Comp Project: Week 5

To continue with my obsession with harmonic movement, I decided to write a hymn (and two simple variations with it) this week. Hymns are great because they tend to have a simple tune with amazing harmonies underneath. It’s really the horizontal direction of the harmonies that I’m interested in rather than the individual chords. It’s where they point to, and how to creatively get to a cadence point. One thing I’ve noticed about this project is that I don’t think I’ve ever written a perfect cadence. That subconscious tradition continues here.
