Fanfare and harmony: "Victory"

Well, it's about six weeks or so until Easter, just enough time to learn a new fanfare for an old tune. And a twisty sort of harmony for it.

The tune "Victory" comes from Palestrina, and the most common harmonization is by W. H. Monk. I somehow doubt that my rather... robust, chromatic harmonization will supplant it, but that's really not the point of the exercise. The fanfare is in 5/4 because, ah... because it is.

More Easter music coming up!
