This week’s lesson is focused on John Farmer’s , a cheerful madrigal. To emphasize the emotions of his poem, Farmer uses to great effect (see EBOOK pg.  83-84). This technique has continued to be used in music right up to the present day. Here’s a famous example of word painting in pop music: Garth Brook’s .  In this excerpt, listen for the line, “I got friends in low places,” and hear his voice suddenly drop to a low pitch on the word “low.”  In this way, the musical elements (a drop in pitch) demonstrate the meaning of the word.  Some instances of word painting are more subtle, but this is the basic idea.
