  4. 4. Giovanni Palestrina<br />Giovanni Palestrina was one the Renaissance period&apos;s most important composers.  <br />He was Italian.   He wrote mostly religious works.  <br />He is considered one of the great masters of Renaissance music.  He wrote motets, madrigals, and masses.<br />http://www.empire.k12.ca.us/capistrano/Mike/capmusic/renaissance/renaissa.htm#A%20Capella:%20The%20Golden%20Age%20of%20Singing<br />
  5. 5. Musical Mass<br />The musical mass was an important part of the Catholic Church&apos;s religious service. Each part of the celebration would have a different musical number.  The mass would be sung in Latin.  Here is the order in which the music would be performed: <br />Kyrie means God.  This is the first piece in a musical mass.   <br />Gloria means Glory and follows the Kyrie. <br />Credo means Creed of Belief.  It follows the Gloria. <br />Sanctus means Holy.    <br />Benedicts means Blessed.   <br />DeiAngus Dei means Lamb of God. <br />http://www.empire.k12.ca.us/capistrano/Mike/capmusic/renaissance/renaissa.htm<br />
  6. 6. Dances<br />Dancing was a favorite pastime during the Renaissance.  <br />Educated people were expected to know how to dance.  <br />There were simple dances that were usually danced in chains or circles. <br />There were also more difficult dances that required lots of practice.  <br />Dancing encouraged new forms of instrumental compositions.  Many songs were written just for dancing.<br />http://www.empire.k12.ca.us/capistrano/Mike/capmusic/renaissance/renaissa.htm<br />
