Many ethnographic studies demonstrate that music is a participatory, community-based activity. 75 76 Music is experienced by individuals in a range of social settings ranging from being alone to attending a large concert, forming a music community , which cannot be understood as a function of individual will or accident; it includes both commercial and non-commercial participants with a shared set of common values. Musical performances take different forms in different cultures and socioeconomic milieus. In Europe and North America, there is often a divide between what types of music are viewed as a ” high culture ” and ” low culture” “High culture” types of music typically include Western art music such as Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and modern-era symphonies, concertos, and solo works, and are typically heard in formal concerts in concert halls and churches, with the audience sitting quietly in seats.

One can actually make out the segments of the dome that were replaced parts that fell in the 10th (upper side) and 14th centuries (lower side). 80% of the mosaic in the dome is still there, 20% has been replaced with paint and plaster that has become discolored. Much of this work dates from 1894-1907 so it is not old and very recent. Humidity and pollution are also causing some of the surviving Byzantine gold mosaic to shed its protective layer and ‘tarnish’. Tomaino, C. (2013).
