Development of part-singing in the context of pentatonic material as exemplified by a choral composition (Csilingelő) for treble voices by Hungarian composer Miklós Kocsár. In the opening and closing sections of the composition, the la-pentatonic theme is combined with a pentatonic ostinato pattern sung in canon in the upper two voices.
