#beginquote# Yes, I would have to agree with Taciturn...you see......years of very narrow and regimented contrapuntal rules were actually, created by the study of great master's compositions. In other words, even Bach had broken some of the "rules" of voice leading....parallel fifth and definitly direct, or more (Walter Piston termed)...hidden octaves countless times... I studied Shankarian analysis...and when I didn't place a certain note on a graph that Bach never included in the music in that measure, I was told...that it "existed" due to the need to fulfill a rule....guideline, more specifically, the D in the soprano would have fulfilled a 3, 2, 1 decent back to the tonic, during a implied perfect authentic cadence. Who really cared what Bach actually wrote anyhow?....hehe....hope this wasn't to technical...Adam www.craneclassical.com #endquote#
