It is superfluous to add fresh rules to the present order 1), since it is composed of all the others; therefore, all which has been hitherto said, must serve as the basis for treating of florid counterpoint. I will merely give a model of this order 2),– with the remark, that after having gone through the exercise according to the manner denoted in the following example, the pupil may mingle the second order 3) with the fifth, and then introduce florid counterpoint into those parts which do not form the given cantus firmus.
