Thread Name: HELP: Definition of a harmony?
Subject: RE: HELP: Definition of a harmony?
I always thought it odd that harmony developed later than counterpoint (polyphony), because counterpoint can only be said to work properly if it doesn't conflict with what is regarded as good harmony. I suspect that people had a feel for harmony even though, stylistically, counterpoint was the thing.
