Stravinsky- "Symphony of Psalms: movement III" Notes

This is all the major points for the categories of:

  • Resources
  • Structure
  • Texture
  • Tonality
  • Harmony
  • Melody
  • Rhythm and Metre

For this set work. There is also some background info as well:)

For each point, if there needs be, I have also put examples like bar numbers next to them.

Relative? Means whether you can include this point in the 10 marker essay, eg whether or not this is a Romantic feature. I have put REL next to the background info if that is relevant as well.

I hope this helps x
