I hope you have found my video about various cadences useful and today I'm sharing this video about a special kind of cadence called the Deceptive Cadence. It is named so because it comes in a piece very unexpectedly, sort of like you would expect one chord but in reality you hear another chord.
It is very useful tool to have in your "bag of tricks" so I hope you will apply the Deceptive Cadence in harmonizing hymns, improvisations, and other instances where you need to invent four-part harmony.
