    Dorindi Madrigal Analysis

    • 931 Words
    • 4 Pages

    When comparing Claudio Monteverdi’s compositional techniques in his madrigal “Dorinda, ah dirò” to what was traditionally expected in the prima practice, one notices a nonchalant treatment of dissonances, as well as an overall quickened sense of rhythm and far too many liberations in melodic writing.

This harsh head on charge into the unpleasantness is forbidden in counterpoint practice. Instead, on should consider the correction in example 1.2. By lengthening the measure into two, giving the canto line a smoother transition…

    There are several differences between the texts of a motet and a madrigal; there are also a lot of similarities between them as well. A motet; in classical music, is a word that is applied to a number of highly varied choral musical compositions. For a Renaissance Motet, the text is very religious; while its expressive style is moderately conservative. The main purpose was for worship; whereas its performance practice was extremely sophisticated, well-practiced, preached to a higher calling,…
