  • Points to Remember: 1. Compound Melody or Polyphonic Melody = single melody that suggests 2 independent lines (for Schenker found in nearly all music) 2. Melodies, esp. leaps, imply motion to /from inner voices. 3. Ascending leaps sometimes result from an inner voice being flipped into a higher register 4. Corollary to 3: the structural melodic line does not always have to include the highest tone. 5. Archetype for antecedent/consequent phrases = incomplete descent from tone of tonic triad to ^2 followed by complete descent from same note to ^1
