This text begins with a species approach to counterpoint supported by a simultaneous synthesis of the resources of 18th-century harmony. Graded exercises seek to unify the principles of counterpoint and harmony in an expanding craft. Chapters on melodic transformation and variation, invertible counterpoint, imitation and canon follow the introductory section and these chapters are, in turn, followed by chapters addressing the harmonic, melodic, and formal organization of model 18th-century works. The last chapters cover, in order, guided original composition in Two-Part Invention, Chorale Prelude, Three Voice Fugue, Passacaglia, and Double Fugue form.
