Disputed and under-referenced[edit]

I have applied two tags.

Does gamut ever mean the same as hexachord? I think this gets the relation between the concepts wrong.

The long section Middle Ages lacks references entirely. I would recommend Grove as a first resource, but it would be good to include others. I fear that some of the text in this section may not be original.

Also, the references in the next section are inadequate. We need much fuller bibliographic details than this, and more standard formatting.

I'd attend to these things myself, and may yet do so. But right now I am tied up with other things.

Re: "Does gamut ever mean the same as hexachord? I think this gets the relation between the concepts wrong.":
I don't know about "ever", but in this context I think gamut usually means an entire system of hexachords. The logical thing it seems to me is simply to delete the phrase "or gamut" from the opening sentence, which is what I will do. If anyone has a better idea, he should feel free to revert me (but explain why it's better here, please). TheScotch (talk) 08:22, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

Allen Forte & Milton Babbitt[edit]

"Milton Babbitt's serial theory extends the term hexachord to refer to a six-note segment of a twelve-tone row." was removed as uncited, as "<ref>Allen Forte, ''The Structure of Atonal Music'' (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1973):{{Page needed|date=October 2009}}</ref>" was as failed verification.

Hauer's tropes[edit]

There is a musical example of Hauer's tropes, but it is never discussed in the text. (talk) 01:51, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
