Dialogue, as a term in Music, is a composition with at least two voices or two instruments that answer each other and often get together in a duo . Most of the scenes in operas are in this sense dialogues. However, in Music this word applies more specifically to the organ. On this instrument the organist plays dialogues by the interplay of different responses or on different keyboards.
