Form & Analysis


Music of the II Viennese School

Webern - from Drei Lieder nach Gedichte von Hildegard Jone, op. 25 (1934)

Wolf - "Der Mond hat eine schwere Klag erhoben" from Italienisches Liederbuch


Music of the Impressionists

Debussy - "Sarabande" from Images Oubliees




Procedure: Each midi file will begin the same: with the chorale's opening voicing played for 4 beats, then each voice of the opening chord broken and performed "Bass" to "Tenor" to "Alto" to "Soprano."

A "click-track" will then follow. If the chorale does not contain an "anacrusis," then you'll hear only the number of clicks that match one full measure of the meter. (e.g., 4/4 meter = 4 clicks). However, some chorales begin with an anacrusis. Then the click-track will click off one full measure of beats, plus an additional partial measure of clicks leading up to the entrance of the anacrusis.


All chorale voices will be played (in simple meter) at:  Quarter note = 40 MM.
