Handel GCSE

Music GCSE Handel's Glory of the Lord

When was the baroque period? From about 1600 to 1750.
What is an oratorio? A religious opera.
What is the key of 'And the Glory of the Lord'? A major. (The key sometimes modulates to E major and B major.)
What is the tempo of the piece? Allegro. It is fast and sounds happy.
What does the tempo change to in the last four bars? Adagio - which is a little slower than allegro. This helps to create a grand ending.
What is the texture? It is homophonic throughout, although contrapuntal melodies make it polyphonic at times. There are also a few (split second) moments of monophony (e.g. in bar 11).
How many motifs are there? Four.
The last notes of the song create which kind of cadence? Plagal.
What part does the harpsichord play in this piece? Basso Continuo.
The word 'revealed' in the second motif is melismatic which means...? Each syllable was sung over more than one note.
The first motif is syllabic which means...? Each syllable had its own note.
