There is always an intriguing perspective on the events that have unfolded throughout history, each distinct in its own right. While the past has shaped the memories we hold, it has also influenced the development of both individuals and society today. As part of the fascinating tapestry of European history, the Middle Ages is characterized by three distinct periods, one of which is the Medieval period. When the Roman Empire lost its grip, the Medieval period took its place. In terms of music during this era, medieval instruments played a crucial role in defining its character.

Plucked stringed instruments were particularly popular during the Medieval period. Additionally, the music produced during this time was divided into two categories: sacred and secular. Naturally, musicians who composed melodies and lyrics for the church aimed to portray it in a positive light. On the contrary, secular music served as entertainment and reflected the perspectives of the common class. As travelers journeyed from one place to another, they spread these musical messages, utilizing instruments such as bagpipes that were portable and lightweight.

Every celebration, whether a feast or festival, called for an uplifting atmosphere, and medieval instruments greatly contributed to the overall ambiance of each festivity. Different genres of music were played for each occasion, evoking the desired mood. For instance, weddings and love songs stirred feelings of affection.

Medieval music is said to have given birth to polyphony, characterized by the presence of at least two melodic voices. Exploring the complexities of these musical concepts can be an intriguing study alongside the emergence of this period and its impact.
