Helmsley

This hymn was the first of my Advent harmonizations. This simple hymn tune can be difficult to sing with continuity due to the long phrases, which I’ve helped stagger a bit by adding offbeat anticipations to create suspensions. Enjoy.

Veni Emmanuel

I’ve decided that I’m going to try to put out some kind of compositional work every day. I’ll be adding a backlog of pieces, but for now, please enjoy this harmonization of “Veni Emmanuel.” Happy Advent, everyone.
