Summary, etc.:
Begin to contemplate the connections between composers and specific historical events. Grasp how Thomas Morleýs madrigals in praise of Queen Elizabeth I engaged with English national self-perception and myth, and how Leon Jancek and Frederic Chopin responded to political events in key works. Take account of how the magnified emotions stirred by human conflicts feed artistic creation, and how artists have managed to convert the most terrible of human experiences into transcendent art.
