a non-harmonic tone whereby a pitch is sounded as a dissonance against one chord, and is held or re-sounded against a second chord of which it is a consonant member. For example, the pitch C is sounded above a G7 chord, which sounds as a dissonance against the chord. the pitch is left to sound while the harmony changes to a C chord, of which the pitch C is a member of the chord, and sounds as a consonance with the chord.
