Vox Humana Posted January 6, 2008 Share Posted January 6, 2008 Recently I have been looking at three French pieces for organ: Decq - Cantlène Nuptiale (second piece here) Dubois - Cantilène Nuptiale (no.11 of his 12 Pièces) Rousseau - Melodie (no.6 of his 12 Pièces; page 38 here) All are accompanied melodies in 3/4 time and all share the same rhythmic figure in the left-hand accompaniment, a rising arpeggio on the first beat, ending on the second, followed by a chord on the third. I am wondering: were these composers simply copying each other or, as I suspect, is this some traditional pattern of accompaniment for something, perhaps played on a guitar? If so, what? Anyone know any other similar pieces? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
