This is just the result of a little bit of inspiration I had one night, fooling around on the keyboard. (I wonder how many classics were inspired solely by fooling around on keyboards until inspiration struck?) I felt like doing a little melancholic theme with medieval tones, so here’s what came out. Not my longest or most complex piece, by any means, but I like it nonetheless. (Plus, this is my first time using the clavichord, wee.)

Written & recorded with Sibelius; mixed with Audacity.
