Identify what musical textures are featured in the music selection.  Identify timings (ex.: 1:38-2:10) on the recording to pinpoint where monophony, polyphony, and homophony occurs.  The dominant texture is polyphony, but the contrast of textures is notable for lending variety and for helping to illustrate the vocal text ("word painting").  Also include your observations about the effectiveness of this music.  Don't forget to comment on the vocal text since it is intimately connected to how the music was composed.  State the word count of your essay (500-600 words).

The madrigal, “As Vesta Was from Latmos Hill Descending” is a madrigal was created in 1601. The madrigal was the most critical class of mainstream music of Italy in the 16th century. A madrigal is defined as a common, single-handed vocal work, which contains up to four to six individual voices. Musically it is signified with an uninhibitedly utilization of the congruity to offer expressiveness to the organization.

The utilization of the suspended disunity at the rhythm amidst the phrases was a development made by him.

This is clear, the impact of the Italian chromatic-ism, despite the fact that there is a powerful urge to stay away from diatonic bases using the dissension. An assortment of wonderful sorts, especially masterful, were created as the madrigals and a large number of them were based on free rhyme plans.

They consist of a free mixture of homophonic and polyphonic segments, influencing them to emerge in the midst of other sort of Renaissance music. Keeping in mind that the end goal is to express the scholarly significance of a sonnet, madrigals would utilize word painting, which is known as a musical motion that shows the importance of a word or a gathering of words. In spite of the fact that word painting is evident in structure of Weelkes, the enthusiastic effect it radiates is nonspecific.

This is distinctive in Aeneas from the Opera Dido’s Lament and Henry Purcell’s Dido of 1689. It is mainly about the ruler of Dido, Carthage, and Dido’s relationship with Aeneas who abandons her to satisfy his set fate.

Dido sings the aria before submitting suicide.

Her singing is assisted by an over and over descending bass line that is representative of death, following a cadence that is like a burial service walk. The Opera in this madrigal creates a quite string emotional influence.

The texture of music is based on Polyphony. This is a specific type of music texture in which there are various voices in melody. In the beginning, there is one voice, however, later, there is another voice that overlaps the song. In this particular madrigal, there is Polyphony at various points as follows;  “She spied” (From 00:16 to 00:19) “A maiden Queen the same ascending” (From 00:20 to 00:40) “To whom Diana’s Darlings” (From 00:59 to 01:04) “Came running down amain” (From 01:05 to 01:25) “Mingling with the shepherds of her train” (from 01:52 to 02:00).

The musical texture in this madrigal also includes the use of Painting.

Painting is defined as pictorializing of words in musical form the written text as an expression of device or as an expressive device.

Following are the examples of painting in this madrigal; “Descending” (For example, descending melodic contour at 00:08) “Ascending” (For example, ascending melodic contour at 00:23) “Running down” (For example, running quavers at 01:05) “Two by two” (For example, two voices at 01:25) “Three by three” (For example, three voices at 01:29) “All alone” (For example, solo soprano voice at 01:43) Long” (For example, basses in augmentation 02:30).

Please revise this assignment entry by 9/5/17  Revisions are not optional when requested.  In the meantime, this assignment will be recorded as incomplete.

Only the last 10 lines of your narrative relate to this assignment.  The previous 20 lines or so are off-topic and, frankly, bewildering.  The subjects (Dido and Aeneas was composed 100 years after "As Vesta Was") and terms you state ("running quavers" - which is not an American descriptor) question your expertise.

Please follow assignment instructions.  There are far more details and distinctions of texture to be revealed for supporting the text.  Rely upon your own observations to attempt this analysis.
