Harmony refers back to the “vertical” sounds of pitches in music, which implies pitches which might be played or sung together on the same time to create a chord Normally this means the notes are performed at the similar time, although harmony may additionally be implied by a melody that outlines a harmonic structure (i.e., by utilizing melody notes that are performed one after the opposite, outlining the notes of a chord).
We consider the lieder (artwork songs) of Franz Schubert (d. 1828); the ballads and the show music of the 1940’s and the 1950’s, especially that of Frank Sinatra; and far of the music of the 1960’s, especially Ann Murray, the Beatles, the Seaside Boys, and the Carpenters.

Whereas Romantic period classical music from the mid- to late-1800s makes great use of dramatic modifications of dynamics, from whispering pianissimo sections to thunderous fortissimo sections, some total Baroque dance suites for harpsichord from the early 1700s may use a single dynamic.
