Canterbury Chorale.

Canterbury Chorale with correct voice leading procedures.
IV. General cognitive-based assessments-students will:

whole class how well a particular recording gave an authentic representation of the
piece.
VI. Creative-based assessments-students will:
a. Improvise or compose an original melody in the key of D flat Major
b. Notate an original melody in D flat Major using manuscript paper and/or notation
software
c. Realize a 4 part chorale using the same chord progression found in the first 8 bars of
Canterbury Chorale.
Objective for Creative-based assessments: SWBAT improvise or compose an original
melody in the key of D flat major, notate an original melody in D flat Major using
