ON MELODY IN SPEECH.

{ \override Score.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f \relative g' { \cadenzaOn g4 e8 e d d c2 \bar "||" g'8 g f4 e8 e d4 e8 d4 c \bar "||" \break g'4 e c8 g c4 \bar "||" g'8 g f c e e d c d4 \bar "||" } \addlyrics { Good morn -- ing to you all. What a fine day we have now a -- gain. How are you to -- day? Will you come and dine with me to -- day? } }


Or they begin on the key-note and move to the dominant:

{ \override Score.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f \relative c' { \cadenzaOn c8 e4 c8 e f4 d g8 g g4 \bar "||" } \addlyrics { I hope you are now quite well a -- gain. } }


Or they ascend from the dominant to the octave, and to the ninth and tenth:

{ \override Score.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f \relative g' { \cadenzaOn g8 a a g g c4 e \bar "||" g,8 d' g, g g e'4 c8 \bar "||" } \addlyrics { How glad I am to see you! How beau -- ti -- ful and charming! } }


Many expressions are begun on the sixth as on a leading tone to the dominant:

{ \override Score.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f \relative a' { \cadenzaOn a8 a g4 f8 f e b d4 c \bar "||" \break a'8 a g4 c \bar "||" a8 a g4 e \bar "||" } \addlyrics { Ma -- ny times have I come to see you. Have you been there? No, I have not. } }


The voice moves mostly up and down in the principal scale and chord, and in their relative harmonies, and frequently dwells on introducing tones from above or below to a tone of any of these chords:

{ \override Score.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f \time 2/4 \relative c' { \grace d4^\markup { \smaller \italic "Principal Chords." }  c2 | \grace b4 c2 \bar "||" \grace f4 e2 | \grace d4 e2 \bar "||" \grace a4 g2 | \grace fis4 g2 \bar "||" \grace d'4 c2 | \grace b4 c2 \bar "||" } }

{ \override Score.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f \time 2/4  \relative g' { \grace a4^\markup { \smaller \italic Dominant. } g2 | \grace fis4 g2 \bar "||" \grace c4 b2 | \grace a4 b2 \bar "||" \grace e4 d2 | \grace cis4 d2 \bar "||" \grace g,4^\markup { \smaller \italic Subdominant. } f2 | \grace e4 f2 \bar "||" } }

{ \override Score.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f \time 2/4 \relative a' { \grace bes4^\markup { \smaller \italic Subdominant. } a2 | \grace g4 a2 \bar "||" \grace d4 c2 | \grace b4 c2 \bar "||" \grace e,4^\markup { \smaller \italic "D minor." } d2 | \grace cis4 d2 \bar "||" \grace g4 f2 | \grace e4 f2 \bar "||" } }
