Do you want to test your harmony and voice leading skills? If so, try to supply the missing alto part to the above fragment which is taken from my Processional March in C Major (try not to look at the answer ahead of time).
The way you can guess the alto notes is this: look at all three parts (soprano, tenor, and bass) and spell out the chord. I try to always double the root of the chord (except on one occasion) and one note of the chord should be always missing - that's your clue (the pick up at the beginning can be left without a harmony).
Prelude and Fugue, Op.8 by Johan Adam Krygell (1835-1915) who was a Danish organist and composer of the Romantic period.
