4th Species Above Cantus
What I like: For as much as I don’t like this particular cantus, I do like this counterpoint. I think it does all the sorts of things that this exercise is supposed to do.
What I don’t like: Too much C. I don’t think I get enough departure from that tonic note.
4th Species Below Cantus
What I like: Ficta! Boom. I also love the descending line. It makes me happy. This is also my last 4th species exercise. That makes me happy, too.
What I don’t like: That range is outside the realm of good taste. I could have come up with something more restricted but I’m itching to get on to free composition.
