strophic (from Gk. strophe). Term applied to song in which the same mus. is repeated, perhaps with very minor change, for each successive stanza of setting of a poem, in manner of folk-song. The opposite, where the mus. progresses, is called ‘through-composed’ (Ger. Durchkomponiert). In general, the strophic song is simple and lyrical, the through-composed more dramatic or complex.
strophic See HINGE.
