During this time of Lent, music that is of a meditative, more serene quality is always appropriate. During communion this evening, I found myself without a theme. When that happens, I often like using three note motives to get things started. What unfolds is a process by which the three notes expands until, in this case, it becomes a canon. In retrospect, I should have gone elsewhere for the ending. I will freely admit that I went for the obvious and easy ending. But hey, who’s keeping track! All in all, a very stark, simple, but perhaps elegant little improvisation to accompany the procession.
