Sample text

As an incentive toward further research, let me perform one more experiment on (14). If we change the note values in the last measure from quarter + eighth to eighth + quarter, as in (16), suddenly " b a m b o o " becomes a great deal more acceptable. However, if we then change " b a m b o o " to "baboon," the result is worse again. Yet the stress pattern of the word has not changed, only the length of the first syllable. Evidently there is more to text setting than matching metrical grids. Inconclusive though this exercise is, it does present further evidence for the correlation of stress with the metrical grid rather than with time-span reduction.

Within cadences, it is essentially prohibited to introduce accentual cues that con­ travene the prevailing metrical pattern ( G 7 T M : 8 8 - 8 9 , rule M P R 7). A common stylistic device of classical tonal music that exploits this constraint is an increase in metrical complexity through cross-accentuation immediately prior to a cadence, so that the cadence comes as a haven not only of har­ monic stability but of metrical stability as well.
