The medieval music is the period prior to the Renaissance,  marking the music of the early Christian church. That's one  of the terms used to describe nearly 1000 years of history  (500-1450) a history that is often hard to understand since  the lack of surviving documents.  In this time, Western Europe was under the rule of hundreds  of feudal lords and kings. Castles dominated the landscape  and entire cities by building a bunch of protective walls.

However, the Roman Empire controlled the Christianity  during the 4th century, which is the beginning of Medieval,  and soon the evangelism (who works for Roman Empire)  spread this religious faith throughout Western Europe from  the center of Roman Empire to as far as west Ireland.  Therefore the Church would be one of the most powerful  medieval institutions, controlling publication of books and  the making of laws. Much of medieval Europe's art and  architecture has a direct connection to the Christian church.  Like the shape of the architecture and the spirit of the music.

so, in this Dark Age, music is also considered extremely holly and inviolable.  And in this era, only medieval music which can be studied is that, which was  written down, and survived. Considered creating musical manuscripts was  very expensive, and due to the expense of parchment, ink, and the huge  amount of time necessary for a people to copy it down, so only wealthy  institutions were able to create manuscripts which have survived to the  present time. These institutions generally included the church and some  institutions that has a connection with church, such as monastery; all of the  sacred music, was also preserved by these institutions. These manuscripts do  not reflect much of the popular music of the time. Because this music only  belong to Church and Christianity. Musicians even put a watermark of crown on the  sheet music to emphasize that only the superior  can have the right to learn and enjoy music.

Medieval pop music was a part of everyday life for the people of this  time period. Music of the middle Ages was especially popular during  times of celebration and festivities.  For example, Music was often played during holidays and special  parties. During birthdays, the music was uplifting. For weddings and  on Valentine's Day, lovers' music was played that was sure to evoke  a romantic atmosphere. The musicians would play buoyant and  cheery music.  On Jan.1, dancers would dance to high-spirit music. It was believed

    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.
