- Chants learned entirely by ear and were supposed to be memorized(Book in Background)
- To do this they developed "squiggles" that indicated if the note was higher or lower than the next
- The only problem with this is it could not be used to teach music only to memorize it
- Guido then developed the modern day note system in order to help teach music faster
- They still had no rythm notation
As music evolved secular music became very popular and with the addition of harmony up to eight people were singing at one time.
Technological advances also led to advances to musical intruments such as the viol, keyboard, and most importantly the organ
Also composers began writing up to 4 different moving lines at once
New composers such as Martin Luther wanted to put a heavy emphasis on the words sung.
Words were now written in understood languages and words were know pronouced in easily to hear ways
Sung in Malisma before.
Monteverdi began to expeariment with chords by adding dissonace, and implementing them in operas.
Used surround sound by having more than one choir around the room (Introduced by Gabrielli)
Created an Opera based on Nero that was highly emotional and conveyed real people in its story
This led the way for high energy and highly emotional music later on.
