Handel's Oratorio: Messiah

- Handel’s Messiah No. 9 (measure 107-138) Handel’s Messiah is a Baroque-era, awe-inspiring composition; rich with history, profound in meaning, and intensely intimidating when asked to dig deep into its inner workings. When first receiving this assignment, I was overwhelmed by what I was being asked to do. But after analyzing and critiquing the melody, adding figured bass symbols, macro-analyzing the chords, adding roman numerals, and commenting on the voice leading in chords moving in root position, I feel as if I have only scratched the surface of all Handel put into the Messiah....   [tags: Classical music analysis]

The Importance of Function Over Form in the Classical Concerto

- In the 18th century, the concerto was transformed into a viable instrumental genre to both demonstrate virtuosity as well as a cohesive character that embodied the natural. Though the series of changes from the Baroque concerto grosso to the Classical concerto were gradual and cannot be attributed to a single composer, the Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor K. 466 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is a skillful representation of the genre in that era. Of particular interest in this concerto is the treatment of sonata form in the first movement....   [tags: Classical Music]

In this paper I will argue that relying solely on standardized testing for student placement damages education....   [tags: achievement, bias, education ]

- The earliest known measurement from the earth to sun was in 200 B.C. Aristarchus of Samos, a man of astronomy and Mathematics, made this discovery. He believed the Earth revolved around the Sun. Aristarchus of Samos used what is known today as right-angle trigonometry. By connecting Earth to Moon, Moon to Sun, and Sun to Earth, one forms a right triangle as shown below. The measure of angle “a” is 90°; an observer on Earth can then measure the angle measure of “b”. Then for one to find the distance between Earth and Sun simply find the sine of angle “c.” Aritarchus of Samos would have expressed this a little differently for the sole fact of modern Trigonometry had not yet been discovered....   [tags: essays research papers]
