A miracle chord is an essentially tempered chord of miracle temperament; they are included among those listed as chords of miracle. Aside from the swetismic, werckismic, keenanismic, rastmic, marvel, unimarvel, jove and prodigy chords listed there, there are ten further essentially miracle chords. These are the inversely related pair of tetrads:

  • 1-10/7-8/5-7/4 with steps 10/7-9/8-12/11-8/7 and 1-9/8-8/5-11/6 with steps 9/8-10/7-8/7-12/11;

the three pairs of pentads:

  • 1-5/4-10/7-8/5-7/4 with steps 5/4-8/7-9/8-12/11-8/7 and 1-5/4-10/7-14/9-7/4 with steps 5/4-8/7-12/11-9/8-8/7;

1-11/9-11/8-3/2-12/7 with steps 11/9-9/8-12/11-8/7-7/6 and 1-12/11-11/9-3/2-7/4 with steps 12/11-9/8-11/9-7/6-8/7; 1-9/8-10/7-8/5-7/4 with steps 9/8-14/11-9/8-12/11-8/7 and 1-9/8-10/7-8/5-11/6 with steps 9/8-14/11-9/8-8/7-12/11;

and the pair of hexads:

  • 1-9/8-5/4-10/7-8/5-7/4 with steps 9/8-10/9-8/7-9/8-12/11-8/7 and 1-10/9-5/4-10/7-14/9-7/4 with steps 10/9-9/8-8/7-12/11-9/8-8/7.
