Unformatted text preview: MUS 300‐005 Fall, 2010 Music Appreciation Online Instructions for completing Part II Part II is the beginning of our historical survey of Western music. In this part of the course we will cover music from the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Order for studying: 1. Please read Part II (pp. 57‐94) 2. Review and reflect on historical/cultural context (esp. pp. 57‐64) 3. Work on flashcards for Part II www.mhhe.com/kamien7e 4. Work on Multiple Choice for each chapter of Part II www.mhhe.com/kamien7e 5. Go to CONNECT and complete the entire assignment for Part II 6. Review and take Quiz II One of the most important new tools on CONNECT beginning with Part II is the Listening Response form for each listening assignment. Detailed listening guides continue to be provided for each listening assignment, but beginning with the selections in Part II, you will be completing a Listening Response for each listening selection.

More importantly, these Responses ask you to reflect more deeply on what you have heard, beyond just some terms and catagories. Be aware that these Listening Responses will be the most valuable tool I have for tracking problems you may be encountering in the course. So be sure to do them and save them online so I can access them at any time. None of your work on the CONNECT website will be graded, but it WILL form the basis for the graded work on Moodle. You might consider printing out your completed Listening Response for reference as you prepare for Quiz II. You may consult these while you take Quiz II if you like. It is essential that you connect each historical period with the musical selections from that period. Thus, plan to memorize the dates of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance: Middle Ages (450‐1450) Renaissance (1450‐1600) Finally, spend time studying and connecting the introductory material for Part II (pp. 57‐64) with the important musical characteristics, which are summarized very well on pp. 92‐93. It’s important to know why the chant by Hildegard of Bingen, for example, belongs in the Middle Ages, while Weelkes’ madrigal, “As Vesta Was Descending” is definitely a Renaissance selection. ...
