 1. Discuss the motivations behind the development of early Western musical notation and describe the kind of music that it was used for, citing a particular example. Be sure to identify the context in which this music was performed and describe such characteristics as melodic contour, rhythm, and texture. You should supply an approximate date for your example and, if possible, the name of the person who composed it. 2. The concept of “courtly love” was central to the Troubadour songs of the Middle Ages.
