Charge-charge, current-current, and Raman correlation functions are derived in a consistent way using the unified response theory. The theory is based on the improved description of the conduction electron coupling to the external electromagnetic fields, distinguishing further the direct and indirect (assisted) scattering on the quasistatic disorder. The two scattering channels are distinguished in terms of the energy and momentum conservation laws. The theory is illustrated on the Emery three-band model for the normal state of the underdoped high-Tc cuprates which includes the incoherent electron scattering on the disorder associated with the quasistatic fluctuations around the static antiferromagnetic (AF) ordering. It is shown, for the first time consistently, that the incoherent indirect processes dominate the low-frequency part of the Raman spectra, while the long-range screening which is dynamic removes the long-range forces in the A1g channel. In the mid-infrared frequency range the coherent AF processes are dominant. In contrast to the nonresonant B1g response, which is large by itself, the resonant interband transitions enhance both the A1g and B1g Raman spectra to comparable values, in good agreement with experimental observation. It is further argued that the AF correlations give rise to the mid-infrared peak in the B1g Raman spectrum, accompanied by a similar peak in the optical conductivity. The doping behavior of these peaks is shown to be correlated with the linear doping dependence of the Hall number, as observed in all underdoped high-Tc compounds.
