Music was important to this time because people started to use music to display their feelings and thoughts. Music was a way for them to describe what people were going through, without saying it and sometimes without even using words. People composed music more freely and individually. This freedom allowed composers to get away from the more strict music of the Medieval times. Music during this time had more harmony than in the Medieval times. This was really a time when people could compose the types of music they wanted to, without really being criticized.
