33 Messiaen: Quatuor pour la fin du Temps Ex. , with the first sounds - an example of Messiaen's comparatively rare mode 4 - transposed downward by a whole tone (Ex. 4b). The resonant sonority here (third crotchet beat) is again underpinned by a bass dyad covering a minor seventh (E, D), thus referring back to the chord of inferior resonance at A:l. But there is also a forward connection to the way in which the 'chord on the dominant' is treated in the next bar: in effect this minor-seventh dyad substitutes for the perfect fourth (A, D) which, if it were to occur by analogy with that next phrase, would similarly turn the entire sonority into a 'chord on the dominant' with double appoggiatura.

Knowing Messiaen's identification of the initial melodic pattern with Musorgsky's Boris Godunov, one might imagine this as a Russian song, in slow tempo, supported by tonic and subdominant harmony in E minor that alternates on each crotchet beat. With such minimal harmonic movement one would imagine it to be the opening of a much larger melodic span, perhaps of sixteen bars.

The last eight chords lie within Messiaen's mode 2, though not in all cases at the same level of transposition (chords 22-28 are within tl, chords 21 and 29 within t2). Mode 2 has received considerably more attention, both from composers and from writers on music, than Messiaen's other modes. 22 Something of this can be seen in the piano's chord sequence at this point. g. 23 The latter chordtype is simply transposed twice more to give chords 28 and 29. 24 This terminology alludes to the so-called 'pedal notes' that in many works by J.
