During the Medieval and Renaissance Periods, the Motet became the most well-developed form of polyphonic vocal music. The motet was created based on the Magnus liber organi (Great Book of Organum) of French composer Leonin (fl. 1169-1201). In organum, a second voice part (the discant clausula) was added above existing Latin chant texts. This later came to be known as “motet,” from the French “mot” (“word”) and the Latin “motetus.” The second voice of the motet was known as the “duplum.”

The myth from the Popol-Vuh demonstrates how the Mayans believed that humans’ existence were created to serve and worship the divine being, God, who created them with inhumane powers from and outside world looking down upon the world he created. A prominent theme throughout this myth is God’s wish to create men that will love and serve him. God claims that, “I need men on earth who will know My names, who will obey Me and love Me; and that will nourish and sustain Me” (Leeming, 61). Because this was stated by the being that was believed to be the creator of this world, the Mayans had the belief that they were created to be on Earth in order to serve God. The other beings before men, such as the men of wood and mud were destroyed by God because they did not remember God or obeyed his wishes; therefore, these beings had no purpose on Earth and were rid of. The Mayan’s belief of having to serve God, which stems from this myth, ignites their worship of God’s existence as an almighty divine being and does what they believe to please Him.
