Harmonization

 

the composition of harmonic accompaniment to a Metody; also the harmonic accompaniment itself.

One and the same Metody can be harmonized in different ways (harmonic variation). In the most natural harmonization, the main elements (the general style, the harmonic functions, the modulations, and so on) are determined by the Metody itself. Harmonization exercises are the fundamental method of training in harmony. Metody harmonization often has an artistic objective as well, particularly in the harmonization of folk songs. Russian classical composers regarded the harmonization of the Russian folk song as one of the methods for formulating a national style of harmony. Modern composers also draw on folk songs for harmonization.
