The rise of Humanism led to the creation of secular music based on texts in vernacular languages. In this chapter, the various national genres are surveyed: French chanson (both vers mesurée and program chanson), German Lied, Psalter, Frottola, madrigal, and the derivative larger forms of Intermedium and Madrigal Comedy. Individual composers highlighted include Claude le Jeune, Jakob Arcadelt, Cypriano de Rore, Luca Marenzio, Don Carlo Gesualdo, and Adriano Banchieri.

Keywords:   chanson, program chanson, vers mesurée, Lied, Psalter, Madrigal, Madrigal Comedy
