The Motive at the begining repeats 3 times. m.1, then goes up a whole stepand does it again in m. 5 (pick up to). It happends a second time in measure 8, but is prolonged on the third note. I think just to give more of the "tension" feel to go along with his Tristen Chord. The third is followed by an echo in m. 12. After that there is a small transition from m. 14 to m.15.
After the first 16 measures, the main idea of the songs comes in in the middle of m. 17 (a-b-c) It is There that the main theme of the song apears. whole step- whole step- half step. This is the little three note pattern that keeps re occurring. The same three notes also have the same three rhythmic pattern. Eighth note- dotted eighth note- sixteenth note. This SAME PAttern occures COUNTLESS times through out the piece.
m. 37 - m. 41. is a transion into the key change from Am to c#m.
Also through out the song there is a motive that keep reoccuring. they are found in measures 35, 61, 62, 94, and a few more.
Im not exactly sure of the form, but i know where the sections are.Section 1: m.1 - m. 16. Section 2: m. 17-m. 43. Section 3: m. 45-m. 62. Section 4: m.63-m.85. Last section: m.86-END.
This piece is a WONDERFUL piece. I listend to it again and again, and was blessed evertime. I really like the first chord in m. 17. :)
Please give comment !!! this is just what i can see... there is so much more going on the the piece, I wish i had more time to really dive into it....
