Test 5

In the panel above is Test 5. 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 upper part is the given part, the black lower notes the added part.

  1. At b and d, there is a 4th between the parts.
  2. At e and f, the notes are too low for a general men's part.

Here is a corrected example. There are other correct solutions.

Click here to see the correction.

These are the changes:

  1. At b, the interval has been changed to an 8ve. This gives consecutive 8ves from a to b but, as they stay at the same pitch, this is acceptable.
  2. At e and f, higher notes are used.

This is an even better version. Auxiliary and passing notes are used and, at the bare final chord, a 3rd has been added for the accompaniment to use.
