Durchimitieren | Musical Vocabulary Word


The term refers to a style in which imitation is applied equally to all the parts. It is particularly used with references to the fully developed imitative polyphony to the Flemish period, as distinguished from those pieces of the same ( or earlier ) period in which the tenor has a cantus firmus.
