The Song-form Or The Part-form
Analyze the following examples of the Two-Part Song-form.
Define the form of each Part, marking and classifying all cadences; and
indicate introductions and codas (or codettas), if present. The first
step in the analysis of these forms is to divide the whole composition
into its Parts, by defining the end of Part One. The next step is to
define the beginning of Part One, and end of Part Two, by separating
the introduction and coda (if present) from the body of the form.
