Category 2. Coordinate Spacing

Type 2. Presentation of basso continuo figuration.

Ordinarily, basso continuo figures can be placed directly beneath the note whose harmonization they reveal. There are, however, three classes of complications related to the placement of continuo figures:

Ex. #9 illustrates the first problem type in Bars 43-47, the second type throughout (see especially Bars 48-51), and the third type in Bars 45 and 47. Errors in the original figures have been corrected with information in brackets.

Ex. #9. Handel's Ottone: "Bel labbro formato" from Act 1. This example was produced by Edmund Correia, Jr., using MuseData and its associated printing system.
