Four-Part Harmony, with emphasis on Bach Chorales, is a new textbook, written in an accessible style specifically for students studying harmony as part of an A-Level music course, theory examination, or undergraduate degree module.

Fully indexed and cross-referenced throughout, this succinct book starts with basic concepts such as triad inversions, cadences and voice leading, and progresses systematically through to sevenths, unessential notes and chromatic harmony. Detailed appendices are also included on understanding intervals and key signatures.

Unusually for books at this level, it also contains information on advanced topics such as diminished sevenths and secondary dominants.

This is not just a set of exercises, but a concise explanation of what students need to know to pass a typical examination paper. The material can also be used as a starting point for learning the art of composition.

Each topic is illustrated with a range of suitable examples with chord indications marked, and clear guidelines are given on how to use the elements to harmonise a chorale melody in the style of J. S. Bach.
