Basic Organization of Music Chapter 8 Answer Key 8.1 a- c 1. Scotland, Lachlann Dubh The tonic is the on the strong beat in bar 1. The tonic appears three times, the dominant twice, all other notes once. The tonic is present for a longer duration (3 beats in total), the dominant for 2.5 beats in total. The other notes last one beat or less. The pickup, first note on a strong beat, and last note form tonic harmony. 2. Yuma Owl Song The tonic is the final note. The tonic is the longest note. All notes but one are in the tonic triad. The other note that gets emphasis is the dominant. 3. American Folk Melody The tonic is the on the strong beat in bar 1. The tonic appears only once. The emphasis is on tonic harmony (all but two notes are in tonic harmony). There are no dominant harmony notes present. 4. Basque, New Mexico The strong beats of the first two bars form tonic harmony. Five of the eight notes are tonic harmony notes. The tonic is repeated in the first bar. 5. Austrian, Silent Night Just like the Yuma Owl Song, but with no tonic present! The harmony tones are strongly suggestive of the tonic, exactly the same way that 6,5 . . . . suggests 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. 6. Hindustani Melody Like the New Mexican melody for the first six notes. Tonic even more strongly suggested by tonic harmony pattern in last two bars. Eight notes out of ten are in tonic harmony. Non-tonic-harmony notes are always on relatively weak part of bar or beat. Last note is tonic.
