Chapel Royal
As the title Music at Court denotes, this article discusses the history and evolution of music in England’s royal households. In the early centuries, a group of selected chaplains had always formed a part of the royal household. However, these chaplains generally served as advisers and their roles were primarily political than musical. Nevertheless, these priests also assisted at the ceremonial occasions by some three or four clerici who possessed good singing voices and were drafted into the chapel for such occasions. As time went on, the occasional recruitment of these musical clerics ceased to satisfy the needs of the sovereign and a more permanent, concrete set of musical retainers were selected; a self-contained department of the household called the capella regis, which included chaplains, clerks and choristers.
Beginning during the reigns of Edward I and Edward II (1272-1327), a specialized body of liturgical musicians called the “Chapel Royal” began to take shape. The Chapel Royal were a special group of musically inclined personnel maintained by sovereigns of England within the royal household, to perform divine service in the monarch’s presence. The Chapel Royal were in constant attendance to the sovereign and travelled with the royal household and discharged its duties in the chapel of whatever place the king then happened to reside. From these modest beginnings, the chapel eventually developed into one of the foremost secular liturgical choirs in Europe with kings maintaining 40-50 voices in the choir to project the king’s image and conspicuous display of his wealth, resources and creative talent. From this talented tool of musicians came some of the pre-reformation composers of England. From 1558 on, the Chapel Royal went through several periods of ups and downs depending upon the interests of the then current sovereign. For…...

5 Musicological Fields

...Five Musicological Fields: The study of music also known as musicology encompasses five distinct fields. These include the study of historical musicology, ethnomusicology, philosophy of music, psychology of music and acoustics (Nation-master, 2013). The first major field, historical musicology, is the study of musical origins including subjects such as composers, genres and musical notation. Ethnomusicology is the second major field of musicology and is based around the field studies on music in diverse cultures. Thirdly, the philosophy of music is concerned with the central question of ‘what is music’. Another major field is Psychology of music which relates to the effect music has on human beings. The last musicological field of acoustics is the study of the science of sound (Nation-master, 2013). These five fields make up the fundamentals of musicology and will be explored within this report. Historical musicology focuses on the progression of music over time. This field studies the progressive styles of compositions, performances, receptions and criticisms of music (Nation-master, 2013). The methods of studying historical musicology also include source studies, manuscript studies, textual criticism, style criticism, the choice of historical method, musical analysis, and the application of musical analysis (Nation-master, 2013). This field of study also examines the lives and work of composers and performers (Queensland Studies Authority 2008). Influences and impacts......

The Genius Trane

...interest was music, but he did so much to broaden his intelligence and understanding in the later parts of his life. He wasn't much of a book reader for a long time, but once he started, he was unable to quit. This aided in giving him a "clear vision of the world," as he ended up becoming a very spiritual person, even to the point that he considered A Love Supreme his "gift to God" (Thomas, 184). His spirituality and acceptance of faith was a direct cause in making his music so widely appealing. In a chapter entitled "Oh Freedom: George Russell, John Coltrane, and Modal Jazz," in the book In the Course of Performance: Studies in the World of Musical Improvisation, Coltrane's connection with Eastern music is directly tied to a branch of musicology. "More significant from the point of view of ethnomusicology is how more open tonal frameworks served as musical crossroads facilitating the incorporation of transnational (especially non-Western) approaches to improvisation, timbre, and spirituality. The work of John Coltrane, for example, drew from India, Africa, and the Middle East, and he has always viewed his engagement with music theory as a spiritual as well as intellectual quest" (Nettl & Russell, 150). Coltrane's receptiveness to ideas through meditation allowed his music a certain degree of adaptability that led to its popularity—the thinking behind it essentially boiling down to: "if more people can understand it, more people will like it." So far, Coltrane lives up......

Industry History The history of music is often debated as some argue that it originated with animals and their various sounds, tones and exotic pitches, while others contend that it is derived from early human existence and the use of percussions, wind and string instruments, it is universally agreed that our world would not be the same without the sounds that are used to calm the savage beasts and incite crowds to action. One would have to study subjects like Bio musicology, Evolutionary Musicology, Neuromusicology, and Comparative Musicology for the debated origins of music. These subjects are what the artists that we assist have studied to perfect their craft prior to coming to Musically Infinite Studios to record their creative expressions to present to society and the world at large. Music is rumored and hypothesized to have been a result of some form of “sexual selection” which attempts to explain why there such various styles of music and why certain behavior matches what we would expect for a courtship display. It is written that this is almost identical to the age and sex profiles discovered by Daly and Wilson (2001), for homicides, which they took as evidence for sexual selection shaping propensities for violent sexual......

The Queen (2006)

...audience perceives the relation of personal memory and fact in establishing the unprecedented and interesting perception of a Queen. Like Stephen Frears, the editor David Leser through the article The Biggest Hit employs a combination of the collective memory of Down Under as an iconic Australian classic with deep sentimental values with court documentation and details of the plagiarism trial. This is attained through the incorporation of techniques in two key paragraphs - the use of dialogue from legal documents damaging the authenticity of the piece, and the evident admiration for culture, falling away for the money. The historical information of the song regards it as stolen because of specific representations of desiccation of musicology as proven through the Australian Copyright Act (1968) through the use of euphemism. “The “objective similarity” between the two work, as well as “casual connection” is what mattered most,” is what Leser uses to suggest the unanticipated   Summary: The perfect combination of historical extrapolation and subversive political commentary, "The Queen" sheds a new light on the British monarchy and the government. Helen Mirren and the rest of Stephen Frears' fabulous cast make you feel as if you're watching real events transpire.

...steps to ensure their findings. They first prepare to research, this includes gathering ideas of what they will research and where would be the best place to do so. Next, they conduct fieldwork by visiting or experiencing the culture of a specific place they are interested in researching. Then, they analyze their findings by gathering what they've recorded, what they've experienced, and what they've learned resulting in them forming a conclusion. Lastly, they share their findings. Fieldwork is the second step in the stages an ethnomusicologist follows and consists of the ethnomusicologist visiting or experiencing the cultures of the place they are researching. This gives relevance to any information an ethnomusicologist may bring forth in musicology. Music must be looked at through different lenses considering that no one person has the “right” definition of what music is. It is a wide topic and should be analyzed with an opened mind in order to better grasp what others understand music to be while still keeping in mind our own analysis. Ethnocentrism is forming the conclusion that one’s culture is better or normal based on their cultural understandings and judging that another culture is abnormal or weird not by first learning or experiencing that culture for oneself, but by being closed minded and praising what they are used to. I have not experienced ethnocentrism. I understand that the definition of music varies and although one may not be what I am used to, I have to......

Music in History

...Music history, sometimes called historical musicology, is the highly diverse subfield of the broader discipline of musicology that studies the composition, performance, reception, and criticism of music over time. Historical studies of music are for example concerned with a composer's life and works, the developments of styles and genres (such as baroque concertos), the social function of music for a particular group of people (such as music at the court), or the modes of performance at a particular place and time (such as the performance forces of Johann Sebastian Bach's choir in Leipzig). In theory, "music history" could refer to the study of the history of any type or genre of music (e.g., the history of Indian music or the history of rock). In practice, these research topics are nearly always categorized as part of ethnomusicology or cultural studies, whether or not they are ethnographically based. The methods of music history include source studies (esp. manuscript studies), paleography, philology (especially textual criticism), style criticism, historiography (the choice of historical method), musical analysis, and iconography. The application of musical analysis to further these goals is often a part of music history, though pure analysis or the development of new tools of music analysis is more likely to be seen in the field of music theory. (For a more detailed discussion of the methods see the section on "Research in Music History" below) Some of the intellectual......

...assembled into a few units called factions. The families were sorted out by a name, mark and can be sued and they had attributes like the head of the tribe, gathering of older folks, name and epithet, claimed properties, just to say a couple of things here. All these go far to give confirm that there was presence in Africa, thus I don't concur with Trevor-Roper when he says Africa does not have a history. Some would contend, obviously that Trevor-Roper and others are taking a gander at composing archives to show history however is that the main thing which can store history? A few million years back before the Europeans came to Africa, the African mainland was possessed by Black Africans and this is apparent in Archeology, Ancient Record, Musicology, Rock expressions, Monuments, Numismatics, Oral history, etc. For instance Archeology which is the experimental investigation of prior development and past human societies, gives proven that there has been a presence on the African landmass particularly when individuals uncovered parts of Africa and found relics. It has been found that a long way from having no history, it is likely that mankind's history really started in Africa. The most seasoned proof of human presence and that of our prompt predecessors has been found in Africa. In July 2002 additional confirmation of the presence of early primates in Africa was founded with the revelation of the fossilized stats of what has been called Sahelanthropus tchadensis, thought to......
