Still here and working on part-writing. I have used a sharp ii dim7th chord, straight after iihalfdim7- leading to V. Is this actually the right place to put it in terms of chord sequence/harmonic progression? Obviously, as we are in minor, the ii chord is also dissonant, so the progression has to be treated very carefully.
I have voiced the two chords as follows. The key is E minor:
1.As you can see, in the ii half dim7, I have an augmented 4th between the tenors and alto. This dissonance does not resolve in the next chord, and instead becomes another augmented 4th interval , just half a step up (C-Fsharp, Csharp-F double sharp). Is this acceptable/unavoidable?
- I have leapt into a dissonance from A to F sharp in the tenor (F sharp being the augmented 4th of the dissonance). Is this also unavoidable? (perhaps a remedy here is to double the E [5th] of the previous chord, allowing a move by step into the dissonance? although this would be unorthodox doubling).
Any help gratefully received!
