Juan Rezzuto has already rendered articles on Sentence and Period. Now it is time to learn about the hybrid themes!

This summary about hybrid themes is based on William Caplin’s Classical forms book. Caplin’s work represents a fantastic summary of forms used in the classical period.

There four basic hybrid themes:

  1. Antecedent – continuation
  2. Antecedent – cadential
  3. CBI – continuation
  4. CBI – consequent

It is always useful to order these types in relation to their similarities with the sentence and the period.

PERIOD => CBI – Consequent => Antecedent – Cadential => Antecedent – Continuation => CBI – Continuation => SENTENCE
