But, if you've previously established melodic motifs that guide the melody, a motif going from 7 to 5 is entirely appropriate. The purpose of this chapter is to provide a high-level introduction to the topics in the music and computer science fields … Because melody is what's really important, not harmony. Or it's a kind of amorphous mode. Bach Chorale 128. Let's analyze it: This is from Part III of Bach's Christmas Oratorio (it's number 28), and Bach's original scoring includes a basso continuo part that's slightly different from the bass part of the chorale. Works by Bach, other than chorale preludes, using the same hymn tune ... while a Roman numeral indicates a description of the composition in the Vorwort (Preface) of the volume. Thank you. iii6 and bIII+6 can be just alterations of the V chord (Example 9.22 measures 25 and 27), but they (and bIII, see measure 8) could just come up as a result of counterpoint doing its thing. Normally. It's like a baby. It gives you two chord progressions, one in C minor, touching on Eb major, the relative major. This brings up an interesting point about the viiø7 and the viio chords in general, which is that, while they generally act as rootless V7's and V9's, sometimes they actually act like chords built on the 7th degree. Those are all of the consonant chords that may be built on a C. Actually, the 4 is not consonant above the bass, so we could eliminate the last two, the 6 4 chords; we won't, though, because they do appear as dissonant constructions. The bIIIb7 pretty much goes to bII or bvii or vo (measure 9), since the b3 usually descends to b2 in phrygian dominant. Note that there are four possibly diatonic chords on the 7th degree in minor: the bVII7, the bVII#7, the viio7, and the viiø7. It's a matter of taste. Dude, stop poking holes in my code, all right? You have an unstable second inversion ii chord with a 7 added. There are several different ways to use Roman numerals, and different authors have different preferences. The problem is in measure 11, where not only is i65 - iio6 irregular, but the chord of resolution is dissonant while the regular resolution is consonant. The lowest voice, called the Bass (B), functions as the foundation of the harmony. In measures 17-20, there's a circle of fifths sequence in phrygian dominant, but this time, the chords alternate between the 7 and 43 positions. That frees the 1 to go up instead of down, since it's no longer a dissonance. I'd argue that the progression V7 - IV is not functional, but treating the IV as an appoggiatura or passing chord to the I makes it OK. On the other hand, the voice leading is far too irregular. Instead, the A continues in the alto, and the alto then has that G natural that's the b7 in A mixolydian (along with some other rearranging of the original ending). The ambiguous conglomeration of these two chords is called the ii-IV complex. E. The following are examples of Bach chorales. Bach to Basics – Sight-reading a Bach Chorale. And what happens if you omit the root of a V7? There certainly are exceptions. In fact, the phrygian mode is more like phrygian dominant than like minor, for the most part, since the b2 leading tone works the same way in both modes and is their primary feature. We've already talked about the iiø7 chord, but there's a situation in which it doesn't really function as a pre-dominant and goes to i (or I, but we're staying diatonic for now) (measure 35). An accidental by itself in a figured-bass-type figure always refers to the third above the bass. Just because some people don't think that 6 4 chords are real harmony doesn't mean we have to ignore them, right? The G natural is reintroduced, which suggests D major, but measures 8 and 9 are really unclear about the key. Well, I did that, and it sounded bad, so I changed it. The third is often skipped in this chord, and when voiced in three parts, it's actually a iiø43 rather than a iiø42, with the b6 in the bass. The iiio7, on the other hand, is happy to go to iv (measure 11), but note that you could also just analyze it as viio7 in the key of the iv. Note too, as happens all the time in minor key chorales, that the cadences on Bb major sound more like temporary shifts of tonic to the relative major key, prepared in the first case by a viiº7/V and in the second case by a IV chord. The iv7 goes to vø7 just like in minor (well, except that it's V7 in minor, not vø7 — details) (measure 3). Crossing with the bass voice is always annoying, because it changes the analysis to refer to a middle voice as the bass rather than the lowest voice. Looking back, you can kind of justify the C#m as the v64 of F#m, followed by the IV(b7), the viio, and the i, all of F#m. Why do I need to specify the type of chord explicitly, and why would I assume the major scale for music in minor? Right now I want to take a slight detour and talk about the V9 and V7b9 chords. Have 4 students sightread or prepare this Bach Chorale for performance in front of the class. The third is also more of a flavor tone than a meat-and-potatoes tone; just a pinch is enough to give taste to the chord. To get them as an additional part to the score set returnType to “stream”, and add a keyword “analysis … The 4 doesn't need to resolve that badly, and the viio chord can also go to iii sometimes. 2. Dorian was especially common, and this is why we often see (for instance) chorales written in G with only a one-flat key signature. (There are other flavors of triad, but they're dissonant.) The ii - V - I is a strongly tonic-establishing progression, which is why Bach uses it pretty much all the time. The only occurrence of the b7 in the melody is actually hidden away: if you follow the melody of the hymn, you would expect that the A in the soprano in bar 8 would continue rather than go up to C#. This one goes down a fourth and up a second, and some call it the Pachelbel sequence because the first three bars of it show up in Pachelbel's famous Canon in D. In measures 13-20, the same sequence is repeated in minor. On the other hand, some of these voice leading chords are so common that we've kind of adopted them into the functional system, namely the augmented 6th chords. The difference is tiny, but the sixth chord sounds weaker, and you often want that in a pre-dominant chord to set up the strong chords of the V - I. IV6 (and iv6) substitute for the vi (and bVI) as pre-dominants (measures 11 and 15 versus measures 9 and 13), and this is a great thing because vi - V and bVI - V end up with awkward voice leading due to parallels, especially bVI - V, where the b6 going up to 7 is awkward with the augmented second. In modern music, especially in dorian, these chords are very popular, but not so much in Common Practice. U?## u u? Well, if you look, it has both. Bach So the 6 4 chord is in an interesting position: it's technically dissonant, but the intervals in the chord are only dissonant in context because the fourth is only dissonant above the bass due to how it turns the tonicization upside-down. Bach to Basics – Sight-reading a Bach Chorale admin | June 20, 2018. You can therefore use it when necessary without worrying too much, but if the dissonance of the fourth is showing, it has to be prepared and resolved appropriately or it will sound like bad voice leading. The iii7 or bIII7 goes to vi or bVI (measures 2, 6, 10, 14, 21, 23). If I had, then measure 21 would have been iv7 - V - I, a respectable progression, but instead, we have the raised 6th, making a IVb7 (or IVdom7) instead. In the first staff, the bass is C for all of the chords, but in the second staff, the roots vary. Each of the chorales of J.S. The viio chord tends to appear most often in first inversion, because the viio chord in root position sounds very unbalanced due to the 7 being an active tone in the bass that has a dissonance against it (the 4). It's ambiguous and dissonant, but it's not scary or anything like that. It also involves what is sometimes called a cross-relation of the tritone, which is where two notes in different voices form a tritone in adjacent moments, in this case the B in the first chord with the bass F in the second. The viø65 in 15 is chromatic and I don't want to talk about it just yet, but the viø7 in 29 is more usual. The tonic is held over the vø7 chord, acting as a pedal; here, it takes the place of the third of the chord. We see the 2 going down to 1 in measures 2, 6, and 10 (where the 2 is the F, since we're resolving in Eb major), and it goes up to b3 (or 3) in measures 3, 4, 8, and 12. So, you know what I said about Roman numerals being uppercase or lowercase depending on the flavor? Given the range, if we remember our Gregorian modes, this hymn is in Mode VIII, hypomixolydian! In the bass... well, how about this, the bass should go G - F - E, making the F a passing tone, but it ends with C instead, which is OK because you already have F resolving to E in the tenor. Backdoor progression to iii.png 981 × 347; 16 KB. 3 in G minor. Write the Roman numeral analysis of each chord and indicate the position-6 if in first inversion, if in second. The b3 of the bVI7 generally goes down to b2 (measure 19), but it doesn't really have to (measure 13). Bach Chorale No.3 Ach Gott und Herr BWV 255. The Roman numeral, on the other hand, is an analysis: you need to look at the chord and figure out which note is the root. This example had some 7th chords too. Bach chorales, from music theorists and theory students interested in studying the Bach chorale style or in using the chorales in the classroom, to musicologists and Bach scholars interested in the most up-to-date research on the chorales, to choral directors and organists interested in performing the chorales, to amateur Bach-lovers alike. Answer to Analysis.1. Therefore, the viio6 is also a great choice when harmonizing a melody with a 4 that goes up to 5. It's used in first inversion in measures 2 and 4, but it could easily have been in root position instead. It checks out. The fourth with the bass is a dissonance. The next two are 6 3 chords; both intervals may be major or minor, but the interval between them must be consonant as well. The same can then apply to all other harmonies. The dissonant 7th is in the bass, making for an active bass line, and it pretty much has to resolve to the I6 (or i6), since that dissonance resolves down (measures 10, 16, Example 9.28 measure 7). It's generally a bad idea to put too much emphasis on active tones, because they call so much attention to themselves already that the sound becomes unbalanced. I went with the latter in measures 5-8 and 13-16, and you can see that these are all complete chords. While iv7 can go to bVII, it usually doesn't; the usual way the IV7 and iv7 go is to V (Example 9.38 measures 19, 21), which you'll recall is pretty similar to the viio anyway. We're doing analysis, and that means that we're writing down the important information so that we can discover patterns. In the V9 chord (including the V7b9), there are two dissonant notes: the 7th, which resolves down, and the ninth, which also resolves down. An arrival on a I6 or i6 is a weak arrival (measures 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 12, Example 9.20 measures 6 and 10, Example 9.22 measure 21) and is not generally used to finish a piece of music, but rather, it's an intermediate arrival. We could go the route of using only uppercase numerals and letting the reader figure out the flavor of the chord from context. With augmented chords, it's even simpler, because an inverted augmented triad is the same augmented triad. It follows the logic of the old phrygian mode, where the final cadence was bvii - I, major third there at the end. However, function is precisely what such an analysis does address--when I said it's a secondary dominant (V7/iv) that's just shorthand for precisely what you're saying about increasing harmonic intensity as the harmony moves to the pre-dominant. The ii7 (and iiø7) come up quite a lot. I especially enjoyed your description of the coda and identification of the sequential gestures. This is, unfortunately, one of those times when Roman numeral notation is inadequate, but we can really just worry about this problem when we get there. The bVI is the relative major and it doesn't have much of a place in phrygian dominant to begin with, but you can have a bVI7 or bVI7#5 go to a dominant (measures 13, 15). Doubling the third is common too; it doesn't unbalance the chord like doubling the third does in a root position triad. In measure 6 we have a IV6/V. Since we've exhausted the diatonic supply in C, let's move on to other notes and other keys. The bII7, by virtue of having a 1, is relegated to pre-dominancy (measures 5, 19). When in first inversion (6 3), it's usually weaker and serves a more middle-of-the-phrase purpose. For most of these, I had to agonize a bit over how to voice the chords. If the 2 goes to the 5, that's parallel fifths. As a functional chord, the viio7 works... as expected. The chord sounds no different from a bII6 or a vø42. What is unusual about it, and why can Bach not treat this dissonance as he has in the previous two fingerprints? i have a problem and it says Do a roman numeral analysis for the following mode D-7 BbMaj7 G-7 C7 D-7 A-7 E-7(b5) D-7 ? The standard resolution of a seventh chord is to the chord with root up a fourth, so I65 - ii6 is a little irregular, but it's fine because ii6 is consonant and is only one note away from IV. In measure 18, the bIII+64 is used to go to bVI6, since going to i would involve too little movement. There's some other stuff going on, but from the F chord in bar 7 to the Ab chord in bar 10, every note in the bass is harmonized with a sixth chord (or a 6 5 chord), so we have a iiø65 to i6 to bVII6 to bVI65 to v6 to iv6 (with passing chords in between in some cases). At this point, you don't know enough to connect chords correctly, because we're focusing on analysis in this chapter as opposed to synthesis, but try doing what I did: come up with your own examples for each use of the diatonic chords in root position and in first inversion, and try to make them sound good and have no parallel fifths or octaves. Well, it wasn't just luck. The cadential 6 4 can also be used at a half cadence (measure 24) on the V. Technically speaking, the cadential 6 4 can be used anywhere, not necessarily just the cadence, but that's its most common use. This chord is therefore ii6. ; CA - 1 pt. This also solves the problem of parallel fifths with the b2 and b6 resolving to 1 and 5, respectively, if you find that sort of thing to be a problem (honestly, I'm OK with them in this case). But for now, we have one triad inversion left: 5 3 chords and 6 3 chords are used freely, with both types used for variety. So I'm going to stick with the viio's, thank you very much. You can't get a complete V9 in a four-voice texture to sound all at once, but who says you need to stick to four voices, and who says all of the notes need to sound at once? Functional harmony exists within a tonal system, where the notes of the scale have their own tendencies, especially relative to the chords. Measure 18 in particular has this effect in minor, which is one of the few situations in Common Practice harmony when you might get an mM7 chord. Media in category "Roman numeral analysis" The following 185 files are in this category, out of 185 total. The second chord is a natural choice for a 7th chord, since it then goes up a step, which is the alternate resolution for 7th chords in general. And dissonant chords like diminished or augmented chords follow different rules entirely. It resolves to I (or i) (measures 1, 2, 10, 12). I tend to ignore ninths anyway and just pretend that they're 7th chords unless the 9th is particularly important. The roman numeral analysis is done for you (this is a tricky "twelve-tone" chorale passage), except for the figured bass identifying TWO suspensions.Use the roman numeral analysis to help guide you in identifying the suspensions and labeling the correct figured bass.These suspensions are not as straight forward as the examples we did in class. ...The kind of harmony that allows you to stick Roman numerals under it. The chords without the raised 6th and raised 7th are obviously diatonic. Write something about yourself. All that stuff I said about how unstable the 6 4 chords are in a mostly consonant sense? The underlying assumption of Roman numeral analysis is that the most important of the two pieces of information is the root, so the third chord above is an A minor chord even though the bass is C. The problem is, as we'll see, that other factors complicate things, because it's not always clear just what note the root happens to be. Write the Roman numeral analysis of each chord and indicate the position-6 if in first inversion, if in second. It's definitely a pre-dominant, though. Both chords can serve as pre-dominants, though, and they readily go to V (measures 27, 37). In keyboard works, this is kind of irrelevant, but when you can follow the voices individually, you tend to hear the bass as the bass even if the tenor is currently lower. BAIN MUSC 116 Music Theory II. In several cultures' musics, including Spanish music and Ashkenazic Jewish music, major, minor, and phrygian dominant are the three principal modes. The 3 of the bVI7#5 does have to go up to avoid an augmented interval. These add up to four different chords: 7 5 3, 6 5 3, 6 4 3, and 6 4 2: These four kinds of chords come with shorthand: the 7 5 3 is written simply as 7, the 6 5 3 is written simply as 6 5, the 6 4 3 is written simply as 4 3, and the 6 4 2 is written simply as either 4 2 or just 2. Bach's list. This chorale had a bit of weirdness, and as we move into the Classical and Romantic periods we start seeing some different chords added to the toolbox, but the way we do a Roman numeral analysis is going to be basically the same for any genre. . The 7th in the bVI7 doesn't resolve down either for the same reason. The remaining diminished chords (vio64 in measure 13, iiio64 in measure 15) are already only occasional sonorities, so they too are not changed by being in second inversion. Each chorale is analyzed and annotated showing key centers, modulations, Roman numeral analyses, and non-chord tones. You can hear it with Bach's own score! That said, the Em does make more sense as a ii in D, which wouldn't involve any borrowing. The v is the minor dominant, and it's relatively uncommon in Common Practice music, but it does show up. You generally wouldn't double the 7 because it's an active tone, but you can totally double the 4 (measure 1) or the 2 (measure 3). The ii and IV are quite similar especially when the ii is in first inversion, and they can be sort of interchangeable in the pre-dominant position. The V42 chord is quite common. If you use the chord in other ways, it's no longer functional. Bach often used modal melodies to write these chorales. Over time, people realized that inserting a note between the 1 and 3 of the chord makes the dissonance difficult to resolve, and same for between the 3 and 5 or between the 4 and 6 or between the 6 and 8. We need to understand the non-harmonic tones to properly understand what's actually in the chord. Some authors just call it the VI. Figuring out the root is actually a form of analysis; it's not just trivial labeling. Bach Cello Suite BWV 1007. I think my way is less confusing. The "evaded cadence" is in measure 16, where the expected V - I becomes V - I6 by means of a passing tone in the bass. Will the hero arrive on time? It's possible this chorale is really in E Dorian, since that "extra" C♯ in the key signature would be the characteristic Dorian scale degree. Another possibility would have been iv64 or iv43, but these chords usually need a bit more care. We're taking a moment here to talk about it! The fact is that these features of a random Bach chorale are present in Western music in general, not just the Common Practice stuff, not just the classical stuff. c) Describe in detail the harmonic device used in the soprano part in this fingerprint. This is great for AP Theory or college level classes to reinforce sight-reading and to work on theoretical analysis. And if you omit the root of a V9 or V7b9? b) The penultimate chord contains a seventh. This is a great resource for anyone studying the Bach Chorales for a deeper understanding of harmony from the Master himself. I added an anticipation to put 7th chords on the downbeats too. So here are the chords: Remember the circle of fifth sequence from Example 9.22? Also in this example, in measures 5-12, is another sequence. In text, I'll write bIII+ instead of bIII#5, but in analysis, the #5 is probably more useful. knowledge related to the Chorales and the ability of various models to approxi-mate the complex tasks of harmonic analysis and melodic harmonization. Doubling the 3 in the first chord of measure 1 sounds nice because the 3 is stable, but in a bIII+ chord, the b3 is less stable due to its tendency towards the 2, so in measure 3 I decided to double the 5 instead, which necessitated changing the rest of the voicings. Still, doing a Roman numeral analysis on a chorale is easy, the piece is short, and there's a lot of stuff there to learn. For people who write Vo to represent a rootless dominant, viiø7 - iii would actually be written VII7 - III instead of Vo9 - III. We said earlier that the v7 has no dominant use in Common Practice minor, due to the b7 needing to move down within the mode. Lable all non-chord tones. 21 and 23 are different in that 21 uses the b7 and 23 uses the 7. The fun bit is at 26, when the ascending B natural and descending Bb happen at the same time, causing a cross-relation and creating that delicious diminished octave between the bass B and the alto Bb (well, it's two octaves, but who cares). (I've even seen some use an m for minor, so what I call the ii chord becomes the IIm chord, but that's not my style.) The third chord has an A root and its third is minor, so it's an A minor triad. THe reason it's problematic is because the 1 in the ii7 (any inversion) resolves to the 7, so if the bass also goes to the 7, you're doubling the leading tone, and that doesn't usually sound very good. The C6 and Em6 are better thought of as added-sixth chords, which is an important but subtle distinction. I think this obscures the harmony and what's really going on. We'll talk about modulation later in the chapter, but D has a G natural while A has a G#, and you can tell when the modulation happens by tracking its introduction. Music Theory II. Go here [pdf] to download and print Bach Chorale #27. (And the YouTube channel 12tone does IIm instead of ii. If it's the same for other genres, why are we analyzing Bach chorales in the first place? 150, Terry No. Where it goes just depends on how you want to voice the chord of the resolution. In measure 2, I opted to not bother about non-harmonic tones. Interestingly, the second eighth note does not have the 7th, so I could have done some funky figured bass to accurately notate these chords. ; Cadence type - 2 pts. The 6 4 chord, on the other hand, is not. A little bit of chromaticism was necessary in measure 17 to prevent an augmented second, but as long as we keep that b2, we don't lose that freygish feeling we love. The starting I chord reminds us that we're in A, not E, but E is on display for the first three chords, a I - V - I in E (so it's V6 - V65/V - V in A), but then the G natural comes back, so you could think about this as having modulated to D. To me, D here is just tonicized by the V42/IV on beat 4, but then weird stuff happens in measure 8. Again, it could go to IV or iv instead if you wanted it to (measure 32); it's just a less regular resolution. For the first 20 chorales in the Riemenschneider numbering system, there are professionally annotated roman numeral analyses in romanText format, courtesy of Dmitri Tymoczko of Princeton University. Ergh, you're poking holes in my argument. U?# u & # U Explain the "parallel 5ths." We have it in root position (measure 13), first inversion (measure 16), and second inversion (measure 17), where the bass would normally require going to I6 but here it goes to I in root position instead, and the listener is not disappointed. But then I wouldn't get to talk about modal interchange, so hey! Improvements made aimed to expand the reach of the algorithm, which was initially implemented specifically with Bach chorales in mind, to the broader period of common practice art music and the homophonic choral … The other, obvious way to get a 7 in the bass is to use a ii42 or iiø42 (measures 15, 17). I ended up making the third chord a V7 to help alleviate some of the issues, and the Eb can just go up to the F; the weirdness, though, is that the doubled Ab goes down all the way to D, a tritone leap, and that melodically requires that the next step in that voice be in the opposite direction, so we end up with the voicing of the i in measure 14 with doubled root and third but no fifth. 21.4 Roman numeral analysis with figured bass. bIII6 would be the regular bIII major triad in first inversion, but this one is augmented. In fact, I called them 7th chords here — and I labeled beat 3 of measure 33 as a bIII+6 — but I probably shouldn't have, since the dissonances are non-harmonic. I wonder who that is.) If you need to, double the fifth. It's less satisfying, but it's the compromise composers tend to take. The way we've been thinking about minor, we raise the 7th over a V chord and we raise the 6th when necessary to avoid augmented seconds, but the way we think of minor melodically is that the 7th is raised when the melody is ascending, requiring the raised 6th, and it's lowered back when the melody is descending, requiring the lowered 6th (measures 13 and 18, measure 26 in the alto). That's why in measure 9, the ii43 goes down to V7 instead of up to V65. bwv00106pno.pdf: File Size: 47 kb: File Type: pdf: Download File. The vi in major especially serves as an alternate tonal center for variety, since it's the relative minor of the I (measure 6). v6 is especially common in descending bass lines in minor (Example 9.23 measure 1), since descending lines tend to use the lowered 7th. And also the voice leading sometimes works much better that way, and some chords actually sound better not in root position. The iv7 can go to bVII (measures 9, 13), but the IV7 doesn't generally go to viio (measures 1, 5) because that's up a tritone rather than a perfect fourth.
