    Do not stand at my grave and weep

    There was two reason, I wanted both the first and second beat to be nearly equal, and second, I wanted beat 3 to lead into beat one, sort’of like a cresc on each measure. I felt like if I notated it otherwise it wouldn’t send the same message, and choir directors would assume it’s a bit more boring that it is.

    Do not stand at my grave and weep

    I mistyped and actually meant m. 7. And those extra part in the piano were also errors. I guess I didn’t notice them. Thanks for your time

    Do not stand at my grave and weep

    I decided to go onto cpdl.org today for the first time, I was so overwhelmed by shear amount of texts available, which was nice since I had been struggling to find a text to write for. Well I found this one, and it was pleasing to read so I decided to make a (hopefully) pleasing to listen to piece. Its a pretty simple melody, but the harmonies get a little interesting at times. When judging my piece, if you could have a focus on, my harmonies and how effective they are, whether or not my bass part at 22-25 is too difficult for such a simple piece, if the tenor and bass crossing on measure 7 is acceptable and also if my piano reduction is good the way it is rn. Feel free to mention anything else you feel like, I wanted to set a guide on things I'm not certain about in this piece.

    What makes Orchestras better?

    As a learning composer, what is the true difference in writing for a quintet, a string orchestra, and full-blown orchestra. What is the difference in writing styles for the 3? I'm asking this because I feel like I'm not using the full potential of all the instrument (I'm writing a Requiem mass, and paused it so I could learn more about how to write). I was part of a group a few weeks ago. We had a full 200 persons chorus with a full orchestra. And It was riveting, and it left me wondering, how can I do something as powerful with my own writing. All-though I have a boat-load to learn in simple 2-part and 3-part and 4-part, I also want to have some fun. And writing a practice orchestral piece is next on my list. What is the order I should plan/create my music in. What specific techniques are useful for orchestral writing. How can I be like the cool kids with their orchestral pieces.

    Little Elegy

    It's very difficult to play a triplet on an off beat BTW (measure 9). Where does the 3rd note of the triplet go? Because it doesn't go on the 2nd beat. That was the only thing that bugged me. Other wise it's very lovely and I love emotion you produce.
  6. Whenever I try to make a piece for the piano, I always give up halfway because I realize I have no idea what I'm doing. So I decided to do a piece that isn't entirely interesting or challenging, but just something to let me know I can make something 'pretty'

    October SATB a cappella

    This song uses the words of Robert Frost's Poem October When Reviewing this things, I'd love any, but I'd really appreciate if someone could tell me specifically about: - The harmonies - What stands out (both bad and good) - And whether you think I followed the words properly Here is the Poem: O hushed October morning mild, Thy leaves have ripened to the fall; Tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild, Should waste them all. The crows above the forest call; Tomorrow they may form and go. O hushed October morning mild, Begin the hours of this day slow. Make the day seem to us less brief. Hearts not averse to being beguiled, Beguile us in the way you know. Release one leaf at break of day; At noon release another leaf; One from our trees, one far away. Retard the sun with gentle mist; Enchant the land with amethyst. Slow, slow! For the grapes’ sake, if they were all, Whose leaves already are burnt with frost, Whose clustered fruit must else be lost— For the grapes’ sake along the wall.
  8. Originally I was gonna make a short meme-ish cowbell and triangle concerto but then I created a theme I liked too much.

    Sequence (Not Finished)

    I totally agree.

    Sequence (Not Finished)

    I think what aim gonna do is look at what some other composers did for counter point. I’m a singer first, and I usually get over focused on the words. And forget about so much how it sounds. But what they’re saying. And it often leaves me trapped in this homophonic music throughout.

    Sequence (Not Finished)

    I hadn’t even noticed how much I did that. It’s probably because I don’t know what to do on the intense parts that require counterpoint. For example later in the piece at the recordare (m. 255) I don’t quite know how to add parts that make the other parts more interesting, while also making the total sound very intense. Like what I wanted was ‘yo Jesus, I know I have forsaken you and now you’re crucified and scraggy, and I’m sorry’ and that moment I wanted every word to be important. How do I use counter point in while maintaining the intense fear that’s I’m trying to create.

    Es Uzgaju Ganidama (Latvian Daina TTBB)

    Very Beautiful, I'd love to be in a reverbiant area while a choir sang this for real. I'm loving the independence of each part while as a choir sounding beautiful. I disagree with DMT because I feel like the Ahs are beautiful and make the introduction of the choir less surprising. I found myself singing the bass part, the type of bass part I love singing. They seem very important.

    Sequence (Not Finished)

    I'm currently going through a little dry stage in my composition of this piece. I think I started this like a week before the Summer Announcement but never got to finishing it. I'm not sure if I'll do a whole Requiem Mass but RN I'm planning on finishing the Sequence. It's current time is 10 mins. My expectation is for it to be 16 min. Feel free to make any suggestions. Even little ones like "m. 32 sounds weird but idk y" anything is really helpful. The last 10 measures are no where near what the final result should be also. When Completed the whole Sequence should use the words Dies irae, dies illa Solvet saeclum in favilla, Teste David cum Sibylla. Quantus tremor est futurus Quando judex est venturus Cuncta stricte discussurus. Tuba mirum spargens sonum Per sepulcra regionum Coget omnes ante thronum. Mors slopebit et natora Cum resurget creatura Judicanti responsura. Liber scriptus proferetur In quo totum continetur, Unde mundus judicetur. Judex ergo cum sedebit Quidquid latet apparebit, Nil inultum remanebit. Quid sum miser tunc dicturus, Quem patronum togaturus, Cum vix justus sit securus? Rex tremendae majestatis, Qui salvandos salvas gratis, Salve me, fons pietatis. Recordare, Jesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae, Ne me perdas ilia die. Quaerens me sedisti lassus, Redemisti crucem passus, Tamus labor non sit cassus. Juste judex ultionis Donum fac remissionis Ante diem rationis. lngemisco tamquam reus, Culpa rubet vultus meus, Supplicanti parce, Deus. Qui Mariam absolvisti Et latronem exaudisti, Mihi quoque spem dedisti. Preces meae non sum dignae, Sed tu bonus fac benigne, Ne perenni cremet igne. Inter oves locurn praesta, Et ab haedis me sequestra, Statuens in parle dextra. Confutatis maledictis Flammis acribus addictis, Voca me cum benedictis. Oro supplex et acclinis, Cor contritum quasi cinis, Gere curam mei finis. Lacrimosa dies ilia Qua resurget ex favilla Judicandus homo reus. Huic ergo parce, Deus, Pie Jesu Domine, Dona els requiem. Day of wrath, that day Will dissolve the earth in ashes As David and the Sibyl bear witness. How Great will be the quaking When the Judge shall come To judge all things strictly. A trumpet, spreading a wondrous sound Through the graves of all lands, Will drive mankind before the throne. Death and Nature shall be astonished When all creation rises again To answer to the Judge. A book, written in, will be brought forth In which is contained everything that is, Out of which the world shall be judged. When therefore the Judge takes His seat Whatever is hidden will reveal itself. Nothing will remain unpunished. What then shall I say, wretch that I am, What advocate entreat to speak for me, When even the righteous may hardly be secure? King of great majesty, Who freely savest the redeemed, Save me, O fount of goodness. Remember, blessed Jesu, That I am the cause of Thy way, lest lose me on that day. Seeking me Thou didst sit down weary, Thou didst redeem me, suffering death on the cross. Let not such toil be in vain. Just and avenging Judge, Grant remission Before the day of reckoning. I groan like a guilty man. Guilt reddens my face. Spare a suppliant, O God. Thou who didst absolve Mary Magdalene And didst hearken to the thief, To me also hast Thou given hope. My prayers are not worthy, But Thou in Thy merciful goodness grant That I burn not in everlasting fire. Place me among Thy sheep And separate me from the goats, Setting me on Thy right hand. When the accursed have been confounded And given over to the bitter flames, Call me with the blessed. I pray in supplication on my knees. My heart contrite as the dust, Safeguard my fate. Mournful that day When from the dust shall rise Guilty man to be judged. Therefore spare him, O God. Merciful Jesu, Lord Grant them rest.

    Running Nature

    Weird I've also been recently learning overtones. I can control my overtones but I'm learning techniques to make them louder.

    the I before the X means 10 minus 1. so XXXIX is actually 10+10+10-1+10=39
