Alleluia (Mozart)

This beautiful 3 part canon is wonderful for:

  • Studying Mozart's style (the style of the Classical Period), including the use of passing notes.
  • Studying melodic sequences.
  • Teaching melismas.
  • Teaching the melodic element 'di' (sharpened 'do').
  • Teaching 2/4 metre (with the last line of the song).
  • Teaching the rhythmic element 'tum ti'.
