V. Read the text and choose the best answer.

The period from the defeat of the Spanish Armada to the death of James I represents one of Europe’s most brilliant “golden ages”.

Elizabethan civilisation was the fruit of an exceptionally favourable political and social union. The year 1588, which saw the defeat of the “Invincible Armada”, ushered in an age inspired by a new sense of self-confidence and optimism. It was really from this moment that music and theatre began to spread their wings. In the theatre for which Shakespeare wrote, music held an important place, and composers actively collaborated in plays which they enriched with numerous music pieces accompanied on the lute or viols. Unfortunately, owing to the essentially ephemeral nature of the occasion, much of this music is now lost.

But perhaps one of the most remarkable features of the Elizabethan age was the popularity of music making. In a period when public concerts were still unknown, the abundance of musical publications is explained by the great demand for music by amateurs. Everyone sang madrigals, most sizeable households possessed a chest of viola, and the virginal for which the keyboard composers poured out flood of fine music , was still more popular. As for the lute, such was its popularity that it was even to be found in barbers’ shops, so that customers might pluck a few chords while awaiting their turn. Any young man unable to take his proper place in a vocal or instrumental concert became a laughing-stock of the society.

Religious music plays a definitely lesser role compared with the preceding period, even though it is represented by the masterpieces of Byrd and Gibbons.
