Flashcards in Chapter 5 Deck (11):
1

melodic progression rules

1. If there is a note that is common to both chords, try to keep it in the same voice
2. If there is no note common, each voice should move to the nearest note of the next chord
3. No voice may move an augmented/diminished interval (watch for augmented 4 and 2 in minor)
4. The leading note must always rise a semitone to the tonic

2

Harmonic progression

1. No 2 voices may move in parallel perfect 1/5/8
2. Voices must not overlap between consecutive chords (ex: alto can't be higher than soprano or lower than tenor
3. Overlaps are ONLY acceptable with two positions of the same chord
4. If necessary, omit the 5th and replace with another root to prevent consecutive 5/8.

3

perfect cadence

V-I; final cadence

4

perfect cadence V-I resolution

1. write 2 bass notes first
2. write notes of the V chord, doubling the root
3. 3rd* of the V chord (leading note; rises to tonic)
4. 5 falls a step to tonic, 8 falls a step to 3rd of tonic chord
5. 5 of tonic chord is omitted; root is repeated 3 times

5

perfect cadence V7-I resolution

1. write 2 bass notes first
2. write notes of the V7 chord, no note doubled
3. 3 of V7 chord (leading note; rises to tonic)
4. 5 falls a step to tonic, 7 falls a step to 3rd of tonic chord

6

plagal cadence

IV-I ; final cadence

7

plagal cadence resolution

1. write the 2 bass notes first
2. write the notes of the IV chord, doubling the root
3. the note in common ( 5th of IV, root of I ) stays in the same voice, each remaining voice falls to the next chord

Note notes omitted; no leading-note in either chord = no accidentals in minor key

8

Imperfect cadence

Major: I-V, IV-5, ii-V
Minor: i-V, iv-V

Not a final cadence; weak-strong or strong-weak; end of phrases. Remember to raise the 3rd of the dominant chord in minor keys.

9

Imperfect cadence resolution I-V, i-V

1. Write the notes of the tonic chord, doubling the root
2. the note in common stays (5th of I, root of V) in the same voice
3. All remaining notes fall to the closest available note in the next chord

No notes omitted; if key is minor raise 3 of V chord

10

Imperfect cadence resolution IV-V, iv-V

1. Write the notes of the IV or iv chord, doubling the root, then
2. bass note moves up a tone
3. ALL notes above the bass fall (contrary motion to base)

No notes omitted; if key is minor raise 3 of V chord

11

Imperfect cadence resolution ii-V

1. write the notes of the ii chord, doubling the root, then
2. bass note moves either up or down to the root of the V chord
3. ALL notes above the bass fall to the closest available note in the next chord

No notes omitted; watch for augmented 2nd
