21 Quartal Harmony I TBk2

This chapter introduces an easy way to incorporate quartal harmony (chords comprised of fourths) into praise choruses & hymns.  The unique & valuable symbol, C2Q (from bottom up: D.G.C), is introduced and explained. Another way to think of this is to use numbers in the scale. The scale degrees, 258, would also represent a quartal chord.  Quartals sound particularly good with the third in the bass (eg., C2Q/E). Examples, exercises, assignments are offered.

15 KImprovBk1 – Major Ninth (no third)

Major ninth chords with no third occur with regularity in contemporary worship choruses. They are bright sounding. Like the rock alternating harmonies, they are helpful in projecting a degree of tension—even power. You probably won’t find them in any hymnal though.
