How many parts does homophonic music have?

Homophonic music really refers to music that has a strong melody and accompaniment structure. It can be chordal (like chorales and traditional hymns), or melody with broken-chordal or waltz-like accompaniment. The number of parts may vary - you can have anything ranging from a solo piano work to a symphony in homophonic form - but what's important is a part that shows the melody and another that strengthens the harmony.
