one paragraph of question:
1. The YouTube video you watched as part of this moduleâ€™s study materials addresses how sacred and secular intent often is determined simply by “text” and/or “context.” For this discussion forum, mention examples from your readings about vocal music for chamber and church in the early eighteenth century, at least one for a sacred piece and one for a secular piece. Be clear about how text and/or context influenced the use of the example in a sacred or secular way.
2. You are a professional composer in 1683. Write a letter to your patron, asking for funds to produce a composition. Be sure to identify the type of piece you wish to compose, the instrument or ensemble for which you would be writing, and the event (fictitious or not) for which the piece will be premiered.
