Slowly rising, sequenced, connected melody. Interval of P5. Simple chord structure is the basis of many other songs. I use this to teach a continuing line--sing through the long notes and then through the eighth notes on a single phrase, then inhale for the next phrase without missing the entrance and without panic: not what one might do in performance, but a good exercise.
