Compose an 8-bar example of free two-part, fifth species counterpoint for a keyboard instrument, with the voices sharing motivic material. In your example, please make sure to touch upon all species. Indicate all dissonance types and interval numbers. Please compose the piece in 4/4, in the key of A minor.
Compose an 8-bar example of two-part, fifth species counterpoint for a keyboard instrument, invertible at the octave. In this instance, the first four measures will present the first phrase, and the second four measures will present the first phrase again, but inverted at the octave, with a proper cadence at the end. In your example, please make sure to touch upon all species. Be mindful of any special considerations for invertible counterpoint at the octave. Indicate all dissonance types and interval numbers. Please compose the piece in 4/4, in the key of Bb major.
Compose a 6-bar example of three-part counterpoint for woodwinds (soprano, alto, bass). Please label these intervals accordingly : topmost line A-S, middle line B-S, bottom line B-A. Indicate dissonance types, and demonstrate the use of the varieties of consonant fourths. This piece will be in 4/4, C major, on three staves.
Compose an 8–bar example of a ground bass, with two upper parts on top (thus, three parts). Compose these two upper lines in an imitative style, each borrowing motivic material from the other. Interval numbers and dissonance types do not have to be indicated, however, please pay special attention in this instance to harmonic function, and therefore the proper use of “non-chord tones”. This piece will be for strings, so, three parts in total, one bass, plus two melodic parts, on three staves. Compose the piece in 3/4, G minor. The piece should constitute one iteration of the entire bass cycle.
