I cut loose a little today. There is sometimes (or self imposed, as is my case) difference between concert improvisations and liturgical improvisations. Generally speaking, I reserve more traditional forms and styles for the liturgy, but today I went for a slightly freeform postlude based on the chant Lauda Zion. It was the last Sunday the choir sang and I figured it was time for a bang. A small bang at least.
I can certainly go more tonally crazy than this, but this is a liturgical improv on Pittsburgh’s South Side. One doesn’t need to go full France-1960 and I’ll leave it at that. There’s a bit of noise in the background, but hey, it is a postlude. Enjoy!
