Guillame de Machaut, unlike John Dowland, has a well-known composition called Agnus Dei, and it is a prayer for mercy and peace. Machaut created music for the church and was the first to do in a polyphonic approach. Agnus Dei became a staple in the mass ordinary, as it referred to “speaking of christ”. This song was meant to appeal to the mind and not so much the ears, it was a revamp on the Middle Age Gregorian chant.

The author states that, “while less recognizable to our eyes, Shakespeare’s audiences, many of whom were intimately familiar with religious drama and saints’ plays, would have noticed Richard III’s hagiographic tropes, themes, and allegories, as well as recognized the narrative arc and structure as that of a saint’s story” (Pomerleau 73). Here the author is trying to reach the audience using some pathos, and also some logos, to explain why the audiences of Shakespeare’s day understood what he was trying to accomplish with his play. It is certainly understandable that time and place has an effect on how someone will take a story. So according to Pomerleau, the point and goal of Shakespeare in his play on Richard III was not to accurately depict the king, but to make him a necessary evil and a villain for the sake of his anti-hagiography.
Renaissance: This term refers to a period in Italian history, initially considered to have begun in the late 13th Century, where the styles of art and architecture began a transformation from the earlier Gothic or Middle Ages style of architecture, dominated by France, to a more classical representation of the early style or Greco-Roman influences.

Although the song is challenging the dominant religion, it also gave way to the audience reevaluating their everyday life. This redefinition of society, as Rosenthal and Flacks states, can either be as a result of a needed push to change society or a change that is occurring in society. “Get up, Stand up” is just on example of numerous songs that can be applied to the authors main question which is “how music actually serves the various functions that have been claimed for it and to begin to determine how the function and effects of music vary depending on social and historical contexts” (Rosenthal and Flacks
The Protestant Reformation had a massive sway on the visual arts in Northern European art. One of the main changes was that holy imagery was no longer the most significant feature in art. Iconoclasm took over as Protestant reformers encouraged the removal of pious images.
