Âge d'or(French m.) golden age
the term Golden age stems from Greek mythology. It refers to the highest age in the Greek spectrum of Iron, Bronze, Silver and Golden ages, or to a time in the beginnings of Humanity which was perceived as an ideal state, or utopia, when mankind was pure and immortal. In literary works, the Golden Age usually ends with a devastating event, which brings about the Fall of Man (see Ages of Man). An analogous idea can be found in the religious and philosophical traditions of the Far East. For example, the Vedic or ancient Hindu culture saw history as cyclical composed of yugas with alternating Dark and Golden ages. The Kali yuga (Iron Age), Dwapara yuga (Bronze Age), Treta yuga (Silver age) and Satya yuga (Golden age) correspond to the four Greek ages. Similar beliefs can be found in the ancient Middle East and throughout the ancient world

Agende(German f.) the word liturgy was used exclusively for the sacramental and sacrificial acts of the minister for his congregation. The word was introduced into the Lutheran Church from the Reformed Church via England and France. Luther was opposed to the word liturgy primarily because of its connections with the Roman Catholic Church and what he regarded as the exaggerated sacrificial connotation that that had acquired. He preferred that the word should be used in its original sense, that is, a service of any kind for the community, whether civil or religious. Luther preferred to keep the term missas agere which had been customary in the old Church. From this phrase was derived the term agenda (Latin: things to be done). This term was introduced into the Lutheran Church in the sixteenth century and has been used more commonly than the term liturgy or its Greek equivalent, leitourgeia. However, the English-speaking section of the Lutheran Church has again preferred the term liturgy, although agenda (in German, die Agende) is also used. In the Roman Catholic Church the terms rituale, manuale, obsequiale and sacerdotale are increasingly used in place of missa

Agréments du chant(French m. pl.) the ornaments appropriate to the performance of singing that were notated with a complicated system of signs developed by the French but abandoned by Rossini in favour of fully written-out ornaments
Jean-Baptiste-Antoine Suard (1732-1817) writes: "we cannot conceive why the composer himself does not take care to write small notes suited to the expression of the words, and the air. If they are necessary, it should not be left to singers either to neglect or execute, much less should they be permitted to disfigure or alter the true charatcer of the air, by useless or commonplace ornaments. It is only in Bravura airs, destined to show off the voice, that singers should be permitted to use their own discretion in the selection of embellishments"
"Singing or playing proprement means executing a French melody with the appropriate ornaments. This melody does not in the least depend upon the sheer strength of the sound; and, having no character of its own, it only assumes one through the expressive turns one gives it during performance. These turns [agréments du chant] are taught by singing masters." - Rousseau (1768)
