Pantomine Dance

Top melody line echoes while bass and inner voices are altered to create dissonance. Lacks regular rhythmic pattern, phrases or repetition


This chorus is also a tuneful air (dance) in Act II. It occurs after Dido hears distant thunder conjured up by the Sorceress. It contains imitation and is sung SATB.


Haste, Haste to Town

Pg. 146 Trk 23


Queen of Carthage

Pg. 123 Trk 16

Sorceress is plotting the destruction of Carthage and its queen, calls in her evil companions to help her in her evil plans


In the form of a tuneful air and a chorus, this has a repeated binary form. Occurs in the middle of the hunt where the hunting party stops to take in the country’s beauty. A section is entirely homophonic, B section contains imitation.


Important method of setting English declamatory airs wherein two syllables are set with a dotted eighth followed by sixteenth note


Scottish Snap Example

Pg 95 Trk 5

(Whence could so much virtue)



One of Purcell’s innovations lies in the sophistication of his harmonic methods. Listen to the following excerpt pg. 95 (trk 5) in your score and name THREE.


Examples could include:

  • Major on fierce m. 8
  • C minor on soft m 7
  • Melt the rocks goes into g minor both a flat and a minor key m. 11

Tuneful Air or Dance

Two Part Air


Declamatory Air



Purcell composed each scene in a single key (with some interruptions as we discussed). Below are the keys, you name what it represents.

C minor


Purcell’s use of tonality offers a clear indication of how Aeneas’s role should be interpreted. Name the two places where Aeneas’s entrance disrupts the tonality.


Shift to e minor in Scene II

Page 101 m. 11 where Aeneas sings of his love yet the music contradicts this by modulating to e minor with the following chorus “Cupid Throws the Dart” in e minor. Tonality depicts the disruption caused by Aeneas’s arrival in Carthage as well as the disturbance that has occurred in everyone’s emotions.

Shift to a minor in Scene IV

Page 150 Reh Let 28 Trk 24

Fourth scene is in d minor and D major. However in the concluding monologue occurs in the key of a minor where Aeneas and the spirit (Mercury) brings on the command of Jove that Aeneas is to wait no longer in beginning his task of creating a new Troy on Latin soil. Aeneas consents to the wishes of the Gods, but is not happy that he will have to leave Dido.

When I am Laid In Earth

all have in common?


Name four pieces where a ground bass occurs

See notes on page 36 and 37 of your binder


Definitions is a note from one chord which is held into the next chord as a nonharmonic tone and resolved. Example:

When I Am Laid The Bb in measure 7 after Reh Let 38.

(B b held over from g minor chord in m. 6 and resolves to an inversion of a D7 chord.


Used for laments in Italian Opera, most common uses a descending scale, diatonic or chromatic with a cadence.


Final Jeopardy

Thy Belinda, When I Am Laid
