I was wondering if anyone could help me in my query.
I'm searching for musicological books (or theses/dissertations) which discuss melodic intervals.
I mean eg. about the perfect fifth: what are its qualities in melody? What does it show? How is it used? Examples of famous melodies that use the fifth and what they invoke, etc.
I already have "the language of Music" by Cooke but i'm looking for something else than that.
I'm interested mostly in a discussion of the perfect 5th (as a melodic interval), which Cooke's book doesn't have much about..
(but in the others too)
