Are the Intervals, as found in the Diatonic Scale, unchangeable 1.... 59. Can an interval be chromatically altered without being modified t What is the effect of Transposition on an interval?....60. What effect has chromatic alteration, in its usual sense, on an interval?....61. What is the limit of the chromatic alteration or modification of an interval? What are the effects?....62. How is a minor changed into a major interval? A major into a minor interval? How does this modification accidentally effect the transposition of intervals? (Remark.)....63. What is it, to diminish a minor interval? How is it done? What minor intervals are, in practice, never diminished? (Remarks 2 and 3.) What does diminution necessarily imply? Explain the answer. (Remark 2.)....64. What is it to augment a major interval?....65. How is augmentation effected? Why does augmentation necessarily involve the use of the chromatic signs? (Remark 2.) What intervals are, in practice, never augmented? (Remark 3.)....66. Give a summary of this chapter. CHAPTER IX., Inversion of Intervals. 67. To invert an interval is to transpose one of its two tones by the Octave, the result being that the same two tones form another interval as to denomination and kind. Simple change in the order of the two tones, as in Fig. 37, does not effect inversion, but merely makes a descending out of an ascending interval, or vice-versa. 68. The rule of inversion is this: transpose the lower tone an Octave higher, or the upper tone an Octavef lower, so that the tone which was the upper is now the. lower. The following are examples: The Inversion of intervals is in some works...show more
