In church yesterday Mrs. HeyHomie and I (and the rest of the congregation of course) sang a song where the men sang one part and the women sang the other part, at the same time. The parts had different words and different melodies, but formed a synergy that was really pretty.
**Men** **Women** I will sing to He is Lord of Lords And worship He is King of Kings The King who He is Mighty God Is worthy Lord of everything I will love and He's the loving God Adore him He's the Great I Am And I will bow down He's the Prince of Peace Before Him Who is the Lamb.
What is this technique called? I’ve heard it before - It’s used in Godspell.
Mrs. HeyHomie suggested Counterpoint, but I think counterpoint is for when the lines have similar melodies. For instance, Jean Valjean and Javert sing in counterpoint in Les Miserables, and their lines have almost identical melodies and meter.
Anyway, any musicians wanna help a Doper out here?
