  1. Voicing

    In music composition and arranging, a voicing is the instrumentation and vertical spacing and ordering of the pitches in a chord. Which note is on the bottom determines the inversion. Voicing is "the manner in which one distributes, or spaces, notes and chords among the various instruments" and spacing or "simultaneous vertical placement of notes in relation to each other." For example, the following three chords are root-position C major triads voiced differently: All three voicings above are in root position, while the first is in close position, the most compact voicing, and the second and third are in open position, which includes wider spacing. In triadic chords, close root position voicing is the most compact voicing in thirds which has the root in the bass. Open and closed harmony are harmony and harmonization constructed from open and close position chords, respectively. The Psalms chord is noted for its characteristic spacing of an E-minor triad.
