    I've noticed that you use the key note of the harmony in the bass rather scarcely - why's that? (Example, F major with c in the bass instead of f). Also, doubling the 3rd (having two voices sing the d of a B flat major chord) happens often - is this done on purpose?

    Letting the tenor jump from b flat to f sharp at the end of the second bar is daring - are you sure you want it that way? It's inconvenient to sing and a bit unusual.

    That's why.

    I still have a few kinks to work out though. Thanks for the error highlights.

    I have made the tonic double in all the main chords and if any other note doubles along with it, it's the third.
    I have hummed all the lines to check how easy it is to sing.
    The bass usually plays the tonic of the main chords.
    I have tried to destroy all consecutive octaves and fifths.

    This is the result.

    Bar 25 was meant to have a C, not an A.

    In bar 7, think again about letting the tenor jump from e flat to a (tritone). I know it's hard not to fall in that trap of parallel fifths when going from E flat to F, but this tritone isn't very nice.

    I have learned that major thirds shouldn't be doubled, but there might be different traditions.

    Can you do consecutive unions like this?

    I see this occurring a lot in the Majesty hymn book.
