There are some days, as a composer, and more specifically an organist composer, when I relish in good chorale writing. On those days when I play the chorale harmonizations of Bach or Vaughan Williams, they are so perfect and I never feel the need to do something to make them more exciting. That being said, keeping one’s voice-leading and chorale writing skills in good shape can lead to a piece like today’s Lenten Improvisation. It’s a chorale. Simple as that.
