  • St. Martial• St. Martial: characterized by monophonic tropes and sequences and two-voced compositions in discant and organum styles -• the organum style was especially important to development of polyphony.• Lower part was a portion of chant melody with original latin text set to very slow-moving rhythms while upper part had a different latin text and a freely composed and faster moving rhythm.
  • Notre Dame• Known for a large body of repertoire that was written for liturgical services at Notre Dame in Paris.• Two composers: Léonin 1180-1190 and Pérotin, active around 1200

  • Ars Antiqua• continued with rhythmically active upper parts set to their own text over a slower moving chant based lower part.• upper parts often set to French texts - each part had individual rhythmic characteristics (one faster than the other)
