Early Neoclassicism had a distinctly Italian sound. The music was often dark, with large, bold figures surrounded by large expanses of light. The music was often composed with long, flat lines and a minimalist setting. The themes and subjects varied widely, but were often based on ancient literature and medieval legends. Biblical and historical scenes were increasingly painted with a classical tone. The scenes were often selected to convey a moral message.
