In Toccata VI the upbeat scale pattern that begins in m. While their rhetoric is obviously high and passionate and the logic of isolated elements is perceptible, there is little initial feeling of overall structure or destination. Indeed, this sensation of timeless contemplation is one of the aims of the Elevation, the musical creation of a kind of eternal present.
In fact, however, the underlying harmonic structures of these works are more direct even that those of the pedal toccatas: in Toccata III, mm. Beyond this rhythmic level we enter an area where the unexpected is more important than the sequential and the expected, or at any rate where the unexpected can be explained only after its appearance. For example, Toccata IV is permeated by anticipated functional downbeats recognized as such only when they begin to move. In mm. The resolution of the alto is echoed an octave higher by an anticipated downbeat in the soprano that becomes a suspension, as does the alto, and moves downward against an imitative motif that is derived from the opening as is the decorated F-sharp in the tenor of m.
The ambiguity of the voice-leading is compounded by the scale descent apparently crossing from the soprano to an anticipated downbeat in the alto, followed by another in the soprano Ex. In the beginning of Toccata IV all four voices are sounding by the second half of the first measure, but the entrance in m. Some of this remarkable extension is achieved by illogic, as in the constant preparation and subsequent sidestepping of full cadences either by deceptive cadences or by chromatic alteration for example, the lowered C and F in the general A-major context of mm.
Rising scale figures are an easily perceived unifying device and are variously employed, ascending regularly through the chordal texture mm.

To conclude the first section of the toccata the upbeat rising figure is reversed to become a descent from a downbeat, and the remaining measures are built around falls from ever greater heights mm. Its rhythmic patterns, especially the Lombard rhythm, are consistent over relatively long spans.
The harmony changes regularly every quarter-note, frequently a chromatic inflection of a more basic change on the half note, and the bass is firmly marked. The logic of linear construction, which is not necessarily the logic of part-writing, is adamant and lends a peculiar urgency to the figural patterns derived from the previous sections of the toccata. The ending especially demonstrates the propulsive force of a rising chromatic line, already evident in the finale of Fantasia II.
The first three and the last extend the development of the variation-canzona, a procedure most strikingly exemplified in the descending chromatic subject of Canzona III.

Free figural writing in sectional contrapuntal works, which Girolamo began in the capriccios, is now integrated seamlessly into the texture, so that sections regularly begin with the energy of canzona-motives and dissolve into brilliant figuration. The gagliarde, notated in 3 three halves and O3 three whole notes , consist of two or three sections beginning on a downbeat; their rhythmic concision recalls the Neapolitan ensemble galliard. The second corrente is provided with another feature later adopted by the French, a written-out figural variation or double.
Like any other seventeenth-century Italian organist, he must have improvised their equivalents every working day of his life.

Annibaldi hypothesizes that the verses were copied ca. Frescobaldi not only transcribed the originals from part-books but even noted mistakes such as parallel fifths—sixteen times in the Palestrina cycle but only four in the Victoria.
In his own hymn-versets Frescobaldi followed Palestrina in the number of verses, Victoria in the use of a four-voice texture. The Magnificats on the first and sixth tones have five versets, alternating with even-numbered chant verses, and the Magnificat on the second tone has six versets, presumably alternating with odd-numbered chant verses. The chant materials are treated as long-note cantus firmi in one or more voices, paraphrased, or divided up to provide subjects for imitative treatment or tripla variations.
Fasolo in his Annuale of described the performance of hymns:. The ciaccona was originally a lively dance, the passacaglia a ritornello, and both were developed in the musically marginal world of the guitar tablature. When Frescobaldi took up these patterns they were still evolving, although the ciaccona had settled on the major mode and had developed a typical rhythmic pattern in triple meter; the passacaglia could be cast either in major or minor.
