At last there must be a whole phrase as a whole,entirely resumed.All together leads to a "principal or main not or idea"That´s what it seems to be..

Asker: Sorry for the confusion. 'Whole Phrase' is indeed a request for help for the whole thing. I don't seem to be able to separate the elements.

  -> My point of view leads me to realize that the strains or tunes(II,VII,III,etc),all together create or form a new accord or as a whole phrase,as a main strain or tune.

neutral  Janine Libbey: "Whole phrase" should not have been entered as the text to translate but rather the text in Spanish.

the function of sensitive is reserved to the note integrated to the II chords.

El pasaje usa vocabulario de armonía, como subgénero de la teoría musical. Puede referirse en este caso a técnicas de composición, por el tono prescriptivo que tiene.

La mayoría de los términos técnicos empleados remiten a relaciones entre notas de una escala. Así, una tónica (inglés "root") es la primera nota de la escala, la más grave, y las restantes, también llamadas grados, se ordenan utilizando números romanos. Cada grado expresa una distancia tonal, y una correspondiente tensión, respecto de la tónica. Así, la quinta (V) estará cinco tonos arriba de la tónica. La "sensible" es como se denomina a la séptima, en virtud de que su tensión con la tónica es la máxima posible de la escala. Es complejo dar cuenta de todo este tema en poco espacio, pero con buscar un manual de referencia sobre armonía se te despejaría el panorama. Espero haberte ayudado.

Asker: Gracias Marcus pero creo que la 'sensible' se refiere a la 'leading-note' en inglés.
