The examples are provided as a bundle of pdf-booklets see the table with links below. The notation is explained on this page. Composer Arnold Schoenberg wrote a textbook see reference at page bottom to teach the fundamentals of Tonal Counterpoint. In the book Schoenberg presents and discusses the rules for writing classical, tonal counterpoint.
Start with the Cantus Firmus melodic aspects , and add the counterpoint voices species, treatment of non-harmonic tones, melodic formulas, voice leading aspects.
The book contains many examples with discussion and explanatory notes. However, the score examples are written in the old vocal clefs including alto end tenor clef , and the examples must be carefully studied to see the application of the rules, find strong and weak points, etc.
The usage of the old clefs makes reading difficult I admit and therefore, when studying the book quite a while ago I decided to rewrite them in treble G and bass clef F and provide marks in the score, to illustrate the aspects discussed in the text. Now, these handwritten notes have been entered in the Finale music notation software and are available as pdf-booklets with annotated score examples.
Use these score examples as additional material, when studying the Schoenberg book. To me it has been most useful in training the reading and writing of counterpoint music and identifying appropriate elements in and between the individual voices. However, note that the notation marks have not been used with the utmost consistency. The reader may find aspects that have not been marked in the scores. The booklets are already a great improvement to the printed examples in the book.
The tonal counterpoint booklets may also be used as exercises for training and developing the writing skills in tonal counterpoint. Instead of reading the annotated worked out examples, cover all staves with a card, except for the cantus firmus. Try your own solution to the problem, then compare your alternative with the original example. Frans Absil.
