Read the following passage and mark the letter A, B, C, or D on your answer sheet to
indicate the correct answer to eachof the questions from 26 to 35.
Accustomed though we are to speaking of the films made before 1927 as “silent,” the film has
never been, in the full sense of the word, silent. From the very beginning, music was regarded as an
indispensable accompaniment; when the Lumiere films were shown at the first public film exhibition
in the Unites States in February 1896, they were accompanied by piano improvisations on popular
tunes. At first, the music played bore no special relationship to the films; an accompaniment of any
kind was sufficient. Within a very short time, however, the incongruity of playing lively music to a
solemnfilm became apparent, and film pianists began totake some care in matching their pieces to
the mood of the film.
As movie theaters grew in number and importance, a violinist, and perhaps a cellist, would be
added to the pianist in certain cases, and in the larger movie theaters small orchestras were formed.
For a number of years the selection of music for eachfilm program rested entirely in the hands of the
conductor or leader of the orchestra, and very often the principal qualification for holding such a
position was not skill or taste so much as the ownership of a large personal library of musical pieces.
Since the conductor seldom saw the films until the night before they were to be shown (if, indeed,
the conductor was lucky enough to see themthen), the musical arrangement was normally
improvised in the greatest hurry.
To help meet this difficulty, film distributing companies started the practice of publishing
suggestions for musical accompaniments. In 1909, for example, the Edison Company began issuing
with their films such indications of mood as “pleasant,” “sad,” “lively.” The suggestions became more
explicit, and so emerged the musical cue sheet containing indications of mood, the titles of suitable
pieces of music, and precise directions to show where one piece led into the next.

Certain films had music especially composed for them. The most famous of these early special
scoreswas that composed and arranged for D.W. Griffith’s film Birth of a Nation, which was released
in 1915.
Question 26:The passage mainly discusses music that was ________.
A. specifically composed for certain movie theaters
B. recorded during film exhibitions

A. They incorporated the sound of the actors’ voices.
B. They were accompanied bysymphonic orchestras.
C. They corresponded to specific musical compositions.
D. They were truly “silent.”
Question 28:The word “solemn” in paragraph 1 is closest in meaning to ________.
A. serious B. well-scripted C. inaudible D. formal
Question 29:It can be inferred that orchestra conductors who worked in movie theaters needed to
A. have pleasant voices B. be familiar with a wide variety of music
C. be able to play many instruments D. be able to compose original music
Question 30:The word “them” in paragraph 2 refers to ________.
A. years B. films C. hands D. pieces
Question 31:According to the passage, what kindof business was the Edison Company?
A. It published musical arrangements. B. It produced electricity.
C. It made musical instruments. D. It distributed films.
Question 32:It can be inferred from the passage that the first musical cue sheets appeared around
A. 1909 B. 1896 C. 1915 D. 1927
Question 33:Which of the following notations is most likely to have been included on a musical cue
sheet of the early 1900’s?
A. “Piano, violin” B. “Calm, peaceful”
C. “Key of C major” D. “Directed by D.W. Griffith”
Question 34:The word “scores” in paragraph 3 is closest in meaning to ________.
A. totals B. successes
C. musical compositions D. groups of musicians
Question 35:The passage probably continues with a discussion of ________.
A. silent films by other directors
B. other films directed by D.W. Griffith
