"This word is not used seriously in prose, unless it is a question of painting: "A painting has something gracieux about it."" - Bouhours, Remarques nouvelles (1675)
"Does not mean precisely the same thing as agréable. Strictly speaking, gracieux means someone who pleases or wants to please. ... It is rather through their manners than through their bearing that men are gracieux. ... The word gracieux should not be confused with upright, civil, polite, affable. ... Gracieux and agréable do not always refer to personal qualities In that case, the word gracieux expresses, strictly speaking, something that flatters [flatter] the senses or the self-esteem; and the word agréable expresses something that suits one's goût and esprit." - Trévoux (1771)

Grad (s.), Grade (pl.)(German m.) degree, step, grade, rank, order, level, rate, stage, standard, pitch (degree), degree (temperature: often n.)
Grada degree of tempering, 1/12 part of a Pythagorean comma. There are 613.81047 Grads to the octave. One Grad is the difference between a pure fifth of 701.955 cents and a 12-tET fifth of 700 cents and makes it a useful measure to describe temperings in a well-temperament. The name comes from Andreas Werckmeister (1645-1706) who used it to denote different divisions of a comma. It has a negligible difference to 1/11 part of a syntonic comma. Jan van Biezen calls this measure a Werckmeister, or Wm. Organ builders sometimes use this symbol, and approximate its size by 2 cents. Another useful property is that the minor diesis is almost exactly 21 Grad (21.002). So deviations from equal temperament of three consecutive major thirds when expressed in Grad always add up to 21. A Grad is 1.000655 times larger than a schisma

According to tradition, Louis XIV organized a contest between composers, giving them the same sacred text and time to compose the musical setting. He alone was the judge. Michel-Richard de Lalande (or Delalande) (1657-1726) was one of four winners assigned to compose sacred music for each quarter of the year (the other composers being Nicolas Coupillet (d. after 1713), Pascal Collasse (1649-1709) and Guillaume Minoret (1650-1720)). Although the model for the grand motet was created by Henry Dumont (de Thier) (1610-1684), who served in the royal chapel for twenty years from 1663 to 1683, it was two of his younger contemporaries - Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704) and de Lalande (or Delalande) - who took the genre to its height
the Abbé Perrin, in the preface to a collection of his own motet texts (1665), tells us that for Louis XIV's messe basse solennelle, the musical highpoint of daily worship at Versailles, "three [motets] are usually sung: a grand, a petit for the élévation, and a Domine salvum fac regem ('God save the king'). I have made the grands long enough that they can last a quarter of an hour ... and occupy the beginning of the Mass up to the élévation. Those of the élévation are shorter and can last up to the Post-Communion where the Domine [salvum] begins."

Grand Oper(German f.) grand opera
Grand operaa style of opera characterized by grandiose scale. Heroic and historical subjects, large casts, vast orchestras, richly detailed sets, sumptuous costumes and spectacular scenic effects were all features of this genre, especially when the operas were first produced. However, some recent revivals have featured excessive short cuts in an effort to minimize costs. Other characteristics include continuous music (recitative instead of spoken dialogue), a four or five-act structure and the prevalence of ballets and large scale processions. While there were a number of earlier operas which exhibited many of the traits of grand opera, these are essentially precursors of what we now regard as grand opera. True grand operas are generally regarded as originating in Paris during the late 1820s with Auber's La muette de Portici. The format quickly travelled to near-by countries, especially Germany, Austria, and Italy. But it fell into disfavor towards the end of the nineteenth century, as the expense of staging these mammoth works and the problems in finding singers capable of executing them caused newer styles to gain in popularity. There also was a great deal of opposition to them in Paris on the part of avant-garde intellectuals such as Claude Debussy who were embarrassed by what they saw as the excesses of grand opera. Nevertheless, grand opera did not die out, many composers continued to write these works, and the style continued to be influential

Grand Touran extensive journey to the Continent, chiefly to France, the Netherlands, and above all Italy, sometimes in the company of a tutor, that became a conventional feature in the education of the English gentleman in the eighteenth century. Such tours might take a year or more. It had a noticeable effect in bringing a more cosmopolitan spirit to the taste of connoisseurs and laid the basis for many collections among the landed gentry. It also helped the spread of the fashion for Neoclassicism and an enthusiasm for Italian painting. Among the native artists who catered for this demand were Batoni, Canaletto, Pannini, and Piranesi, and British artists (such as Nollekens) were sometimes able to support themselves while in Italy by working for the dealers and restorers who supplied the tourist clientele. There was also a flourishing market in guide books

Great Nineteenth Century Rhythm Problem, Theif you write eight bars of a waltz in 3/4 time in a popular idiom (which implies 8 bar phrases), if you're not careful (or not a good composer) two bars will soon be subsumed into what sounds like a 6/8 bar (i.e. compound duple), the next two bars likewise - then those two 6/8-like bars will be mentally subsumed into a 12/8 bar. The same happens to the next four bars, which leaves you with two 12/8 bars - i.e. two bars of "four", rather than eight bars of three. It was, as Cone put it in Musical Form and Musical Performance (1968), "the tyranny of the four measure phrase", although conceding that "it is never in the music of the masters, a tyrant. This is because it is for them a rhythmic, not a metric entity."

Greek folk songGreek folk song can be divided into two cycles, the akritic and klephtic. The akritic was created between the 9th- and 10th-centuries A.D. and expressed the life and struggles of the akrites (frontier guards) of the Byzantine empire, the most well known being the stories associated with Digenes Akritas. The klephtic cycle came into being between the late Byzantine period and the start of the Greek War of Independence struggle in 1821. The klephtic cycle, together with historical songs, paraloghes, love songs, wedding songs, songs of exile and dirges express the life of the Greeks. There is an indivisible unity between the Greek people's struggles for freedom, their joys and sorrow and attitudes towards love and death. There is, however, a difference between dhimotiko traghoudhi (folk song) and laiko traghoudhi (popular song). A "folk song" refers to the old songs of a given people; whereas, a "popular song " refers to more recent musical creations. Folk songs refer to all songs created before the 1821 War of Independence, which belong to the akritic and klephtic cycle

Greek modethe ancient Greeks identified their modes by the sequence of intervals in a falling scale. When, much later, music theorists tried to understand new musical ideas in terms derived from what the ancient Greeks had written, or more accurately in terms derived from what they understood of the ancient Greek musical system, they applied the names to the wrong scales. Today we used the Medieval naming convention and not that of the ancient Greeks. From the seventeenth century onwards, the modal basis of Western music was replaced slowly by the major-minor system which remains, in contemporary Western musical culture, the most widely used harmonic system
Greek music, AncientGreek music theory understood scales in terms of tetrachords (series of four notes with a compass of a perfect fourth) which succeed each other in two ways - either the last note of one tetrachord coincides with the first note of the adjoining tetrachord (this being called synaphe, conjunction) or an interval of a tone is left between them (this being called diazeuxis, separation)

Greghesca(Italian f.) in the mid-sixteenth century, light songs sung to a text written in a dialect which was a literary (especially theatrical) imitation of the way in which Venetian was spoken by Greek residents in the Republic, the so-called greghesco. Its development and decline centred firstly on the stage (the last comedy in which a character speaks greghesco was published in 1562) and then in poetry and prose (for example, in a novella of 1609). Venice created a number of other stylized theatrical dialects including tedesca (Venetian-German), albanese (Venetian-Albanian) and zingaresca (Venetian-Gypsy)

Gregorian Association, TheThe Gregorian Association was founded in 1870 to promote the singing of Gregorian Chant to English texts, and to overcome the prejudice which existed against doing so. Its policy has recently increased in scope, so that the it is now fully oecumenical, and promotes and uses the chant in Latin as well as Modern English and that of the Book of Common Prayer
Gregorian chantcanto gregoriano (Italian, Spanish), Gregorianische Gesang (German), chant grégorien (French)
monophonic melodies, a type of plainsong, believed for some time to have been systematised by Pope Gregory I (590-604), although recent research has shown that the Pope Gregory involved in the creation of the liturgy was more probably Pope Gregory II (r. 715-731). We now use the term Old Roman for the chant contemporary with Pope Gregory I and what we call 'Gregorian chant' is more properly called Carolingian chant. Aaccording to the traditional view Greorian chant was imported from France into Spain in the late eleventh century at the time of the suppression of the native Spanish liturgy and chant. Manuscripts of Gregorian chant preserved in Spain, which were for the most part copied there, bear witness to the imposition of non-Spanish chant on Spain. However, a close examination of these manuscripts also reveals several chants and melodies that do not appear in sources outside of Spain, and hence are not borrowed from France. These must have been composed in Spain itself

Growlingthis was originally one of the many saxophone effects often used as a novelty. Apart from the fact that it is now one of the main hallmarks of rock and blues saxophone playing, it was also used in mainstream jazz: notably Ben Webster, Illinois Jacquet and Earl Bostic.

This note is not necessarily the same note as the player is fingering/playing. The ideal note to sing can vary, it could be a harmony note or the same note slightly out of tune
