(1) Counterpoint is a musical technique involving the simultaneous sounding of separate musical lines. It is especially prominent in Western music. In all eras, writing of counterpoint has been subject to rules, sometimes strict. Counterpoint written before approximately 1600 is usually known as polyphony.

The term comes from the Latin punctus contra punctum ("note against note"). The adjectival form contrapuntal shows this Latin source more transparently.

http://en.freepedia.org/Counterpoint.html

(2) Renaissance - also known as "Il Rinascimento" (in Italian), was an influential cultural movement which brought about a period of scientific revolution and artistic transformation, at the dawn of modern European history. It marks the transitional period between the end of the Middle Ages and the start of the Modern Age. The Renaissance is usually considered to have begun in the 14th century in Italy and the 16th century in northern Europe.

WORDS FROM THE DISCUSSION:

1. MOTET
-In Western music, motet is a word that is applied to a number of highly varied choral musical compositions.

The name comes either from the Latin movere, ("to move") or a Latinized version of Old French mot, "word" or "verbal utterance." The Medieval Latin for "motet" is "motectum", and the Italian mottetto was also used.[1] If from the Latin, the name describes the movement of the different voices against one another.

According to Margaret Bent (1997), "'a piece of music in several parts with words' is as precise a definition of the motet as will serve from the thirteenth to the late sixteenth century and beyond. This is actually very close to one of the earliest descriptions we have, that of the late thirteenth-century theorist Johannes de Grocheio." Grocheio was also one of the first scholars to define a motet. Grocheio believed that the motet was "not intended for the vulgar who do not understand its finer points and derive no pleasure from hearing it: it is meant for educated people and those who look for refinement in art."[1]

2. COUNTERPOINT
In music, counterpoint is the relationship between two or more voices that are independent in contour and rhythm, and interdependent in harmony. It has been most commonly identified in Western music, developing strongly in the Renaissance, and also dominant in much of the common practice period, especially in Baroque music. The term comes from the Latin punctus contra punctum ("point against point").

Madrigal

The term 'madrigal' has two distinct, unconnected meanings: a poetic and musical form of 14th-century Italy, and a 16th- or 17th-century setting of secular verse.

The earliest madrigals of the 14th-century type probably date from the 1320s; the genre was fully developed in the 1340s, with two- or three-line verses (usually with identical music) and a one- or two-line terminating ritornello. All but a few of the 190 surviving examples are for two voices, the rest for three. The style, as seen in the madrigals of Giovanni da Cascia and Jacopo da Bologna, is basically syllabic, with a fairly florid upper part supported by a plainer lower one. After circa 1360 the genre declined and by 1450 it was virtually extinct.

From circa 1530 the term 'madrigal' came to be used for verse owing its style, imagery and even vocabulary to Petrarch. Its seriousness and refinement demanded a kind of musical setting that the contemporary frottola could not provide but which was now developed by Verdelot and others from the French chanson and the motet. Festa's three-voice madrigals were popular but Verdelot's for four to six voices were considered the leading examples until Arcadelt's appeared in 1539. Venice was the main centre for the madrigal; there Willaert's madrigals were widely imitated by Rore and others.

They however brought many changes to the genre, in declamation and harmony. Four to six (usually five) parts became the norm in the 1550s and 1560s, when Palestrina and Lassus contributed to the genre and such great madrigalists as Andrea Gabrieli and Wert began their careers. Late in the century, Rome and the duchies of Ferrara and Mantua became centres of progressive influence; stylistic changes included the absorption of elements of the popular villanella and bold experimentation in chromaticism, word-painting and harmonic and rhythmic contrast which, in the madrigals of Marenzio, Luzzaschi, Gesualdo and Monteverdi, threatened the balanced style of Renaissance polyphony.

The move towards a concerted style is seen in Monteverdi's madrigal output. In his fifth book (1605) he provided a continuo part for the last six pieces, and his seventh book (1619), called Concerto, consists of concerted pieces. He favoured the duet for high voices and continuo; other instrumental parts do not figure consistently. Solo madrigals were also composed in the first quarter of the 17th century by Caccini, d'India and others, after which the genre became virtually indistinguishable from the new Dialogue and Cantata. However, the polyphonic madrigal survived as an archaic genre in occasional works by Alessandro Scarlatti and others.

The rise of the English madrigal in the last decades of the 16th century coincided with the heyday of the English sonnet sequence. In musical style, its terminus was set by the translated Italian madrigals in Yonge's Musica transalpina (1588) and in particular by examples from Marenzio's early period. English composers did not adopt the extravagant styles then in favour in Italy. Morley was the guiding force of the English school. His light, Italianate madrigels and canzonets, some of them transcriptions of Gastoldi and Anerio, inspired Farnaby, Farmer and Bennet in the late 1590s; but it was left to Kirbye, Weelkes and Wilbye to emulate the more serious Italian madrigal for five or six voices in an imaginative and individual style. In 1601, 21 Englishmen contributed to Morley's The Triumphes of Oriana, a collection in praise of Queen Elizabeth I. Thereafter the English madrigal declined; although some charming light pieces and striking serious ones were written, the lute ayre and 'recitative musicke' marked the madrigal as a thing of the past.

Ties between Italy and other European countries encouraged the composition of madrigals in Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark and Poland, but nowhere to the same extent as in England.

2. COUNTERPOINT

The ability, unique to mus., to say two things at once comprehensibly. The term derives from the expression punctus contra punctum, i.e. ‘point against point’ or ‘note against note’. A single ‘part’ or ‘voice’ added to another is called ‘a counterpoint’ to that other, but the more common use of the word is that of the combination of simultaneous parts or vv., each of significance in itself and the whole resulting in a coherent texture. In this sense counterpoint is the same as polyphony.

The art of counterpoint developed gradually from the 9th cent. onwards and reached its highest point at the end of the 16th cent. and beginning of the 17th cent. When, at a later date, attempts were made to formulate rules for students of the art they were based on the practice of that period of culmination. The chief theorist responsible for the formulation of those rules was Fux whose Gradus ad Parnassum of 1725 is a book which still shows its influence in modern textbooks of strict counterpoint (or student's counterpoint), a form of training intended to be preparatory to the practice of free counterpoint (or composer's counterpoint).

In strict counterpoint the processes are studied under 5 heads, the result of an analysis which dissects the practice of the art into 5 species. Following the practice of early composers a cantus firmus (fixed song) is employed, i.e. a short melody, set by the master, against which another melody is to be written by the student— or, it may be, several such melodies. It is usually set out with one note to a measure (bar).

S:The use of strict counterpoint as a method of study has tended to decline, its ‘rules’ being felt to be too rigid.

Regret- is an intelligent (and/or emotional) dislike for personal past acts and behaviors. Regret is often felt when someone feels sadness, shame, embarrassment, depression or guilt after committing an action or actions that the person later wishes that he or she had not done. Regret is distinct from guilt, which is a deeply emotional form of regret — one which may be difficult to comprehend in an objective or conceptual way. In this regard, the concept of regret is subordinate to guilt in terms of its "emotional power." By comparison, shame typically refers to the social (rather than personal) aspect of guilt or (in minor context) regret as imposed by the society or culture (enforcement of ethics, morality), which has substantial bearing in matters of (personal and social) honor.

Regret can describe not only the dislike for an action that has been committed, but also, importantly, regret of inaction. Many people find themselves wishing that they had done something in a past situation.

http://www.wordreference.com/definition/relieve

Humanism is an attitude of thought which gives primary importance to human beings. Its outstanding historical example was Renaissance humanism from the fourteenth to sixteenth centuries, which developed from the rediscovery by European scholars of classical Latin and Greek texts. As a reaction against the religious authoritarianism of Medieval Catholicism, it emphasized human dignity, beauty, and potential, and affected every aspect of culture in Europe, including philosophy, music, and the arts. This humanist emphasis on the value and importance of the individual influenced the Protestant Reformation, and brought about social and political change in Europe.
http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Humanism

The Renaissance, also known as "Rinascimento" (in Italian), was an influential cultural movement that brought about a period of scientific revolution and artistic transformation at the dawn of modern history in Europe. It marks the transitional period between the end of the Middle Ages and the start of the Modern Age. The Renaissance is usually considered to have begun in the fourteenth century in Italy and the sixteenth century in northern Europe. Much of the foundations of liberal humanism were laid during the foundation. For some, this usurps God's rightful place as the author of values and as the director of history. But positively, the contemporary universal outlook, respect for the dignity of all people on which democracy is based, thirst for knowledge and for ways of bettering the human lot, all derive from the Renaissance and from the Enlightenment that followed.

TEARDROP(also referred as tear)

Tears are the liquid product of a process of lacrimation to clean and lubricate the eyes. The word lacrimation (also spelled lachrymation) may also be used in a medical or literary sense to refer to crying. Strong emotions, such as sorrow or elation, may lead to crying. The process of yawning may also result in lacrimation. Although most land mammals have a lacrimation system to keep their eyes moist, humans are the only mammal generally accepted to cry emotional tears.[1][2]

FAIRY TALE

A fairy tale is a fictional story that may feature folkloric characters such as fairies, goblins, elves, trolls, giants, and talking animals, and usually enchantments, often involving a far-fetched sequence of events. In modern-day parlance, the term is also used to describe something blessed with princesses, as in "fairy tale ending" (a happy ending)[1] or "fairy tale romance", though not all fairy tales end happily. Colloquially, a "fairy tale" or "fairy story" can also mean any far-fetched story. Fairy tales mostly attract young children since they easily understand the archetypal characters in the story.

Ranin,Jonathan D. said...

motet
-One of the most important forms of polyphonic music fromc 1250 to 1750. It originated in the 13th century in the practice of Pérotin and his contemporaries at Notre Dame, Paris, of adding words to the upper voice or voices of a Clausula, with a plainchant tenor (‘motet’ derives from the French mot, ‘word’). Sometimes two upper voices had different words. At first Latin texts, mainly concerning the Virgin, were used, but French secular texts became common as the motet shed its connection with church and liturgy. With the notational reforms of the late 13th century, motets with tenors rhythmically similar to the upper voices, or which quote secular songs and dances, became possible. Several motet types flourished in France, but these reduced to one definitive type capable of much variety in the reforms of Philippe de Vitry. Machaut's motets show a preference for French texts and use Isorhythm in the tenor and occasionally the upper parts as well; this became increasingly common in the late 14th century, as did rhythmic refinements. Many large-scale and complex ‘mensuration motets’ are found in English and French sources of the late 14th century and early 15th; Dufay, in his 14 isorhythmic and mensuration motets, achieved a magnificent synthesis of numerically constructed cantus firmus polyphony with the new techniques that hastened its decline.

narcotics
-A drug which diminishes the awareness of sensory impulses, especially pain, by the brain. This action makes narcotics useful therapeutically as analgesics. While they are the most powerful pain-relieving agents available, their use is complicated by a number of undesirable side actions. See also Analgesic.

All of the generally used narcotics are in some way related to opium, and the term opiate is sometimes used interchangeably with the term narcotic. Opium is a gummy exudate obtained from the unripe seed capsules of the opium poppy. Crude opium contains over a dozen alkaloids, all of which have been isolated and identified as to their structural chemistry. From this knowledge chemists have developed a number of synthetic chemical compounds, some of which have important advantages over the naturally occurring alkaloids. Therapeutically important natural alkaloids are morphine, codeine, and papaverine. Among the important synthetic narcotics are meperidine (Demerol), dihydromorphine (Dilaudid), oxymorphone (Numorphan), alphaprodine (Nisentil), anileridine (Leritine), piminodine (Alvodine), levorphanol (Levo-Dromoran), methadone (Dolophine), and phenazocine (Prinadol). See also Alkaloid; Opiates; Poppy.

Nalorphine (Nalline) is a narcotic antagonist and is used in the treatment of acute overdosage from narcotics; it is dangerous to drug addicts. Heroin is a highly addicting narcotic, and is so dangerous in this regard that the drug has been completely banned by both federal and state laws under all circumstances.

polyphony
- In music, polyphony is a texture consisting of two or more independent melodic voices, as opposed to music with just one voice (monophony) or music with one dominant melodic voice accompanied by chords (monody).

Within the context of Western music tradition the term is usually used in reference to music of the late Middle Ages and Renaissance. Baroque forms such as the fugue which might be called polyphonic are usually described instead as contrapuntal. Also, as opposed to the species terminology of counterpoint, polyphony was generally either "pitch-against-pitch" / "point-against-point" or "sustained-pitch" in one part with melismas of varying lengths in another (van der Werf, 1997). In all cases the conception was likely what Margaret Bent (1999) calls "dyadic counterpoint", with each part being written generally against one other part, with all parts modified if needed in the end. This point-against-point conception is opposed to "successive composition", where voices were written in an order with each new voice fitting into the whole so far constructed, which was previously assumed.

OPIUM
a narcotic formed from the latex (i.e., sap) released by lacerating (or "scoring") the immature seed pods of opium poppies (Papaver somniferum). It contains up to 12% morphine, an opiate alkaloid, which is most frequently processed chemically to produce heroin for the illegal drug trade. The resin also includes codeine and non-narcotic alkaloids, such as papaverine, thebaine and noscapine. Meconium historically referred to related, weaker preparations made from other parts of the poppy or different species of poppies. Modern opium production is the culmination of millennia of production, in which the source poppy, methods of extraction and processing, and methods of consumption have become increasingly potent.
SOURCE:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opium

HEROINE
(INN: diacetylmorphine, BAN: diamorphine) is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from morphine, a derivative of the opium poppy. It is the 3,6-diacetyl ester of morphine (hence diacetylmorphine). The white crystalline form is commonly the hydrochloride salt diacetylmorphine hydrochloride, however heroin freebase may also appear as a white powder.

MADRIGAL
Form of vocal chamber music, usually polyphonic and unaccompanied, of the 16th – 17th centuries. It originated and developed in Italy, under the influence of the French chanson and the Italian frottola. Usually written for three to six voices, madrigals came to be sung widely as a social activity by cultivated amateurs, male and female. The texts were almost always about love; most prominent among the poets whose works were set to music are Petrarch, Torquato Tasso, and Battista Guarini. In Italy, Orlande de Lassus, Luca Marenzio, Don Carlo Gesualdo, and Claudio Monteverdi were among the greatest of the madrigalists; Thomas Morley, Thomas Weelkes, and John Wilbye created a distinguished body of English madrigals.

POLYPHONY
Term, derived from the Greek for ‘many-sounding’, used for music in which two or more strands sound simultaneously. It is used in distinction to monophony (‘one-sounding’, for music consisting of a single line) and homophony (‘like-sounding’, implying music in which the melody is accompanied by voices in the same rhythm). In fact, polyphony strictly comprehends homophony, though in common usage there is a distinction between them.


The term ‘polyphonic era’ is generally applied to the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance; the late Renaissance (the time of Palestrina and Lassus) is regarded as the ‘golden age of polyphony’. The kind of polyphony used in the Baroque era, by Bach and Handel, is usually described by the term ‘counterpoint’.

WORDS FROM THE DISCUSSION:

Narcotics -- The term narcotic (ναρκωτικός) is believed to have been coined by the Greek physician Galen to refer to agents that benumb or deaden, causing loss of feeling or paralysis. It is based on the Greek word ναρκωσις (narcosis), the term used by Hippocrates for the process of benumbing or the benumbed state. Galen listed mandrake root, altercus (eclata)[1] seeds, and poppy juice (opium) as the chief examples.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcotic

2. HEROIN -- Heroin (INN: diacetylmorphine, BAN: diamorphine) is a semi-synthetic opioid synthesized from morphine, a derivative of the opium poppy. It is the 3,6-diacetyl ester of morphine (hence diacetylmorphine). The white crystalline form is commonly the hydrochloride salt diacetylmorphine hydrochloride, however heroin freebase may also appear as a white powder.

2. Ars Nova

n.
Ars nova was a stylistic period in music of the Late Middle Ages, centered in France, which encompassed the period roughly from the preparation of the Roman de Fauvel (1310 and 1314) until the death of Machaut (1377). Sometimes the term is used more generally and refers to all European polyphonic music of the 14th century, thereby including such figures as Francesco Landini, who was working in Italy. Occasionally the term "Italian ars nova" is used to denote the music of Landini and his compatriots (see Music of the Trecento for the concurrent musical movement in Italy). The term ars nova means "new art" or "new technique", and was first used in a publication of the same name by Philippe de Vitry (c. 1322).

RAISE A SONG

Song #1:"White Horse" by Taylor Swift

1. Fairy Tale - a fictional story that may feature folkloric characters such as fairies, goblins, elves, trolls, giants, and talking animals, and usually enchantments, often involving a far-fetched sequence of events. In modern-day parlance, the term is also used to describe something blessed with princesses, as in "fairy tale ending" (a happy ending)[1] or "fairy tale romance", though not all fairy tales end happily. Colloquially, a "fairy tale" or "fairy story" can also mean any far-fetched story. Fairy tales commonly attract young children since they easily understand the archetypal characters in the story.

2. Naive - french loanword (adjective, form of naïf) indicating having or showing a lack of experience, understanding or sophistication. It can also be spelled naive. The noun form can be written naivety, naïvety, naïveté, naïvete, or naiveté.

Song #2: "No Boundaries" by Kris Allen

1. Boundary - may refer to:

in mathematics:
o A Boundary is the closure minus the interior of a subset of a topological space
o The conditions of a boundary value problem in Mathematics
o Boundary, an edge in the topology of manifolds, as in the case of a 'manifold with boundary'
o Boundary (thermodynamic), the edge of a thermodynamic system across which heat, mass, or work can flow

in other fields:
o Boundaries in landscape history, the divide between areas of differing land use
o Boundaries (real estate), the legal boundary between units of real property
o Boundaries (film), a 1997 movie starring Playboy 'playmate' Kathy Shower
o Boundaries (television), a 2008 television series.
o Boundary critique a concept about the meaning and validity of propositions.
o Boundary Line


2. Hurricane - is a storm system characterized by a large low-pressure center and numerous thunderstorms that produce strong winds and heavy rain. Tropical cyclones feed on heat released when moist air rises, resulting in condensation of water vapor contained in the moist air. They are fueled by a different heat mechanism than other cyclonic windstorms such as nor'easters, European windstorms, and polar lows, leading to their classification as "warm core" storm systems. Tropical cyclones originate in the doldrums near the equator, about 10° away from it.

WALK WITH ME
Stairway, staircase, stairwell, flight of stairs or simply stairs are names for a construction designed to bridge a large vertical distance by dividing it into smaller vertical distances, called steps. Stairways may be straight, round, or may consist of two or more straight pieces connected at angles.

TOUCH MY HAND
A flashlight (also called a torch) is a portable electric spotlight which emits light from a small incandescent lightbulb, or from one or more light-emitting diodes (LEDs). The light source is mounted in a housing which contains a parabolic reflector, a clear protective lens, a power source (typically electric batteries), and an electric power switch.

While most flashlights are intended to be held in the hand, there are also helmet-mounted flashlights designed for miners and campers. Some types of flashlights can be powered by hand-cranked dynamos, electromagnetic induction or recharged by solar power.

Words From The Discussion

1. Middle Ages
---The Middle Ages of European history (adjective form medieval or mediaeval) are a period in history which lasted for roughly a millennium, commonly dated from the fall of the Western Roman Empire in the 5th century to the beginning of the Early Modern Period in the 16th century, marked by the division of Western Christianity in the Reformation, the rise of humanism in the Italian Renaissance, and the beginnings of European overseas expansion. There is some variation in the dating of the edges of these periods which is due mainly to differences in specialization and focus of individual scholars.

2. Renaissance
---The Renaissance (from French Renaissance, meaning "rebirth"; Italian: Rinascimento, from re- "again" and nascere "be born")[1] was a cultural movement that spanned roughly the 14th to the 17th century, beginning in Florence in the Late Middle Ages and later spreading to the rest of Europe. The term is also used more loosely to refer to the historic era, but since the changes of the Renaissance were not uniform across Europe, this is a general use of the term.

3. Organum
---(pronounced /ˈɔrɡənəm/, though the stress is sometimes placed on the second syllable, from Ancient Greek ὄργανον - organon "organ, instrument, tool" [1]) in general is a plainchant melody with at least one added voice to enhance the harmony, developed in the Middle Ages. Depending on the mode and form of the chant, a supporting bourdon may be sung on the same text, or the melody is followed in parallel motion (parallel organum) or a combination thereof. As no real independent second voice exists this is a form of heterophony.

4.Plainsong
---Plainchant (also plainsong) is a body of traditional songs used in the liturgies of the Roman Catholic Church.

5. Gregorian Plainchant
---Gregorian chant is the central tradition of Western plainchant, a form of monophonic liturgical chant in Western Christianity that accompanied the celebration of Mass and other ritual services. This vast repertory of chants is the oldest music known as it is the first repertory to have been adequately notated in the 10th century[citation needed]. In general, the chants were learned by the viva voce method, that is by following the given example orally, which took many years of experience in the Schola Cantorum.

6. Mode
---Mode (from Latin modus, "measure, standard, manner, way") is a term from Western music theory having three definitions (Powers, 2001):

a. the rhythmic relationship between long and short values in the late medieval period;
b. in early medieval theory, interval;
c. most commonly, a concept involving scale and melody type.

7. Harmony
---Harmony in music is the simultaneous use of different pitches to make chords. Harmonics are wavelengths or frequencies related to one another by simple proportions. The study of harmony involves harmonic progressions and the structural principles that govern them.
