    Does anyone have perfect pitch and remember the dictation? Bit of a long shot but an unofficial markscheme would be good xD (or recognise the pieces)
    If anyone can find the piece I'll be able to do it!! Can remember some but not too clearly. I guessed it was Schubert but I didn't recognise what piece it was.

    How did everyone find it? I had to guess chords A and B after the dictation because I missed all 5 times...
    A was V7 (with the 7th on the bottom?! Don't know if we were supposed to clarify it) then B was Ib I think.

    It was a chilled paper I thought, the 36 markers were both kind

    Does anyone know what the 3 pieces were for the second 36 marker, just out of interest?

    I went for Stravinsky and the 3rd date? Think it was like 1910? Shot in the dark though, probably wrong.

    I'm pretty sure its the symphony of psalms from 1930 (neoclassical period rather than the rite period)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DqWZGUO_eoc 0:39 and 5:01 sounds similar to the listening

    which will mean that the accompaniment is an ostinato...

    Guys, considering that we've got the excerpts, lets try and create an unofficial mark scheme.

    I can remember what the questions were for Question 1.

    Name the instrument heard at the opening of the extract A.

    Name the voice first heard in extract A.

    Name the type of voice first heard in extract B.

    Name the type of technique played by the accompaniment at this point.

    Compare and contrast the melody and texture of the excerpts.

    If it's the Symphony of Psalms, it can't be a violin or viola (according to Wikipedia neither are used), so it must be a cello playing high in its range (unless wikipedia is wrong).

    Altos

    Soprano (did they need specifically mezzo-soprano?)

    Ostinato

    A) homophonic, 4-part (?) choir, monophonic at opening (?), melody with accompaniment
    B) imitative, contrapuntal/polyphonic, independent lines
    (don't remember melody rip)

    I could be wrong.

    Just wondering what that first string instrument was?? Honestly cannot tell whether or not it's a Violin or viola.

    Here are a few of my answers, pretty unreliable but hey

    1a) I put Violin :/
    b) alto choir
    c) Alberti bass (broken chords)
    d) soprano choir
    e) Melody dominated homophony, B was contrapuntal, A was more chromatic. B was lyrical and cantabile
    f) Stravinsky
    g) 1930

    2a) 🤷
    b) F maj
    Imperfect
    D min
    Perfect
    Dissonances:
    Suspension
    Appogiatura
    Chords:
    Dim7 (wrong)
    V⁷ (wrong)

    Name the instrument heard at the opening of the extract A
    Cello

    Name the voice first heard in extract A
    Alto

    Name the type of technique played by the accompaniment at this point
    Ostinato

    Name the type of voice first heard in extract B
    Soprano

    Compare and contrast melody and texture of A and B (Mostly guesswork tbh)
    A Melody
    Conjunct and Scalic (I literally just guessed)
    A Texture
    Melody-Dominated Homophony before going into SATB
    B Melody
    Conjunct and Sequences
    B Textures
    More Contrapuntal with use of Imitation between voices

    Schubert
    2nd Option

    Question 2

    Two Cadences:
    1. Tonic - Imperfect
    2. Dominant - Perfect

    Two Dissonances
    1. Appoggiatura
    2. Suspension

    Dictation put in post above

    Two Chords after Dictation
    1. V7 (with 7th at bottom)
    2. Ib

    Stravinsky
    Third Option

    Can someone tell me what the COD damn piece in the second listening was? I guessed it was Schubert but he does not appear to have written ANY piano piece in F major, and it's not part of the B flat major sonata either......
    Any ideas?

    - Nevermind I was blind... I just saw hogree's post

    -Composed in 1815... Out by 25 years...
    God I'm so stupid Schubert died in 1828 and he was in the anthology too :'(

    I relate to you, I put Chopin even though some part of me was like "this isn't hard enough to be Chopin" because I wasn't familiar with Schubert's piano works (I knew him as a symphonic composer) but put 1815 just in case rip. At least it's only a mark.

    Did anyone use the Anthology for the composer dates? It was pretty helpful in the 5 minutes reading time. It couldn't have been Berlioz because the dates were all wrong so I went with Stravinsky and i'm pretty confident with that. But i'm willing to be proved wrong
