Diabelli Project 164 - 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.

The last post (No. 163) was a setting of the Benedictus. I must have still had choral music on my mind when I wrote this flash composition. It's just a simple hymn tune set for SATB chorus. If I were to really work on this, I'd definitely clean up some of the weaker voice-leading sections. But for 10 minutes writing without any internal filter, I'll let it pass.

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.
