Music Theory QuickThink: 

-          The double neighbor is an embellishment that starts on a given note, then moves to both the upper and lower neighbor tones followed by the original note.

-          The embellishment may go to upper neighbor then lower neighbor… or lower neighbor then upper neighbor (order does not matter)


-          The cambiata embellishment is the combination of a passing and neighbor embellishments. 

-          The dissonant tone is approached by step (like a passing tone) then proceeds by skip in the same direction, finally moving by step in the opposite direction to resolve the dissonant tone on a harmonic consonance.
