Another fairly long hymn, making it a bit of a challenge for the “Hymnprovisation” section. I was actually not sure if it would work at all for “Hymprovisation”, but I’m pleased with how it came out. I also took it at a faster clip than usual, since it is mostly quarter notes. A decision I may have regretted after a few times through. Anyway, I took some liberties with the emphasis and interpretation of the sections of the tune.
