This period began when the Renaissance period of music – a period of music full of choral music and chants – began to change. The Baroque period brought with itself key devices such as variation in musical compositions, the enlargement of standard scales and chords and the process of varying one or more properties within a piece; that are used today. In contrast the renaissance period of music whereby music was often sang, contained simple rhythms and melodic lines and was mostly for the purpose of praise, the Baroque period of music started off the use of distinct melodies and harmonies opposed to the polyphony used in the Renaissance period. This new music was then called “…expansive and dramatic”. Famous composers and performers of this period include Henry Purcell, Arcangelo Corelli, Claudio Monteverdi, Antonio Vivaldi and many others.

Before Bach, music was much duller and not that interesting, there were also no real foundation in the music. After Bach, more musical techniques and varieties like tonal changes were established, the German baroque bow and other instruments played chords were also invented and that made his pieces of music more alluring. 3.

Be-ing in the fan base meant that I got to hear other people’s stories which just convinced me that this band was special – never before had I heard so many people saved by a band. Of course, having watched a lot of live performances and seeing the band preach to the crowd during their concerts, I knew that it was one of their goals to make their fans feel better. But this was the first time I heard the other side of the story and it was over-whelming. Maybe it was not a really long time that I was a fan of the band, considering the fact that only about a year after I first heard a song they split up, but that does not change the fact that they were, and continue to be, my favorite band. Through the years, since first having listened to them, my interest in song analysis grew thanks to this band.

This event did just that for me, if it wasn’t for this assignment I wouldn’t have ever took part in this celebration. One
Throughout the history of mankind, many people have wished for the ability to travel back in time. There are countless historical events that I would want to travel back to, from world wars, incredible inventions and to major sporting events. Everyone would use this opportunity differently, but I would travel back to the early 1900’s to live through the major moments that occurred in the United States. The two world wars have always fascinated me from a very young age, and I always appreciate opportunities to learn more about them. History classes, books, and movies have given me information over the years, but it has never seemed to be enough for me.
The Baroque period was a time full of artistic style, from the music all the way down to their paintings and sculptures. There were many great artists and composers of this period such as Antonio Vivaldi and Henry Purcell. However, the two composers that are compared the most are Bach and Handle. Both were born in 1685 and both became blind before the end of their career. They share a lot of similarities but a multitude of differences in their music.
