Another Four-Part Exercise...

Recommended Posts

Hello, my friends

 

I'd like to have your oppinion on this exercise I did. Bass and soprano are fixed and can't be changed. The key is B minor.

 

Thanks

Why not write all four voices from scratch?

Because it's a homework exercise from a textbook/workbook.  It's easier for there to be just one or two correct answers, according to the rules that have been introduced so far in the text, if they limit the variables.

Thanks for the replies.

 

Yes, it's an home work. And what do you think about the solutions I've applied?

It all depends on what topics have already been discussed that you are supposed to be comfortable with applying.  You could write something that sounds really wonderful, but that wouldn't fulfill the point of the exercise.  It's hard to know what solution they are looking for, since we aren't all reading the textbook with you.

Well, the aim of this exercise is to connect triads in root position. Because some of the notes in soprano and bass do not allow this connection to be made according the basic rules, then I needed to find alternatives. What  would like to know is if the alternatives I used are acceptable at the light of four-part writing.

 

Thank you

Your voice leading looks just fine. You connect the V-VI and IV-V properly, and you only keep the doubled third for as long as needed.

You make the tenor leap by a diminished fourth, but that should still be perfectly singable.
