Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Loss of territories - productive land,industries and raw resources : English Musical and Historical Advances Music Music and literature have been paired together throughout the ages. Minstrels would recite poetry or play music, often times both simultaneously.The perfect era to show the development of music as well as literature, and their parallel movements, is the Renaissance, it being the period of advancements in all of the arts and the intellectual advancements of the human race in general. Many changes in music were due to the lack of control from the churchand the new found freedoms following thedecline in power. Music before the Renaissance was mostly church choral music Idea of life based around the church was replaced by humanism, which placed a high value on the individual (Stolba, p.149). A popular cadence before the Renaissance was the Plagal cadence (IV-I), but the development of the Authentic cadence (V-I) as an ending was proven to be stronger.
