RENAISSANCE REVIEW

The Renaissance Ballett (Fa-La)
A simpler type of secular vocal music than the madrigal was the ballett
(or fa-la) a dance like song for several solo voices. In contrast to
much Renaissance music, the ballett was mostly homophonic in texture
with the melody in the highest voice. The same music is repeated for
each stanza of the poem, and the syllables fa-la are used as refrain.
Like the madrigal the Renaissance ballett originated in Italy. It was
cultivated in England around 1595 to the 1620ís.
