Diabelli Project 149 - SATB Chorale

The Diabelli Project is about offering my weekly flash-composition sketches freely to all. Like Antonio Diabelli's theme, these sketches aren't great music. But perhaps (as in Diabelli's case) there's a Beethoven out there who can do great things with them.

I've been listening to a lot of renaissance and early baroque choral music recently (as you can tell from my review posts). Those works inspired me to return to basics with this week's flash composition. It's a simple four-part choral work, with each voice entering with the same motif.

My apologies for the score. I should have planned ahead so the last measure isn't so cramped. But I hold myself to a pretty tight time frame for making the fair copy, just as I do for the initial sketch.

As always, you can use any or all of the posted Diabelli Project sketches as you wish for free. Just be sure to share the results. I'm always curious to see what direction someone else can take this material.
