In the panel above is Test 6. 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.
- At c and d, these notes are too low for a generalised men's part.
- At g, the last bass note is not the key note or tonic (E).
- From d to f, although none of the intervals is, in itself, too large, the overall large leap would make this difficult to sing.
Here is a corrected example. There are other correct solutions.
These are the changes:
- At c and d, notes an octave higher have been used. To keep the line singable, a different note is also used at e.
- Allowing for the given part ending on a B, the G in the lower part is a reasonable solution within the four rules. Assuming and accompaniment, a lower, tonic note (E) has been added.
This is an even better version, with passing notes and a dotted rhythm.
