Probably a better analysis as you can clearly hear the resolution going back to your I chord within the 1st phrase.D.Cass wrote:Another veiw point would be the second chord is a Csus4 in 2nd inversion, G in the bass. This makes it a I to IV chord with the G being pedaled. Very common in american folk and gospel music. The I to IV becomes very dominant toward the end of the piece. Resulting in a series of plagal cadences, " the amen cadence". This gives it a hymn like vibe to the composition.
Because the piece is essential a 4 part choral (the subtitle "coral" alludes to this), the bass notes need to be taken into consideration when you look at the harmony. The difference is that the basses aren't moving with the rhythm of the upper 3 voices.uptempo wrote:But I get the point about the bass running through the study as being some indicator to the structure.
