Modal Counterpoint in the Style of the 16th Century Prepared by Vaclav Nelhybel

Modal Counterpoint in the Style of the 16th Century Prepared by Vaclav Nelhybel

Musician and educator Vaclav Nelhybel designed this instructional introduction to modal 16th-century counterpoint to explain the principles of two- , three- , and four-part counterpoint to students. Topics covered include tritones, the cantus firmus, consonance and dissonance, rhythmic emphasis, and double counterpoint; they are demonstrated with short example phrases and longer compositions by Palestrina and other 16th-century composers. The presentation is narrated by William Geib with Alexandre Barta on piano and a seven-member choral ensemble. Liner notes are a written transcription of the spoken instruction and include sheet music for played examples.
