I'm learning about decorated suspension. But I don't understand the explanation below. Could you guys help me with this?
P/s: I type the script of explanation below, so you guys with smartphone screen can read it more easier.
- DECORATING THE SUSPENSION
The non-suspending voice is usually stable (i.e. does not move) during stages 2 and 3 of the suspension.
However, one way of DECORATING a suspension to change the note of the non-suspending voice at stage 3. This voice would jump to another chord note, usually another imperfect consonance, at the point of resolution. This tends to happen more with 7-6 and 2-3 suspensions than with 4-3. It can also occur in a 9- 8 suspension. The following shows some previous examples which have been decorated in this way; play them and comment on them (are they related?):
