Layered passing tones captured by Pattern 2: BWV 255 bar 2 (i) and BWV 320 bar 19 (b) Example 2. −a b ; −d −e ov(a, d), sw(b, e), m(a, b), m(d, e) One can verify that the temporal relations enforced by example Example 2 are indeed consistent with those of a suspension. 5 H and SPP are Distinct Claim 1. SPP ⊆ H: there exists at least one pattern in SPP that has no equivalent in H. Consider the following SPP pattern (also Figure 6iv): Pattern 2. a; b c; d st(a, c), m(a, b), m(c, d) With appropriate pitch relations, the pattern can capture layered passing tones (Figure 7), including pairs of passing tones that do not share the same rhythm: cases when b and d start together (Figure 7i) and cases when they are not synchronized (Figure 7ii).
Before proceeding any further, however, it is first necessary to decide which of the many possible scales we should examine. Clough and Myerson have described important features of the usual diatonic, including cardinality equals variety (CV) and partitioning . In scales that share such features, the cardinalities of the chromatic universe (c for short) and the scale (d for short) relate in one of the following two ways, provided that d is odd: c = 2d − 1 (1) or c = 2d − 2 . 2 The abbreviations “dlen” and “clen” are also from Clough and Douthett.
5. The term “hexachordal” derives from Sch¨ onberg’s use of 6-note chords in a 12-tone chromatic scale, and the name “hexachordal” has been retained even though the theorem holds for arbitrary even n. 2 History The earliest proof of the Hexachordal Theorem in the music literature is, to our knowledge, due to Lewin. In 1959 he published a paper [Lew59] on the intervalic relations of two chords that contained an embryonic proof of the Hexachordal Theorem; such a proof was reﬁned in a subsequent paper [Lew60].
