I like novelty in the music I listen to. Every holiday season, the same songs are played over and over, covered repeatedly but sounding nearly the same. I can appreciate some covers that break the mold, such as Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s holiday rock opera. Yet, the vast majority of holiday music just seems too commercialized and the substance of the original song just seems lost. There are good ways to cover music, such as an artist performing one of their favorite songs, or a song that really inspires them.

But, obviously due to the sound, it's not going to be said that it is the same kind of music as say Schonberg's music (or should I Say Poem), which was created just a mere two years later, on the eve of world war one. In the end, both of these time periods are known for some very, very popular work. With some that are even remembered as the best work's ever. Some that have brought people of little exposure in the music world to household names, such as Stravinsky's piece.

When church lost power and control, music moved to the courts. Artists and musicians had more freedom and individualism to create music of their choice. During Renaissance era music sounds had smooth, imitative and polyphonic style. Renaissance music was church music or sacred music and secular music or non church music. Sacred music was still popular and it consisted of motet, mass, madrigal and laude genres.
Figaro returns the theme to F major as the lovers sing along with him. Ironically, the trio sing of escaping quickly and quietly, they fail to retreat successfully due to the number of forte repetitions and transitions Rossini composed. Much of the comedy in Barbiere comes from Rossini's clever adaptation of musical forms and orchestration. His trademark crescendo orchestrations, masterful text setting, and development of aria forms allowed Rossini's work to flourish throughout Europe. The music and characteristic of his operas influenced a generation of Romanticists, and established a permanent home for Rossini in the history of opera.
'Carol' is a chant which a group of people sing Christmas and Christian songs, so this is meant to be a time where people have fun and are united with family and friends. Ebenezer Scrooge is the major character, the miserly owner of a London counting-house, a nineteenth century term for an accountant's office, in the story, A Christmas Carol written by Charles Dickens. Charles Dickens born February 7th 1812 – 9th June 1870 is a highly remarkable novelist who had a vision to change wealthy people’s scrutiny on the underprivileged and by fulfilling the dream he writes novels. Furthermore, I think that Dickens wrote about poverty as he had experiences this awful incident in his upbringings. A Christmas Carol like many of Dickens' novels is set mainly in London sometime in the middle of the 19th century.

It would be an exciting time to see the growth of madrigal. Each composer kept increasing the number of singers in their songs. This is not entirely true because there were so many composers, but it feels that way with all the main composers at the time. Like other composers, Cipriano de Rore’s work influenced many other composers.
This paper will discuss how Venetian school and its composers influenced the music of baroque era. The baroque period emerged after composers rebelled against musical styles that were common during high renaissance. The renaissance is thought to be from 1420 to 1600 and it was a time of remarkable cultural awakening in arts and sciences throughout Europe (Kamien, 2010). This was also a time of increased humanism, a condition that led to the break of sacred music from the boundaries of the church for the first time (Sherrane, 2012). Additionally, a group of composers trained in the Netherlands mastered the art of polyphony from where they played sacred music (Sherrane, 2012).
A type popular music began to erupt and was sung all over Europe by the troubadours and trouvères of France. The troubadours and trouvères played mainly lutes (a primitive guitar) and sung songs, which everyday people could appreciate and identify with. And it was during the middle Ages that western culture saw the arrival of the first great name in music, Guillaume de Machaut. De Machaut polyphonic style did not catch with many during the middle ages, but would later influence a flood of composers during the Renaissance. The Renaissance The Renaissance began in the year 1420 and ended in the year 1600.
In November 2009, Jim Carrey, a very well known actor, had done the voiceover for an animated version of A Christmas Carol. Famous actors’ involvement in adaptations of A Christmas Carol shows that it is still very popular. It is due to writers such as Dickens, as well as other socialists such as J.B Priestly and H.G Wells, that inequality has eroded in the 21st century. Inequality remains in the 21st century yet it is evident that literature has reduced it and perhaps if other modern authors had the same goal in mind as Dickens, inequality could be diminished.
