Counter Reformation and the Baroque
For this Assignment, you will complete either Option A (an analysis of Baroque music) or Option B (an analysis of the Sistine Chapel). You will share your experiences with two pieces of music from the Baroque era or with the Sistine Chapel beginning from your first impressions, then with reflection after adding research and analysis. The Assignment should help you to see how reactions to art and music can be valuable from the start, and can change and evolve with more information, deeper consideration, and application of concepts that are learned.
Select either Option A or Option B, but either choice will require completion of Parts I, II, and III. If you select option A, you must select two pieces of work from Baroque composers in this week’s reading. The work can be found online and in the MyArtsLab.
Option A: Baroque Music
Part I A: Introduce the two different compositions of Baroque music and their composers. Then listen to the works. As you experience the music on this first occasion, take note of your impressions. You should write at least one page about your first reactions to the music, how you relate this work to music you have heard before, and what emotions and memories come to mind as you listen.
Part II A: Do research on the two pieces of music and/or the composers. Using two credible sources, report for at least 1 page on the hypothesis or elements of music that are featured in your research. What do some experts say about the Baroque music’s purpose, and the impressions it might leave on a listener?
Part III A: Finally, you’ll bring together your first impressions with the research and listen to the music again. What changes when you add more information to your analysis of the music? Which reactions remain with you from your first experience, and why do you think they are important? Talk about the experience of studying music beyond first impressions.
Option B: Sistine Chapel
Part I B: Take a virtual tour of the Sistine Chapel through the Vatican website. You can view the whole room, toggle up and down to study the ceiling and walls, and you can also zoom in to take a closer look at the work. As you experience the Chapel on this visit, take note of your impressions. You should write at least 1 page about your first reactions to the art, how you relate this work to art you have seen before, and what you emotions and memories come to mind as you view the Chapel.
Part II B: Do research on the Sistine Chapel. Using two credible sources, report for at least one page on the hypothesis or elements of art that are featured in your research. What do some experts say about the Sistine Chapel, its purpose, and the impressions it might leave on a viewer?
Part III C: Finally, you’ll bring together your first impressions with the research and visit the Chapel again. What changes when you add more information to your analysis of the Sistine Chapel as a work of art? Which reactions remain with you from your first experience, and why do you think they are important? Talk about the experience of studying art beyond first impressions.
For either option A or B, write with substance about the experiences. Be specific. Analyze both the music or art and your encounter with it.
