Cadential 6/4 Progressions

This is an advanced theory resource, for students studying Grade 6 music theory and above, and for students of A-level music.  

Remember that a 6/4 chord is a second inversion chord.  You may only use second inversion chords at recognised places, such as in Cadential 6/4, Passing 6/4 and Auxiliary 6/4 progressions.  You will need to learn these thoroughly, and then be able to apply them to any key.

Hemblington Church in rural Norfolk – a beautiful place to sit and think, to enjoy the countryside, to walk or cycle to, and of course to worship.

I am proud to be the organist at this little church in the middle of a field.  But there’s a lane leading to the church, and room to park your car if you choose to drive there.  And there’s a very warm welcome from the congregation, should you turn up in time for the 9.30am Sunday service.  The church is open every day, and has a fantastic mediaeval wall painting.  To find out more about Hemblington Church, please have a look here. read more
