## Section27.4The Special Resolution of vii$\left.\text{}^{\circ}{}^{7}\right.$ (and vii$\left.\text{}^ø{}^{7}\right.$)
The $\left.\text{vii}^{\circ}{}^{7}\right.$ and $\left.\text{vii}^ø{}^{7}\right.$ chords consist entirely of tendency tones ($\hat{7}$ , $\hat{2}$ , $\hat{4}$ , $\hat{6}$ ). If one resolves all of those tendency tones correctly ($\hat{2}$ –$\hat{1}$ , $\hat{4}$ –$\hat{3}$ , $\hat{6}$ –$\hat{5}$ , $\hat{7}$ –$\hat{8}$ ), one might write parallel 5ths depending on the voicing of the $\left.\text{vii}^{\circ}{}^{7}\right.$ and $\left.\text{vii}^ø{}^{7}\right.$ chord. Therefore, be sure to memorize the following principle:
