 Module B continued The singer understands:
• the function of a cadence. The names and characteristics of perfect, imperfect, plagal and interrupted cadences.
• the time signatures 5/4, 5/8, 7/4 and 7/8.
• the concept of modes.
• the commonly used performance directions listed on pages 34–35.
        Module B continued
The singer has read and understood the music theory in Module B and can:
• look at a short excerpt of music and
i) name the key signature (any key)
ii) name any note in the first chord
iii) name the first chord and its inversion
iv) name the relation of the chord to the key v) on hearing the first chord, sing any of its notes in their vocal range at the request of the choir trainer.
• sing any interval up to an octave above a given starting note.
• sing a minor scale (harmonic or melodic at the singer’s choice) ascending and descending of one octave. The key chord and key note will first be sounded.
• identify the cadence (perfect, imperfect, plagal or interrupted) at the end of an extract of music.
• identify the time of a passage in 5/4, 5/8, 7/4 or 7/8. The passage of music will be played twice. The singer should then state the time signature.
• sight-read fluently a piece of moderate difficulty. The set piece may be in any key or time signature, and may include triplets, duplets, dotted notes, music in changing time signatures and syncopated rhythms.
