Agnus Dei (1975)

I composed this as an assignment for a modal counterpoint class. The requirement was to compose in the style of a Gregorian chant, adhering strictly to the conventions of the time. Here is what I composed in its entirety, which is 27 measures long.

I got a B on this assignment. I did OK for a full 12 measures, but after that, there were several criticisms.

A lot can go wrong in less than a minute.
