Monody. In poetry, the term monody has become specialized to refer to a poem in which one person laments another's death.


(In the context of ancient Greek literature, monody, μονῳδία could simply refer to lyric poetry sung by a single performer, rather than by a chorus.) Other musical streams which came together in the monody were the madrigal and the motet, both of which developed into solo forms after 1600 and borrowed ideas from the monody. Contrasting passages in monodies could be more melodic or more declamatory: these two styles of presentation eventually developed into the aria and the recitative, and the overall form merged with the cantata by about 1635.

The parallel development of solo song with accompaniment in France was called the air de cour: the term monody is not normally applied to these more conservative songs, however, which retained many musical characteristics of the Renaissance chanson.

The spacious, resonant interior was one of the inspirations for the music of the Venetian School. Rank-2 temperaments with the generator close to a fifth and period an octave - Meantone temperament. Meantone temperament is a musical temperament, that is a tuning system, obtained by slightly compromising the fifths in order to improve the thirds.

Rank-2 temperaments with the generator close to a fifth and period an octave - Meantone temperament

Meantone temperaments are constructed the same way as Pythagorean tuning, as a stack of equal fifths, but in meantone each fifth is narrow compared to the perfect fifth of ratio 3:2. Comparison between Pythagorean tuning (blue), equal-tempered (black), quarter-comma meantone (red) and third-comma meantone (green). For each, the common origin is arbitrarily chosen as C. The degrees are arranged in the order of the cycle of fifths; as in each of these tunings all fifths are of the same size, the tunings appear as straight lines, the slope indicating the relative tempering with respect to Pythagorean, which has pure fifths (3:2, 702 cents).

Wicki-Hayden note layout. Notes of each major scale are stacked on top of each other (in a row of two and one of three notes), putting them closer together.

Wicki-Hayden note layout

The Wicki-Hayden note layout is a musical keyboard layout that differs from the traditional layout. History[edit] The Wicki-Hayden (W/H) layout was initially conceived by Kaspar Wicki for the bandoneon and patented in 1896.[1] It was independently conceived and refined by Brian Hayden, a concertina player, who patented it again a century later, in 1986. This layout is popular with concertina players, since it places all the notes of the major scale under the fingers without requiring hand movement. Jim Plamondon later discovered the W/H layout while searching for an optimal keyboard layout to use in the electronic musical instrument he was designing. Jankó keyboard. This key layout results in each chord and scale having the same shape on the keyboard with the same fingerings regardless of key, so there is no change in geometry when transposing music.

The configuration retains the colouring of traditional keyboards (white naturals, black sharps and flats) for pedagogical purposes. For an 88-note (full size) keyboard, there would be 264 keys in total, with each note playable by three keys in vertical alignment. In the picture above, the white keys have been coloured to show how the keys are interconnected. Instead of 123 cm (48 in) the keyboard is only 89 cm (35 in) wide, and the smaller key size allows reaching wider intervals. The Jankó keyboard never achieved wide popularity. Many embodiments of this keyboard have appeared since its conception.
