With thanks to the folks who have given me advice and feedback on this, I present my brass chorale, based on the German Hymn O Sacred Head, Now Wounded. It is set for two brass quartets, and they trade phrases of the original hymn at the beginning.
This is followed by what was originally conceived as a fugue, but turned into something a bit simpler, but I think still very nice, so I'm calling it a chorale. Some of the flavor of the hymn slips into the chorale section occasionally, and the piece ends with a restatement of the final phrase of the hymn.
I'm not 100% happy with the rendering, yet, but I'm not sure what more do to with it. Give it a listen, and if you wish to make constructive critiques, I welcome them.
