Today I’ll be giving a talk at the Westminster Choral Pedagogy Institute. I’ve been asked to give a brief introduction to modal theory, including construction and cadences. Below are two handouts that I’ve prepared.
The scores we’ll be consulting during the talk are:
“Ave Maria…” – Josquin
“Why Fum’th in Fight” – Tallis
“O Magnum Mysterium” – Victoria
“Mass in G Minor: Kyrie Eleison” – Vaughan Williams
