Musical feature 1: Vocal music

Description: There are many types and styles of vocal medieval music. These include:

- Folk songs

- Court songs

- Plainchant

- Motet

Plainchant and motet were used for religious songs. Medieval court music was mainly composed and performed by poet-musicians who were born into noble families.


Musical feature 2: Dance music

Description: Popular dances from this period include: A farandole which is a line dance with two crotchet beats in a bar and an estampie which is a couples dance with three crotchet beats in a bar. It was probably composed by one of the troubadours and performed unaccompanied. It may also have been accompanied by another medieval instrument such as the psaltery. Estampie comes from the French word ‘estamper’, which means ‘to stamp the feet’.
Musical feature 3: Instruments

Description: The types of instruments included: Loud outdoor instruments such as the pipe, tabor (drum), shawm (a wind instrument), trumpet and cornet. Soft indoor instruments such as the fiddle, hurdy-gurdy, psaltery and rebec. A hurdy-gurdy is like a viola with a handle at one end. A psaltery is a stringed instrument that is plucked with the fingers or a plectrum. A rebec is a fiddle with a rounded back.
