388 Listening Test

 |   |  1 min read

There will be four pieces of music played (each worth 5 marks) from different periods/lectures and you will be asked to identify the piece of music, who it is by and the year of its release.

If the song is significant because of WHO wrote it (ie a member of the group, or an outside songwriter) then you will need to acknowledge that and make a comment.

You will then be expected to write about the piece in terms of its cultural and/or musical significance. You should be able to reference its genre (and how it reflects that) if that is relevant also. You should also consider the lyrics, musical structure and its position in that artist/group's career.

In fact this is one of those rare times at university when you are actually asked to write all you know about something. 


You will have about 5 - 8 minutes on each piece. I will perhaps only play a couple of minutes of some songs
