Lately, I’ve been doing the first sketching out of these hymns on Bass Clarinet, just to get more practice with the instrument. I kind of liked the way this one turned out as a rough sketch, played very quickly, so I went with it.
Would be tough to sing along.
The “improvisation” at the end was more a reflection of my current mood than anything else.
