The worksheet begins with a comprehensive guide that introduces the concept of the cadence, ensuring that students can recognise chords and assign the appropriate roman numeral, before introducing each of the four types of cadence, each accompanied by a written example.
There are three subsequent tasks aimed at securing student's understanding – they are:
– Task 1: To name various cadences by analysing a score;
– Task 2: To complete the last two chords of a simple chorale phrase, using the cadence specified;
– Task 3: A listening question requiring students to identify 6 cadences at the end of a short chorale harmonisation (audio file included).
A limited preview of the worksheet is available from the files list.
