n 200 words explain your understanding concerning each piece listened to, so comment on what you hear, how it associates with the video lectures and/or corresponding readings from the assignment text, your impression of what you hear, any of the questions listed to encourage deeper thought you feel appropriate, etc. Musical terminology gained from the vocabulary assignments are appropriate and expected to be used in the appropriate fashion, as well as the use of complete sentences, correct grammar, spell check, and other tools at your disposal, including proper use of valuable information in the accompanying descriptions. *I want to see evidence in your reports that the clips were viewed and the descriptions were read.* Listed here are some basic ideas on what to include in your journals to help get you started: https://musicedhighlights.wordpress.com/2011/06/09/getting-our-students-to-listen/
Example THREE: Jean Baptiste Lully (1632-1687) is credited with setting the French Baroque musical style, which is largely associated with the dance. Watch the following mini-biography:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ToDkAaiksq0 (Links to an external site.)The most important dance was the ‘ballet de cour’ or ‘court dance’. This overture to 1653’s Le Ballet Royal de la Nuit (Royal Dance of the Night), is from an unusually extended dramatic court celebration historically notable for featuring the debut 15-year old Louis XIV as Apollo the Sun King. It is also strongly dance-like, very characteristic of the day, and the complex and spectacular plot included mythological goddesses, demonic figures and others caught up in horrors of the night, with the heroic Sun King emphasizing the power or royalty and closeness to the divine by dispelling evil with the coming of the light.

Though Lully is largely responsible for the French style, François Couperin (1668-1733) is the most influential French composer of the Baroque. He is most remembered for his fanciful keyboard suites. This piece “Les Barricades Mystérieuses” is a selection from one of his collections of suites, and the title is likened to a fast-moving object with these ‘mysterious barricades’ places in the music causing the performer to slow down.Couperin: Les Barricades Mystérieuses, Hanneke van Proosdij, harpsichord (Baricades Mistérieuses) (Links to an external site.)
