The motet was one of the most important forms of polyphonic music from 1250 to 1750. The Italian mottetto was originally a profane polyphonic species of music, the air, or melody, being in the Tenor clef, taking the then acknowledged place of the canto fermo or plainchant, theme. It originated in the 13th century resulting from the practice of Pérotin and his contemporaries in Paris. The term "motet" can be translated as "the word of movement". Sometimes two upper voices had different words. In the beginning, Latin texts involving topics of the Virgin Mary were used. Later, French secular pieces became common due to the fact that the motet terminated its connection with church and liturgy. Between the years 1390 and 1435, Dunstable Power produced polyphonic motets that are still worthy of attention. Dunstables "Quam Pulchra Es" is a three-part motet. It concludes with an Alleluia being far in advance of any similar work during the first quarter of the fifteenth century. It exemplified a genuinely artistic style. Equally beautiful are the motets of Lionel Power, the manuscripts of which are at Vienna, Bologna, and Modena. One of his happiest efforts is a four-part motet in which the treatment is peculiarly melodious and of an Irish flavor. During the late 13th century, motets with tenors sharing similar rhythms with the upper voices became possible. Several motet types blossomed in France, but reduction in diversity occurred because of the acclaimed works of Philippe de Vitry, who died Bishop of Meaux. He wrote a work entitled "Ars Compositionis de Motetis", the date of which was probably 1320. This volume (now in the Paris Bibliothèque Nationale) contains our oldest specimens of sacred motets, and these continued to set trends for over two centuries. Machaut's motets also showcased a preference for French texts. Guillaume de Machaut used isorhythm in the tenor and occasionally the upper parts as well. His signature became increasingly common in the late
Analysis: Isorhythmic Motet
There were a total of five separate talea consisting of three colores. The first three talea were in 3/2 time and the final two were in 6/8. Taleas A-I and B-I share the same color, while A-III and B-III also share the same color. A-II had the only unique color. While there are no actual repetitive talea in the upper voices, there are many cyclical repeated rhythms. For example, the triplum in measures eleven through eighteen match the exact rhythm for the eight….
The Evolution of the Motet
The Evolution of the Motet
Throughout the history of music, there have been few styles that not only have opened doors to masterwork compositions in their own genres, but have also led the way to other musical techniques over the musical eras and one of these magical music styles is the motet. The motet can easily be confused with other musical structures but what separates the motet from other types of group-performance based styles of music is "a piece of music….
A motet can be defined as an unaccompanied choral or composition based on a sacred Latin text. There are some exceptions, such as motets that have secular text or instrumental accompaniment. In general, motets normally used religious texts that were not used in the mass. Motets were often polyphonic, meaning that there were multiple vocal parts sung simultaneously. Motets started to be written during the medieval period and then developed throughout time and was most known throughout the Renaissance….
The motet is hardly a term that can be defined in brief. It is a word that requires a descriptive analysis for each time period. Throughout its history, the motet has taken on several different forms and ideas. A significant difference in the definition of the motet can be seen between the 13th and 14th centuries.
It is appropriate to begin in the 13th century, when the motet was originated. Originally, the motet was seen as a decoration of chant, for it was based on the sacred Latin texts of….
‘Development’ is a concept which is contested both theoretically and politically,

physical expressions noted in the parent’s behavior. Children mimic parental expressions too, causing feelings of comfort and security within the infant. The dynamics of physical and verbal contact between parent and infant, will aid in the child’s development creating a strong premise for processing emotions, physical expressions, and socially acceptable behavioral responses. Along with the aforementioned benefits of synchrony, impairment of this concept may occur under the following conditions:

Development is the act or process of growing or causing something to grow or to become larger or more advanced. The life span perspective of development involves understanding changes that occur in every period of development. This view seeks to understand people throughout the changes in life and how these changes shape an individual into whom they become. All these changes occur from birth, throughout a persons’ life, into and during old age. Life span development is multidirectional, multi….
