Jake and Jackie Learn Some Musical Terms, Part 2
By Beth Beutler
  

1     Jake and Jackie were at their after-school music program on Thursday. Mrs. Mossett, the leader of the program, had been teaching them a variety of musical terms. She used the alphabet, and gave the students a term for each letter. Last week, they had learned terms for the letters A through J.
 
2     "Today, we are going to look at terms for the letters K through S," began Mrs. Mossett. "But before we do that, let's fill in the terms on the board for each of the letters A through J."
 
3     The kids began calling out the terms—Aria for "A," Baroque for "B," concerto for "C," and duet for "D." Encore was for "E," fugue for "F", Gregorian chant for "G", and harmony for "H." Interval was for "I," and jig for "J."
 
4     "Very good!" Mrs. Mossett said as she turned from the blackboard and looked again at the students. "Let me give you some other terms now.
 
5     "'K' can stand for 'Kapellmeister.' This was a person who was like a choir or music director for a church or a royal family.
 
6     "'L' is for 'lyric.' Does anyone know what that is?"
 
7     Sally, a friend of Jake and Jackie's, raised her hand. "Is it the words to a song?"
 
8     "Very good, Sally. That's correct.
 
9     "Let's make 'M' stand for 'madrigal.' This was a piece sung back in the Renaissance time by a group of singers. Most of the time, they sang it without instrumental backup. Does anyone happen to know another word for singing without musical instruments?"
