Directions: Summarize the meaning and purpose of Guillaume Machaut’s lyrics for“Ma fin est mon commencement” (2 sentences). What are two identifyingcharacteristics of this piece and how are these characteristics illustrated in thevideo (1 sentence)? What specific directions are given to the performers in thelyrics to help them solve the canon’s puzzle (1 sentence)? What is a rondeau andfor what characteristics of a rondeau is “Ma fin est mon commencement” a typicaland/or atypical example (2-3 sentences)?Your Log Entry: The purpose of the meaning and purpose of Guillaume Machaut’s for “Ma fin est mon commencement” there is no end to his or her heart. An example in the lyrics that prove this is when it says, “My end is my beginning, and my beginning is my end, and throughout I hold true at heart.” One characteristic that is shown in the video is the first two lines of the poem are repeated as the final two lines, such as in (0:00-3:11) and another characteristic the cantus voice is the Triplum voice sung backward in(0:00-3:11). The text is the key to a musical puzzle, giving performance directions to the musicians so that they can perform the piece. What is typical for “Ma fin est mon commencement” the first two lines of the poem are repeated as the final two lines. Atypical about this piece is having 8 lines, but a usual piece has a length of 10 – 15 lines.Log Entry #2. Directions: “Greensleeves” and “Tant m’abelis” are both examples of troubadour/minstrel music from the Medieval period. Using the video link above and the relevant class Powerpoints, list and describe the instruments used in theseperformances (2 sentences). Summarize and then compare and contrast the lyrics for these two pieces (2 sentences). Explain the metaphors and double meanings inthe lyrics (1 sentence). In what ways are the lyrics typical or atypical of a troubadour song (1 sentence)? Your Log Entry: The instruments that are used in “Greensleeves” is the harp, lute, a chest of viols, recorders and bowed psaltery and how the instruments were used in the performances was a calm tone as well as developing a sense of the medieval period from melody heard from the instruments and then for the instruments in “Tant m’abelis” that is used are soprano, Counter-tenor, rebab, flute, and lute tambourine. The Page 2 of 3instruments that are used make a fast tempo, and listening to the melody reminds me of being in Egypt. Both lyrics from “Greensleeves” and “Tant m’abelis” talk about love inthe performances of the two pieces. The difference between the two lyrics is that “Greensleeves” talks about losing love, but “Tant m’abelis” talks about having love. The double meanings in “Greensleeves” tells the audience he’s talking about his wife and for the metaphors in “Tant m’ableis” mean that the wife to him is like a god. Typical, the texts were intellectual (rational) and metaphorical (people, events, and objects represented in other ways, such as a brave person appearing as a lion in the story.Log Entry #3.
