Explain the features of ‘And the glory of the Lord’ by Handel
In terms of melody, word setting and structure, the piece, ‘And the glory of the Lord’ by Handel, is structured around the main 4 melodic ideas, starting with a rimornello: ‘and the glory of the Lord’( idea 1), ‘shall be revealed’ (idea 2), ‘and all flesh shall see it together’(idea 3) and ‘for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it’(idea 4). The first idea has two characteristic features. The first three notes, although not in order, make up up the A major triad and the second feature is a stepwise scale ending. The setting of the word is mainly syllabic. The second idea has a melismatic setting of the word ‘revealed’ and this is built up of a two one-bar descending sequence. The third idea is repetitive having three statements of the descending fourth idea. Because it is repeating, it gives the impression of a firm statement. The fourth idea is characterised by long repeated notes. These notes emphasise the idea ‘the Lord hath spoken it’. To achieve this strength Handel doubles the part with tenors and basses. All four of these short melodic phrases contrast from one another, so that when Handel combines them together, each melody having its own character and shape can be clearly heard.
This piece’s instrumentation suits its grand yet religious nature. There is a SATB(Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass) choir. Double basses play same as cellos but sound an octave lower. The introduction is just the strings alone. Some vocal parts are accompanied only by continuo for example the first vocal entry. Harpsichord improvises harmonies from the bass line. Handel later added in parts for the bassoon and oboe.
In terms of the piece’s tonality and harmony, major keys are used all the way throughout the piece to highlight te piece’s joyous mood. The piece begins and ends in the key of A major. One section of the piece is played in the dominant key ,E major, then another section modulates to B major. It first modulates to E major in bar 21-22; it changes back to A major in bar 43; it then changes to B major in bar 67-68; it again modulates back to A major. Throughout the piece, are perfect cadences but the piece finishes with a plagal cadence.
The texture alternates between homophonic (in bars 11-14) and contrapuntal(e.g 4 point counterpoint in bar 97), but there are a few short monophonic sections(for example, right at the beginning). Handel often combines different motifs to create polyphonic textures. Contrasts are created by the use of the single voice in contrast with the whole choir. Instruments often double vocal line although usually at different octaves.
In terms of rhythm, the time signature of 3/4 is used throughout. Hemiola is used (for example bars 9-10). Longer note values used to highlight idea 4. This is a joyous movement which is reflected in the the allegro tempo and the lilting rhythms. The ending is a total silence followed by a sustained plagal cadence.…...

...perform daily functions and the knowledge, skill and abilities (KSAs) needed to perform the job as identified. As (Handel, Michael 2001, p 1-9) stated, it is commonly assumed that jobs in the United States require greater levels of skill and especially in the field of Information Technology. This is a concern where workers possess skill but the inequality of skills do not match the educational training required to do the job. Young people have the skills to do the job but may not have the motivation older workers have. Knowledge, Skills and Abilities Job skill requirements have increased overtime and provide individual level measures of job the skills measurement at an occupational level. It has been widely accepted that direct measure of job skill requirements have raised rapidly with the skills shortage in technology. Basic work elements of the job should be identified and the steps necessary to achieve job performance. According to Handel, 2012, p 7), not only is concept of skill complicated to define, the skills of workers is difficult to define from their own educational level and concept of the job to be performed. Resources needed to impact the TSAs will be environmental, training and time required, education and tools and equipment needed to perform the job. Cognitive skills can be used during job observation to test the employee.

...Tutorial 10 Anita Carolina (1001129588) Both Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel were Baroque composers that were born in Germany at the same year of 1685. Bach was born in Eisenach and came with musical family background over 6 generations which was based on the region of Thuringia in the Central Germany. In contrast, Handel was born in Halle and from a non-musical family. Both of them had different educational progress throughout their lives. Bach, in his early years, attended Latin School, learned violin with his short-lived father, and later on, he would study music with his older brother, Johann Christoph Bach whom was an organist himself. And afterwards, Bach took 2 years to study French Repertoire and local orchestra style in Luneberg School; nonetheless, he never completed his study. In the other hand, Handel was supposedly asked by his father to study law, but out of his interest, he played music without the knowledge of his father and later on, his father would later allowed him studied music education in organ, harpsichord, counterpoint, German and Italian idioms with Friedrich Wilhelm Zachow as his organ playing impressed even the Duke. Other than keyboard instruments, he also learned how to play oboe and violin. In 1702, he entered the University of Halle and chosen as cathedral organist. In the entire life of Bach, he had 4 different positions in different German local cities. His first position was as a church organist at Arnstadt in 1703 while...

Comparison of the Keyboard Suites of Bach and Handel

...Andrew Ellis MUSI 3510 Goldstein 21 November 2013 Keyboard Suites of Handel and Bach The period from 1600 to 1750 gave western music some of its most well-known and beloved works. During this time, referred to as the Baroque Period, these pieces were written by some of the most prolific composers of all time. These musicians came from across Europe. Frenchmen, Italians, Englishmen, Germans, and others all made great contributions and advancements toward the development of music as we know it. However two of these men were perhaps the most important of all - George Frideric Handel and Johann Sebastian Bach. While both of these men were born in Germany, the details of each of their employment in the musical profession includes vast differences in both the method by which they acquired their influences and the countries in which they held positions. The purpose of this essay is to use the details of each composer's life, prior to composition of the pieces in question, and musical examples from within the composition written from each man to differentiate and highlight specific writing styles and habits. Furthermore, two pieces will be from a genre that both Bach and Handel wrote in fairly extensively, the keyboard suite, will be used as these musical examples. Bach's English Suite No. 4 in F major (BWV 809) and Handel's Keyboard Suite No. 1 in A major (HWV 426) are the works that will be used. From Bach's Birth to His Time in Cothen Johann Sebastian Bach was......

Handel Water Music Essay fanfare-like ideas in a repeated crotchet motif with an upbeat. The strings and oboes play two descending D major scales in unison. After this at bar 5, beat 2½, the fanfare ideas are then echoed in the horns with the bassoon and “basso” playing the string/ oboe motif heard in the opening 4 bars, with an octave repetition. There is antiphonal texture throughout, and Handel divides the orchestra into two distinct groups. Group 1 – oboes, trumpets, violins and violas. Group 2 – Bassoons, horns, cellos and basso. After this at bar 9 beat 3, there is a brief cadential idea (V – I) between the two groups. The entire movement is based around a series of short phrases (half a bar to 4 bars long). Statements made by trumpets and higher instruments (group 1) are then repeated by horns and lower instruments (an octave lower). This pattern continues until bar 37. Most phrases begin and end with either tonic or dominant harmony. In bar 15, the trumpets (and group 1) start a 4 bar phrase using dotted rhythms to create a stately feel. This is then echoed in the horns (and group 2) at bar 19. At bar 25/26 Handel modulates to A major (dominant key) with the aide of the G# in the trumpets at bar 26 beat 4 (then again by the horns in bar 28 beat 4). After this, the semiquavers in the trumpets help to modulate back to the tonic key (with G naturals). The horns in bar 27create an inverted pedal – the A foreshadows a shift from the dominant back to the tonic. This, as usual is......

He showed interest in music, but was not encouraged to develop it. His father hated music, considering it a pastime that showed weakness of character. He wanted his son to have the financially secure career of a lawyer and therefore wouldn’t allow young Handel to play an instrument. Nevertheless, Handel managed to learn to play the organ and clavichord – a small instrument that resembles a piano. One story suggests that Handel’s sympathetic mother smuggled the clavichord to him in the attic. By covering the strings with cloth, Handel was able to practice every night without being heard by his father. Handel might never have been allowed to practice music openly if it hadn’t been for a duke who heard him play the organ. The duke persuaded Handel’s father to allow him to take music lessons. The young boy’s first music teacher was F.W. Zachau, the organist of the Lutheran Church in Halle. Handel, who was about eight years old, made quick progress under Zachau’s direction, learning the organ, harpsichord...

Baroque Era

...composed sacred cantatas for functions like weddings. Typically, his cantatas open with a short orchestral prelude which is followed by an extended chorus, then solo singing interlaced with the chorales, and finally closing with a hymn. Bach composed over 300 cantatas. These intimate works offer a very personal view of his spirituality, of his vision of life and death, and of his lifelong devotion to his Creator. Later vocal music owes much to these cantatas, from the exquisite, delicate miniatures of Romantic period song-cycles to the grandiose choral exaltation of the closing movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. In the 17th and 18th centuries composer wrote the music that their employers demanded of them. Unlike his close contemporary Handel, Bach never worked for an employer who was interested in or who promoted opera. In fact, much of Bach's life was spent in the employment of the church, which is why we have so many church cantatas, motets and the great Passions. Operas were supposed to be light entertainment. Bach wasn't famous for anything light at all; his music was considered too somber and complex by most of his contemporaries. Also, Bach did not like operas too much-- presumably because they all were the light entertainment they were supposed to be. It was the Brandenburg No. 2, after all, whose opening movement was chosen to be the first offering of human music sent out into galactic space on the “golden record” aboard the 1977 Voyager probes.

George Frideric Handel and Baroque Music Name: 高晓莹(Alison) Student No.:130440202 Major:Applied English(International Business) George Frideric Handel and Baroque Music It is commonly believed that music is an important way to express one's feelings and emotions. Music tells us who we are as well as reflects our thinking ,values and the social environment it came from. As we know, in the long run of history, music vary from period to period. Baroque music is one of the special style of music.Baroque music describes a style of European classical music approximately extending from 1600 to 1750. This era is said to begin in music after the Renaissance and was followed by the Classical era. The word "baroque" came from the Portuguese word barroco, meaning "misshapen pearl".That is to say, the typical characteristic of Baroque music is replacing the old with the new , though it may be irregular, exaggerated as well as grand. George Frideric Handel is a famous German-born British composer during this period. He was born in Halle (Germany), on February 23rd,1685, just a month before JS Bach was born in Eisenach, not so far to the south. Handel's father intended him for the law, but his own musical inclinations soon prevailed.He was strongly influenced both by the great composers of the Italian Baroque and the middle-German polyphonic choral tradition.

Es muss darauf geachtet werden, dass sie nicht bei einer Anzeigenschaltung in Printmedien, TV und Radio endet, sondern den Dialog über Social Media einbezieht. Die starke Zunahme an internetfähigen Smartphones bietet zudem weitere interessante Möglichkeiten der Kundenansprache. 2. Welche Möglichkeiten hat der Handel, sich den demografischen Entwicklungen anzupassen und das Marketing-Konzept auszurichten? Bei der demografischen Entwicklung sind zum einen die Alterung der Gesellschaft und zum anderen der Bevölkerungsrückgang in Deutschland insgesamt zu beachten. Hinsichtlich des steigenden Anteils älterer Menschen in Deutschland hat sich der Handel bisher vor allem auf die sogenannten „Best Ager“ konzentriert, jene Gruppe der jungen Alten. Aber warum gerade diese Fokussierung? Diese Gruppe gilt zum einen als aktiv und konsumfreudig und andererseits nimmt diese Altersgruppe stark zu. Die Produkte, mit denen sich die Branche an sie richtet, sind insbesondere dem Themengebiet Wellness (Lebensfreude, Vitalität, jugendliches Aussehen) zuzuordnen. Mit Blick auf die Zukunft wird eine weitere Facette der alternden Gesellschaft wichtiger werden: die „alten Alten“. Die Zahl der über 80- und 90-Jährigen wird weiter......

The Blinding of a Rivalry

...Tim Chang Music 261: Professor Kasunic The Blinding of a Rivalry Both Cuzzoni and Faustina were superstars of their era with many similar, yet contrasting characteristics. Francesca Cuzzoni was born on April 2, 1696 in Parma, Italy. She started her career at 18 in Italy and continued to strive from that point on in various parts of Europe. In 1722, the established composer, George Frideric Handel, recruited Cuzzoni to be the star of his Royal Academy of Music. She eventually joined Handel in England in 1723. Faustina Bordoni was born on March 30, 1697 in Venice, Italy. She, like Cuzzoni, made her debut in her hometown at the age of 19 and continued to flourish in this career. While Cuzzoni moved to London to work with Handel in 1723, Faustina continued to thrive in Italy. It was not until 1726 when Handel drew Faustina over to London to “rival” Cuzzoni in the Royal Academy of Music. Think of these two stars of Handel as the Britney and Christina of the 1720’s. The Academy is where most the media about their rivalry is expressed. Scholars such as Isabelle Emerson, Winton Dean, Steven LaRue and Suzanne Aspden have various viewpoints on Handel’s contribution to this rivalry. Emerson, writing in 2005 in her research of Five Centuries of Women Singers, argues that Cuzzoni and Faustina, though rivals, relied on each other for success. Emerson writes that, “rivalry aside, the two artists must have complemented each other remarkable well as singers. ......

Performance Review

...Review of Handel and Vivaldi Fireworks Handel and Vivaldi Fireworks is a tale of two Baroque cities—London and Venice, performed by Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra and Philippe Jaroussky. The orchestra and the countertenor together presented a fantastic show including several great pieces of music composed by Handel and Vivaldi from great dramas. Their suggestive facial expressions and body movements were visible in the concert, which fully conveyed their feelings to the audience, implying that they put their heart and soul into interpreting the music rather than just singing or playing the tones and notes. In the first part of the concert, Philippe showed his stunning coloratura in Con’l a li di costanza. He always had a smile on his face with his body slightly forward while singing this opera selection. What is more, when he sang to the climax, he held up his hands. Instead of singing with his voice, Philippe sang with every part of his body. He was fully immersed in the music and he might didn’t notice that he had these gestures. Joy took the form of the notes and his body language. Without knowing the lyrics of this song, the audience could still feel the happiness in the music through Philippe’s actions. Both his astonishing singing technique and his expressions enraptured the audience by the bright music. Not only Philippe, but the whole orchestra explained the music with affluent body actions. Unlike some other orchestras where musicians sit......
