This final section provides an anthology to complement parts of the textbook with a large number of examples.


While there are no prerequisites as such, these anthology chapters clearly relate to specific textbook chapters. The most relevant textbook chapters are always identified here so you can easily move back and forth between textbook and anthology.


The chapters focus on:

  1. Tonal (primarily chromatic) harmony. Sub-sections of the chapter provide examples of specific chords like the augmented and Neapolitan sixths and links to scores online that can be played, downloaded etc.
  2. Notable metric concepts
  3. Twelve-tone rows in the repertoire

Other info

As the chapters note, these anthologies draw together examples identified bu human analysts. You should expect to agree with some and disagree with others.
