Instrument design
Instrument Design

During the Renaissance, the way instruments were made changed. Some instruments had additions made, others were gotten rid of completely, while still others were invented. This change in the instruments allowed Renaissance composers to use instruments more and actually led to the formation of bands as we know them today.

Greensleeves

American Pie

Alas my love, ye do me wrongto cast me off discurteously:And I have loved you so long,Delighting in your companie.

Greensleeves was all my joyGreensleeves was my delight:Greensleees was my heart of gold,And who but my LadieGreensleeves.

I have been readie at your hand,to grant what ever you would craveI have both waged life and land,your love and good will for to have.

A long, long time ago...I can still rememberHow that music used to make me smile.And I knew if I had my chanceThat I could make those people danceAnd, maybe, they’d be happy for a while.But february made me shiverWith every paper I’d deliver.Bad news on the doorstep;I couldn’t take one more step.

These are examples of secular music, with lyrics from a Renaissance song on the left and lyrics from a modern day song on the right.

Prior to the Renaissance, music was hand written and varied in style depending on the composer. In the Renaissance, a more uniform way of writing music was created, and has been kept to this day, as shown on the next slide.
