In the panel above is Test 3. It sounds like this:
Whenever the top panel changes, the audio example plays the latest version of the test.
Spot the errors, within the framework of the 4 rules listed earlier. The red soprano part is the given part, the black alto notes the added part.
- Notes at d and e are far higher than the average soprano would be happy with.
- Although the high Gs at c, f, and g are just within the soprano range, three close together would be a great strain.
- At g, there is a 5th between the two parts.
Here is a corrected example. There are other correct solutions.
These are the changes:
- The high lying soprano part has been lowered to a much more comforable range.
- At g, the 5th has been replaced by an 8ve.
This is an even better version, using an auxiliary note, a passing note, and a pair of plain crotchets moving by step have become a dotted rhythm. Also
on the assumption that this might be accompanied, the final chord has a 3rd added so that it is not so bare. (The diamond note.)
