Du Fay

During the Renaissance Du Fay combined French counterpoint, Italian virtuosi and English harmony. He was born around 1397 to an churchman. There in the church he learns how to compose, and learns about parallel 3rds and 6ths. He took many existing chant lines and harmonized them for the church. His music effected all the emotions, "the temple filled up with sound and it sounded like that angels of heaven had come"
