7C - Describe the cadence then name the modulation
In this test there are two parts:
Part (i) Listen to a phrase played twice then name the cadence. Then say what the chords in the cadence are.
A perfect cadence (Chords V - I) sounds finished and final.
An imperfect cadence ends on Chord V and sounds unfinished.
Please note - in a Grade 7 exam the imperfect cadence chords are limited
to IV - V and I - V.
An interrupted cadence (Chords V - VI) sounds unfinished too, but has a more 'surprising' feel.
Part (ii) Name the modulation, played once - it will be to the dominant key, the subdominant key or to the relative minor key.
