|Note on Thorough bass
Written by Johanna Elisabet
(1/14/2004 9:40 p.m.)
in consequence of the missive, Musical(?) question in ch.12, penned by Line
"Thorough bass: a bass line with figures indicating the harmonies which the player must realize by improvisation in the upper part. The term came also to mean the study of harmony in general"
Note from my P&P from Penguin Classics (1996) notes by Vivien Jones.
