Navigation etc.

Around 1890, Ives was much in advance of his fellow composers in musical writing. For example taste the acidulous bitonal/bimodal conterpoint he uses for Adeste fideles where the melody is inverted, then played - in B-flat minor - against the actual hymn in F major (perhaps an allusion to the reversed cross used in the Sabbath evoqued in the note at the beginning). The chords used are similar to some used in The Unanswered Question.
