19edo - Harmonisation of the bass line F A# D# G C.
We present Purcell's Chacony Z730, arranged for Organ and tuned into Quarter-Comma & Golden Meantone.
Quarter-Comma meantone is defined by setting 4 fifths = 1 (natural) major third, so a fifth is as large as 696.578 cents; Golden meantone is defined by setting 1 diatonic semitone / a chromatic semitone = golden ratio, so a fiths is as large as 696.214 cents.

The ancient Passamezzo Cadence G- F G- D, modified to fit 19-equal division of the octave, with F lowered to Fb, in such a way that the root of the second chord (Fb) lies in the exact middle between G and D, so that "passamezzo" is given the meaning of "passes through half way".

We present Bach's Chorale Jesus bleibet meine Freude, arranged for two organs and tuned into Semi-Just intonation, centered around G. "Semi-Just intonation" is a generic umbrella name for systems constructed by expanding some just chords in a given tonality. In this case, the structure by fifths of the tuning is the following: Bb Just F F Quarter-comma C C Just G G Just D D Third-comma A A Third-comma E E Third-comma B B Quarter-comma F# F# Just C# C# Just G# G# Just D# D# 710.75 ¢ Bb The G-major triad is just. The other main triads happen to be tuned in this way (intervals from each root are displayed, figures are in cents): F 0.00 A 0.00 E 0.00 D 0.00 A 395.27 C 301.30 G# 395.27 F# 380.94 C 696.58 E 694.79 B 694.79 A 694.79
