  1. I wrote this a while ago and listened to it again today and remembered how nice it was, its light music. The work has a fluid form, it's more like a stream or flow of conciousness on a few motivic ideas, so it's both changing and staying the same all the time. The harmonies are good old triads expanded via non-functional (mostly) non-clashing diatonic extensions. I remember I made up some rules for the counterpoint and that it was relatively straight-forward to compose but not much else. The "Bach alla Renaissance" is because it is polyphonic, rather traditionally, but the scales are (the modern) church modes. Modes of Accord.mp3

  5. Guys, please, I've never found it would be so difficult... I'm looking for some choral pieces written in strict mixolydian mode, but I don't want a modern one. I want those old medieval pieces, or maybe from renaissance. It just has to be mixolydian and choral. (preferrably for not too many voices...) Thanks in advance^^
  6. Some harmony exercises from an old music notebook. They belong to an elementary level course and deal with simple Renaissance harmony, so I thought they could be interesting and amusing to do for beginners here (of course, harmonizations in more advanced styles could be done). The exercises are actual Renaissance villancicos from Spanish cancioneros. We were given the top line and were asked to complete a four part harmony following rules from the Renaissance era (if you are not familiar with Renaissance harmony and want to try that style, I can give you some guidelines and pointers). The scores are available (you might need to transcribe some of them from the Renaissance notation, though), but do not cheat and write your own solution. The second song (Alta estava la peña) is transposed one octave up to fit a soprano range. I can provide rough translations of the villancicos if you want, but here is the gist of each song: 1. Soy serranica: It is about a rustic mountain girl who is feeling unlucky and miserable because of unsatisfied sexual appetite. 2. Alta estava la peña: About some plants and flowers that grow on a towering rock formation by a river. 3. Lo que demanda el romero: About a dude who is refused something he wants at the gate of his lover. (the full lyrics are missing for this song). The general structure of the villancicos is ABBA, ABBA, and so forth. I can't seem to be able to attach the score here, but here is the link to the pdf: https://app.box.com/s/rafmotbbpqk56r9h08fm I have some more of those exercises in my notebook, if you are interested. Enjoy!
