I think I'm plagiarizing something but not sure what...

Recommended Posts

What/who does this intro sound like?  If I can figure out what, I can change it enough to keep the flavor of the original, but still stand alone on its own two musical feet.  Name that tune!  Any guesses?

I'm drawing a blank. Can you pin it down in terms of a genre that you think you may have stolen this from? An ensemble? A decade? A century? It sounds vaguely Elgarish to me.

Absolutely no idea.  Part of a choral work would make sense, since I spend so much time in choir land, but I can't place it.  It just feels familiar.

Sounds original to me as well.  It has a similar character to Beethoven's Ode to Joy but it is clearly very different.  Perhaps you're "plagiarizing" yourself from an earlier work?  I've done that before, writing something and being convinced I subconsciously stole it from someone and turning out to be actually from a scrap of something I wrote and abandoned a long time ago (I have a bad habit of starting many things and finishing very few).

Thank you both for your help.  If someone notes a reference to ...  later, I'll just pretend it was intentional admirative quoting.  😄

Ditto to all above. The motion around bar 3 reminds me of things from 1812 overture finale, and I agree about Ode to Joy, but it's more like noticing two people who happen to have brown hair in a similar haircut.

Thanks, Gustav!
