Melodies illustrating tonicization of III in minor keys(sample-3.htm)

Lab Review for Week 3 (MUS 114)

Next Week


Full Setting of Bach, "Herzliebster"

S | A | T | B

Melody 4: Schumann, "Schusslied des Narren"

Directions and Help

  • Note the key in which each melody begins. How is this sense of tonic reinforced?

  • Mark in each melody where we begin to get a sense of a new key area. How does each composer clearly establish III as a temporary tonic?

  • Sing through each melody with solfège syllables. Where can you switch to a new do to elucidate the new key area (and, coincidentally, to make your job easier)? Where can you switch back to the original do (if at all)?
