Counter-Reformation Council of Trent (1545-63) - 2 main concerns regarding music 1. rid the liturgy and the music of secular elements 2. make text easier to understand by forbidding dense polyphonic textures “The whole plan of singing […] should be constituted not to give empty pleasure to the ear, but in such a way that the words be clearly understood by all, and thus the hearts of the listeners be drawn to desire of heavenly harmonies, in the contemplation of the joys of the blessed.” Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-94) - never left Rome or its surrounding areas - composed about 105 Masses - Pope Marcellus Mass, Gloria - myth: - declamation —the way words are set to music, in terms of rhythm, accent, etc. - homophony - text: (capital letters indicate homophony) QUI TOLLIS PECCATA MUNDI, MISERERE NOBIS, QUI TOLLIS PECCATA MUNDI, Suscipe DEPRECATIONEM NOSTRAM. QUI SEDES AD DEXTERAM PATRIS, MISERERE NOBIS. QUONIAM TU SOLUS SANCTUS, TU SOLUS DOMINUS, TU SOLUS ALTISSIMUS, JESU CHRISTE, CUM SANCTO SPIRITU, In gloria Dei Patris, Amen.

    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.
