from “Homer in Cyberspace

It is customary, at least on older operas, to have a passacaglia or ground bass at some point. OK, my piece is kind of opera kind of musical, but I couldn’t resist having one in HOMER. So here it is. (For those who don’t know, ground bass is one that repeats over and over. The musical excerpt below shows you the bass line which you can follow throughout.
