Intonation notation? Agnus Dei (SAB) a cappella
Date: September 11, 2013
I have a quandry on how to best notate intonation for new music.
Choices are: A) pitch symbols B) pitch bars or C) no special notation.
Heavy down arrow, tuned thirds, sixths, and often second when tuned to the fourth. Little arrows, perfect fifth relations to tonic. Double arrow, two-comma low tuned third to secondary dominant.
Self explanatory, I hope: size of bars proportional to how different from equal temperament.
C) no indications, full score http://www.hartenshield.com/0573_agnus_dei.pdf
