-Then, answer the following questions:
1. Name two of the Renaissance instruments that seem similar to the modern-day instruments you learned about in Chapters 9 and 10.
2. Referring to your answer to question 1, which modern instruments are they similar to?
a. Is our modern day uses for those instruments similar to how they were used in the Renaissance, or different? Write a few sentences to explain your answer.
b. Are there still instances today where we use instruments for how loud or soft they are? Give at least one specific example.

3. After listening to LG 13, describe the musical differences you hear between the recitative and the beginning of the aria. *Hint: Use the Open ILG (Interactive Listening Guide) for this example so you can see where the Recitative ends and the Aria begins.
a. As the aria continues, are there any musical elements that remain the same as they were in the recitative? What are they?
4. The text mentions how the ground bass is a symbol of grief in this time period. In addition to this, how do the instruments that are playing contribute to the feeling of grief that Purcell is trying to convey in the aria? Write several sentences to describe what you hear.
5. After listening to the “Hallelujah Chorus” (the second example of LG 15), how does Handel approach word painting in a similar way as we discussed in the chapters from last week? Describe one example that you hear in the piece.
6. After reading about the typical subject material for an oratorio, think of one modern idea for the plot of an oratorio and briefly describe what it would be. (Feel free to give a non-religious example, if you prefer).
