#TBT: Opus 2

In the midst of all the Circus Harmony composing, I thought I might share my Op. 2.

January 1978.

I was 16 and 1/2 years old.

”Prelude and Hymn” for piano.

And it’s awful.  Just bloody awful imitation of Bach.  Breaking all the master’s rules.  Plus it’s uninteresting.

I think I wrote this for a music theory course in high school, but then I thought I took that in my senior year, and this would have been written in my junior year at Lee’s Summit High School.

Anyhow, sound file is below if anyone can stomach it.
