convey this affinity as manifested in Gothic polyphony and other world musics, a more intuitive term for Pythagorean tuning might be simply "quintal just intonation." That is, the system is founded primarily on the fifth (or fourth. S.l.: Oxford Music Online,.d. Jew's harp : An instrument that produces sound using shapes of the mouth and attempting to pronounce different vowels with one's mouth. In an analysis of Japanese koto music, for example, David Loeb observes: "At these points of apparent repose, the vertical intervals include, not surprisingly, perfect fifths and octaves.

Courts employed virtuoso performers, both singers and instrumentalists. The result is indeed a Wolf of "catastrophically" enlarged proportions. For certain adventurous medieval pieces, one might desire a proper fifth at ab-eb and modern compositions or improvisations in a "neo-Gothic" style might freely use all 12 fifths or fourths in an octave. At the beginning of the 16th century, instruments were considered to be less important than voices. Du Fay may have been the first composer to use the term "fauxbourdon" for this simpler compositional style, prominent in 15th-century liturgical music in general and that of the Burgundian school in particular. Some have survived to the present day; others have disappeared, only to be recreated in order to perform music of the period on authentic instruments. Well-temperaments, triadic and trinic A well-temperament, in the broadest sense, is any temperament that permits all relevant intervals in a given style to be playable in any transposition - in other words, a temperament avoiding all "Wolves." By this test, equal temperament is a special. A fifth more than 10 cents from just is often considered a Wolf, although Jorgensen describes certain fifths in the 15-cent range of variance as somewhat serviceable "semi-Wolves." Whatever our standard, it is rapidly exceeded as we move into the region of characteristic meantone. As long as the accidentals are used mainly for unstable cadential sonorities, where tension is expected, we might argue that slightly out-of-tune fifths or fourths are not so crucial. Indeed such a keyboard might be an ideal incentive for a performer who loves medieval music and would like practice in the art of free transposition!
