  • Music for a While: Tempo, Rhythm and Meter
    •  There is no tempo indication but a slow tempo would be appropriate for this piece.
    • The metre is 4/4 quadruple time.
    • The piece uses a wide variety of rhythms but quavers and semiquavers are the most predominant.
    • Dotted rhythms are sometimes used in the vocal part (e.g. bar 10) but used more extensively in the right hand part of the harpsichord.
    • There is only occasional syncopation (e.g. bar 20) and off-beat rhythms (e.g. bar 24).
    • The ground bass is presented entirely in quavers.
