Here’s a fun topic!
Text painting, the compositional technique in which the music sounds like the words being sung, was an important feature of music of the Renaissance which continues to be prominent today. For example, Garth Brooks’ “Friends In Low Places,” reaches down to a very low pitch on the word “low”. That’s text painting…right from the Renaissance!
Name two or three songs that include an example of text painting from your favorite music and describe where it is employed in each song. Make sure your examples are a musical representation of the text or it will be wrong. Also remember to format the song titles (put them in quotes) or points will be deducted.
