Hypodoric mode

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Hypodorische mode , short Hypodorisch is to Doric belonging Plagaltonart . In the medieval system of church tones it is also called the second tone or protus plagalis . It differs from the Doric tone ( protus authenticus ) in that it has a pitch range ( ambitus ) that is shifted down a fourth and a different repercussa . The finals , however, remain the same.

Doric: Ambitus d - d 1 , Finalis d, Repercussa a.
Hypodoric: Ambitus A - a, Finalis d, Repercussa f.

For today's applications (for example in modal jazz ) the hypodoric mode does not play a role because the modal scales do not differentiate between authentic and plagal . So here there is only the Doric , but no Hypodoric scale.
