Phrygian cadence

DEFINITION

A chord progression where the subdominant chord (in first inversion) is followed by the dominant chord ( IV 6 -V). The root of the final chord is approached from a half step above. The " IV 6 " represents the chord based on the fourth step of the scale (in first inversion) and the " V" represents the chord based on the fifth step of the scale. In the tonality of " E" minor, a phrygian cadence would be the subdominant ( IV 6) A minor chord ( C- E- A) moving to the dominant ( V) B major chord ( B- D-sharp -F-sharp). The Phrygian cadence is a special type of half cadence.
