The Middle Ages helped influence all the music we listen to today. It provided the first type of music and was a building block for more types of music to come in the future like music from the Renaissance era. Artists like Lonin and Perotin were very important to music history and are remembered for their great work today.
There is very little music related to gregorian chant from the middle ages but organ music sounds a lot like it. The organ music has no vocals like gregorian chant. They both use very few instruments like the single organ. The music was very slow paced in both the organ music and gregorian chant.
