Thread Name: New musical terminology
Subject: RE: New musical terminology
I read a detective story recently whose main character was a young woman who wrote lyrics for rock music. She sometimes referred to music that had a "tiara." I think this is rock music's term for a descant. I like it.
I edit music at home to play with my friends, and I've decided to avoid Italian terms. We don't speak Italian, so why bother? If it's largo, I write "very slow", and so forth.
Squeeze Me, thanks for the info. And what does c/o mean?
