Sagittal Chord Lists

Happy New Year! I just figured out this forum exists. I've been working on a fairly large list of dyads and triads in Just Intonation, Athenian Mixed Sagittal, using Dorico 2. The list is not yet complete, but at this point I want to not continue listing all possible triads (as I've done up to 27-odd-limit) but to list only higher-limit triads that should be reasonably commonly used.

My general idea for the triads is to only include triads that fall within one octave, to present them in simplest form in terms of the ratios, and to spell them with middle C as each of the 3 notes in the chord, thus the 3 versions of each chord. I like the Sagittal system a lot, but if I want people to become familiar with it, I think that it's pretty useful to make reference lists like this to make it easier to dive into. Not just for others, but for me, too, as I get more ambitious with writing stuff.

Suggestions are definitely welcome, as are eyes to help error check. I'm particularly looking for naming suggestions. For example, there are two 11-limit 'neutral' thirds: 9:11 and 22:27. What is a good thing to call these that distinguishes them clearly? There are many instances of cases like this. ... ord-lists/

Also, I've changed the address of this page, so the link on the main Sagittal website should be updated, if you still deem it worthy.

I reorganized my website slightly and added two Youtube videos of the Dorico playback of these lists. The link has changed, but I don't think I could have avoided that in my reorganization. ... ord-lists/
