Music especially songs like country music, Reggae, and some local...

...Music/English April 28, Music of the 18th Century Introduction At the turn of the 16th – 17th centuries polyphony, which dominated the music of the Renaissance, began to give way to homophony.

Some pieces of music appear which were composed under the influence of religious texts or stories but not intended for performance in churches only. The main genres of the 17th – 18th... Full …...
