The Renaissance (14th – 17th centuries) was known as the Age of Enlightenment. Educational reform, the development of moveable metal type, an increased use of the vernacular in poetry and music, a modest increase in instrumental music and the Golden Age of Vocal Music. The Mass, Madrigal and Motet, increased in popularity and Giovanni Gabrieli experimented with an antiphonal style of music (poly choral texture) in Saint Mark’s Basilica. John Dowland, Thomas Morley, and John Farmer all contributed to the developed the Madrigal and Instrumental Music. “The Prince of Denmark’s March,” “My Fair Phyllis” and “Now is the Month of Maying” are outstanding examples of both instrumental and vocal music of the late Renaissance. As these composition were not written for modern brass instruments or in a poly choral style, they definitely lend themselves to both entities.
