Yue Liu 02/13/19 MUS 307 Journal 2 The opera we watched is called Giulio Cesare created by Georg Frideric Handel. For  Handel's opera, it is crucial to grasp the rhythm and weight. Imagine if I was watching the 19th  century opera performance, slowing down the rhythm and increasing the weight will make it  procrastinate, heavy and unpredictable. I wouldn’t have the strength to listen to this three-hour  and 40 minutes long opera.  I noticed that the arias of this period focus on dramatic conflicts and character portrays,  and they are expressed in the melody and the woven language. The characters in Handel's vocal  works have both the expressive power of the drama and the elegance and elegance of the musical language. The singing is restrained and lacks personality, and the strength of the sound is rich

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
