Example 4.1 begins with the seventh of the V7 (4ˆ) resolving to the third of I (3ˆ) in the soprano. This is an essential voice leading connection and each subsequent resolution uses brackets to show in which voice the 4ˆ –3ˆ resolution occurs. Even if it is in an inner voice, that particular voice leading remains special and will help you hear the difference between V and V7.
