Use of the terms quartal and quintal arises from a contrast, compositional or perceptual, with traditional tertian harmonic constructions. Listeners familiar with music of the European common practice period perceive tonal music as that which uses major and minor chords and scales , wherein both the major third and minor third constitute the basic structural elements of the harmony. Regarding chords built from perfect fourths alone, composer Vincent Persichetti writes that: Chords by perfect fourth are ambiguous in that, like all chords built by equidistant intervals diminished seventh chords or augmented triads , any member can function as the root. The indifference of this rootless harmony to tonality places the burden of key verification upon the voice with the most active melodic line. Because of this relationship, any quartal chord can be rewritten as a quintal chord by changing the order of its pitches. Like tertian chords, a given quartal or quintal chord can be written with different voicings , some of which obscure its quartal structure.
