    Western Music History can be traced back to Medieval times, with the Introduction of Chanting

    (later termed Gregorian Chanting) into the Catholic church services. Western Music then started

    becoming more of an art form with the advances in music notation and more focus on secular

    themes that occurred in the Renaissance period. We then have expansions of range and

    complexity as we move into the Baroque era. The Classical era gives us the emotional power

    associated with such composers as Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Romanticism then transforms the

    rigid styles and forms of the Classical era into more individualistic stylizations. Tonality was at its

    peak during this period, then Impressionist music paved the way to the use of extreme

    dissonances in the music of the Modern era. This process continued into the current

    Contemporary period of music.

    A Note Time Periods [edit]There is no clear line when the Renaissance began and the Middle Ages ended. For western art

    music, there is no clear dividing point - the Renaissance in music happened at different times in

    different places. So for convenience, we will use 1400 A.D. as the start of the Renaissance.
