Humanities – Musical Artist

Choose a musical artist (from any music era) and provide a 1-2 page summary of the background or history of the artist. Next, pick one of his or her main works (songs or compositions) and explain:

  • The meaning
  • The musical elements
  • The contribution that this piece has had to the development of music

If possible, find a way to listen to the piece so that you can comment on your reaction to the work.
