Characteristics of Cadence
Etymology & Historical Origin - Cadence
The name Cadence is taken from the English vocabulary word which signifies the rhythmic flow of a sequence of sounds. The Latin word “cadentes” means ‘falling’ and The Harvard Concise Dictionary of Music and Musicians defines a cadence as: “a melodic or harmonic configuration that creates a sense of repose or resolution [finality or pause]" – which gives one a sense of ‘falling’ as the Latin origin suggests. Cadences are categorized as either weak or strong depending on the force of the finality it imbues and the sense of closure it creates. As a female given name, Cadence is a very recent coinage distinct to the 21st century and specific to the United States.
