  1. I love it, you've got some fantastic ideas. I loved where you moved to the thick chords, it mesmerizing. One thing I liked especially was your miserere, it's quite interesting. There are a couple things I'm not sure about. My first thing is that you have the sopranos singing high Fs, Gs, and As softly. This is pretty risky, firstly not a lot of sopranos like doing that, secondly musical directors like it even less when their sopranos have to that (in a piece like yours where everyone has an important part of the chord). When it's just the sopranos and altos, I find it less interesting, like on m. 35 and 36. That miserere feels like it could be better, but I'm not entirely sure if I should give my personal insight on that, because it might just be a me thing. m.28-30, I don't think that Bass 1 part is necessary, I think it'd be better in the tenor part. Especially with how important that Bass 2 part is in that series of chords. Also for your cadences at the ends of phrases, you don't need to put a fermata over each chord, I know you might be doing it for playback but ti doesn't hurt to mention. Putting a rall. says the same thing. I think this is a nice sounding piece, with some great parts, and couple parts that need that flat iron finish.
  2. Wow, this song has changed quite a bit since the last time I heard it. To be honest the first time I heard it I clicked off of it cause it bored me. But this version is really good. I listened through the whole thing, and afterwards checked that great summary before the piece. I can tell that this is a meaningful piece to you, not just by how much you say you worked, but by how beautiful it is. Even though this is just a crappy midi voice, reading along to your music gave me chills. Its a pretty heartbreaking piece to read, and the piano complements it so well. I just want to say bravo, you need to either perform this piece yourself or find someone who will.
  3. I think it sounds great, and any intermediate to good choir could sing this well. One things I'd be aware about is overusing dynamics. I can understand giving specific dynamics to have the computer sing it the way you want it performed, but there's a lot of clutter that would get in the way of singing the music. I think the best course of action would be to simplify the dynamics. Or leave it more to the interpretation of the choir director.
  4. I'm not used to writing for Brass, so this was more of a fun experiment with the Trombone's. There's plenty of really hard parts in this song, but it's more for fun than anything else. I didn't quite plan well enough for the limitations of a trombone, and at times I go a bit too fast, high and low I think.
  5. I enjoy it quite a lot, but I feel like the climax of song simply wasn't as long enough as it could've been, before you even realize how awesome it is, it's gone. It's quite beautifully done, but was simply lacking a "click" for me. I don't think it's major enough for you to go out and fix it though, being as it's length fits the form of your music. But in the future, be aware it might happen again.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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'
  12. 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.
  13. Originally I was gonna make a short meme-ish cowbell and triangle concerto but then I created a theme I liked too much.
  14. 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.
