"Definition of counterpoint rhythm. : rhythm in poetry including so much metrical inversion that the prevailing cadence ceases at times to prevail and so that a complex rhythm results from the concomitance of the basic cadence with its inversion if … reversal is repeated in two feet running"
I caught this morning radio BBC 4's 'Something Understood' which dwelt on counterpoint. Listened to the music of Bach as he would have composed playing through his motifs, blending these small batches of notes to create such beautiful music. Listened to poetry, the last being the finest by Gerald Manley Hopkins - The Windhover and imagined the moment captured as he viewed this bird in the sky.
