How it maps to the curriculum


Strand: Aural Skills

Suggestions for use: Preparation for the Aural Skills question on the Leaving Cert Listening paper. There is a moving score, enabling the listener to see, as well as hear, the use of Latin and the relevant music theory e.g. the minor key with its accidental; the unusual time signature and note-types; harmonic progressions and stylistic features of Renaissance motets.
