(m) See table below. FIVE correct Element Bars 1 7 Bars 8 17 Pitch of soprano part: melodic range and direction Rhythm Textural density Movement is upwards over a narrow pitch range (perfect 5th). Longer note values make it very slow moving, particularly in combination with the tempo marking. Thinner sound because it is voices-only / a cappella / unaccompanied. Movement is both upwards and downwards over the range of an octave. Mostly based on quavers and crotchets that move very quickly (allegro), driving the section along. Full sound because the keyboard part gives both upper and lower support beyond the pitch of the soprano and bass lines.
