Year 12 Homework w/c 2nd October

Starting Points Theory (For Friday’s lesson – I will take in booklets and look at the cadence work from last week as well)

Please complete exercise F2. We have analyzed the progession in F1 in class and found it to be ii6 I6/4 V I and the idea is that you use exactly this progression. A couple of things to note:

  • pay attention to leaps in the parts, spacing and doubling
  • the ii does NOT have seventh unlike some of the others we have done
  • the soprano part is not the same as F1 but the chord progression should be

Composition task (for submission end of Tuesday on Sibelius)

Please complete a cadential passage for string quartet that meets the following criteria:

  1. the chord progression must be I6  ii6 I6/4 V I
  2. melody must be in violin 1 with a simple accompaniment in violin 2, viola and cello (either follow a model as simple as those on p. 21 of the starting points booklet or look at these textures)
  3. final cadence must be in root position in bass with stepwise progression to the root of the tonic in the violin 1 part
  4. Just as in four-part work as above, you need to take care of spacing, doubling and leaping.
