Simple Prelude Outline

We will now begin to structure our simple prelude. Lets begin with the bass:

  • Opening pattern – Clausula Cantizans or do-do-ti-do in the bass.
  • Descending sequence
  • Closing pattern – a clausula formalis perfectissima with the Bass Clausula in the bottom voice. We’ll actually use two of them to make the ending sound more complete.

You can practice this bass in any key using Keyboard Buddy Unit 1-6
