Good evening, I am working on an SATB "practice" arrangement - I like to make applied compositional projects for myself when learning new theory concepts. I am trying to incorporate some more chromatic harmony into this SATB piece, the main spots I'm having some trouble with are the 3rds system on the second page, and the circled measures. 1. I want to write in a viio7/V, but what comes next is meant to be a I-V7 move, with passing tones in the A, T, and B to change chords. I've attached a sample of other chords that might work there. I'm aiming for something "big" before moving into the last phrase. I considered a CTdim7 or an Augmented 6th chord 2. I always struggle with changing chords using inner voices, so that's what I'm trying to work on here - I considered having an Eb-Edim7-Bb/F, but not totally sure on that A - Bb C C# / D in alto next measure OR A- - Bb C C# / D in alto next measure T - G G G / Ab OR T - G G Ab / Bb B - E E Enat./ F OR B - E E Enat./ F 3. Some embellishments to the I 4-3 suspension at the end of the piece.
I finally finished my new composition by the end of my summer holiday. The music is based on a few Japanese forest paintings I found online, I used some unusual harmonies and melodies which may remind you of some Japanese style music (plus some chromatic harmonies). Please have a listen
