There were different aspects of music and dance and all often reflected the Elizabethan’s way of life. The Elizabethan people thought of music as being powerful and wonderful (“William”), and according to Linda Alchin’s website, music was important in Elizabethan life. To the Elizabethan people, music was a form of entertainment (“Music”). Everyone loved music, and to them, music allowed creative expression (Mahabal). Types of Elizabethan music included court, church, town, street, theater, consort, and house music.
The philosophy of the song shows that there can be many different hallelujah 's. They all are calls to different emotions, each hallelujah has a unique idea and message. The story of “Hallelujah” is one of beauty, irony, and melancholy allusions. Cohen 's song begins with a reference to the Bible 's King David, mentioning the heroic harpist 's "secret chord”. The story states, “And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that David took a harp, and played with his hand: so Saul was refreshed, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him” (1 Samuel 16:23).
Even the fairy world is incorporated in this theme. Oberon and Titania, the fairy king and queen, love each other and each dream of obtaining and loving a human boy found by Titania. Throughout the play, the prevalence of true love and the use of magic work to place the idea of love and dreams of love in perspective for the
It began slowly and included a few lines sung by Andrew Wall and Hayo Eiben, but the tempo quickly increased with a sound mimicking the crack of a whip and jingle bells provided by high school percussionists Cassie Gillmore and Anna Loes. The song was written for two parts and is noted as having parts for soprano, alto and bass. It was written in 1996, which is the 20th century musical era. It was composed by Nancy Price, who has a bachelor of music and master of music degree in music education. She is widely recognized for being a choral clinician and festival conductor.
The musical Seussical the Musical was a jovial experience that made many including me reminiscence the times when we read Dr. Suess. The creative sets, colorful costumes, and the acting skills brought Dr. Seuss 's books alive. I truly enjoyed the aspect of joining Dr. Seuss books and plots, like Gertrude McFuzz to create one plot and the inclusion of The Cat in the Hat in many of the scenes. The musical captured the ambience of the books, specifically Horton Hears A Who. The dedication of those in the musical shined from their eminent acting skills and their ability to display the character they portrayed.

Lastly, Shakespeare uses Romeo and Juliet to show true love. Nurse shows parental love to Juliet throughout the play. Despite being a servant to the Capulet household, she has a role equivalent to that of Juliet’s mothers and regards Juliet as her own. Even with the fact that Nurse is not the birth mother of Juliet, she still treats Juliet like a daughter. Nurse cares about Juliet and wants her to be happy and find success.” Go, girl, seek happy nights to happy days” (1.3.106).
The contour of the verses in I Dreamed a Dream shapes the melody of the verses with its use of step wise and ascending patterns. The bridge features an arpeggiated style which descends through the phase. This works to set up for and lead into the next verse adding a smoother flow to the overall piece. In the recitative section at the beginning of the piece, the melody of the long introduction uses only one pitch (Eb) with the exception of the third last word ( '… it all went wrong,") where instead the G above the original Eb is sung, thereby placing emphasis on the word, its meaning and the implication it makes on the statement and mood of the piece. Whilst the score features repeated rhythmic patterns, there is also a large amount of repetition of melodic patterns and phrases.
This crisis of age is eased through his utilization of the memories he has created at places like Tintern Abbey. He states their benefits, claiming "I have owed to them, / In hours of weariness, sensations sweet, / Felt in the blood, and felt along the heart" (27-29). He has called upon these memories to bring "tranquil restoration" (31) which helps him through life, becoming a means of rejuvenation. Wordsworth calls upon these memories again and again as he shows his habitual use of memory: "How often has my spirit turned to thee!"
His influences are blended with Gerry Mulligan’s way, and this combination is fueled by penetrating improvisations of Luis Bonilla on trombone and Brian Landrus on baritone sax. Schaphorst also takes the opportunity to display his skills on trumpet in “Global Sweet”, a somewhat spiritual chant enveloped in glamour. The album couldn’t have had a better ending with “Descent”, an impulsively groovy (impeccable foundation by Jay Anderson and Matt Wilson) and vividly swinging piece that shakes us with its emotional robustness. The tune features the irresistible pianist Uri Caine, who becomes lyrical whenever accompanying and effusive when improvising, and also Ralph Alessi whose melodic movements and rhythmic contortions are both impressive and opportune. Schaphorst’s genius compositions come from the heart and the thankfulness toward the talents who have been sharing music with him is translated into honest tributes and magical reciprocation.
By contrast, Strayhorn was classically trained and well-versed in classical harmony and repertoire by the time he met Ellington. For Strayhorn, melodic and harmonic development was most important. His famous song “Lush life” illustrated the composer’s early style. The whole song had a quite slow tempo, and vocal part was exaggerated. The chord progression of the piano accompanied the vocal which drifted smoothly up and down with the change of emotion, while the percussion and string sections were presented softly in the background.

To overcome this difficulty, I thought about what chords were both in C minor and G major. So, the chord I used was D major which modulated the piece nicely into G major as it created an imperfect cadence. My composition successfully exploits the Areas of Study I have chosen. I have included sequences in bar 9 and 11 and ornamentation in bar 24. The melody of the piece is conjunct and it follows the notes of the G major scale.
