Improvisation a week

This week’s improv comes from the (short) Chapel Recitals that the Duquesne University Music School has for the organ students.  Though I’m adjunct faculty, sometimes I do recitals as well.  This particular recital was this single improvisation based on the 44th Psalm, verses 10-15.  It’s an impression of the psalm, not a textual improvisation.  I also didn’t have a form in mind as I wanted the form to rise naturally out of the music.  It starts off a little slow, but gets moving quickly enough.
