Question1.

Thepiece Hallelujah starts with a sinfony. The instruments being heardat the beginning of the piece include an oboe, trumpet I and II,bosom, timpani, violin I and II, cello, harpsichord and viola, celloand harpsichord / organ. The harmonious combination of theinstruments gives the opening of the song a polyphonic texture in theintroduction part. This is due to the combination of theinstrumentation of the song at this part in different voices.

Question2

Thesection 0:06 – 0:24 has a homophonic texture. This texture occursduring the chorus, Hallelujah. This is as a result of one voice whichis used in this section. In this section, the melody which isundulating slowly unfolds above the changing harmony. The perfectharmonization of the voices, which blend perfectly finds the lowpitch finding its place perfectly.

Question3

Thepiece then goes to a homophonic texture, which occurs during thechorus (Hallelujah).Such a texture is as result of one voice which isprojected. This texture changes to polyphonic at, (He shall reign).These texture changes are as a result of shifting of the combinationof voices differently at the different parts of the song. The mood ofthe song then changes to a joyful celebratory.

Question4

Handelcan manipulate multiple elements of during the two messaged for theproduction of drastic results. This combination goes hand in handwith the change in texture with the rhythm flowing through thetransition smoothly. This gives the song the music such a harmoniouscombination with enhancement of the music too.

Question5

Inthe two sections, the combinations of the different pitches and tonesgive the song a shape of rises and falls. This rising and falling offby the piece at these points bring variations at different points.The instruments in these parts rise in harmony and harmonic fallswhich create smooth depressions in the song. However, in the(1:53–2:33) section, the piece comes to a kind of vanishing point,thus giving an allowance for a strong recovery of the song. A 1:37-1:38, some tension is created in the listener, like that of an endingpiece, though this does not happen.
