This arose out of correspondence with Michael Morse on chorale harmonisation (the descending chromatic motif is courtesy of him). I wasn't happy with my first cut at it, so I plugged away until it grew into this…

Playback through Scorch seems to be problematical: I would suggest consulting the MP3. It is, at best, a rough approximation, but not totally misleading…

Printing is A3 landscape.

Addendum 28/11/08: Revised edition with some cleanup of proofing errors and a more specific registration. Note that a) the barest pedal registration (ms.31ff) should slot in at roughly the same dynamic level as the rest of the voices of the harmony, b) the fullest pedal registration (ms.17ff) should not overwhelm the Swell division, and c) neither should the fullest Great registration (ms.41ff).
