Canon 3 voice in AM (dedicated to Ninon)

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi, Today in Catalonia is Sant Jordi’s Day (Saint Jorge) our National Day. In Sant Jordi's day the streets are plenty of shops, where people can buy books and roses. The tradition says partners give a present to each other. Men give a rose to their partners as a present and Women a book.

Today is a sad Sant Jordi's Day, no books or roses at all on the Street because of Covid-19. That’s why I wrote this short 3 voice canon today as a symbolic present to my girlfriend, so it’s dedicated to Ninon. I think the character is appropiate to the day. She is a nurse and is going to came back home late from the hospital and I will give it to hear when she is back.  

I wish you enjoy it as much as I hope she will 😊

It’s just my second canon, so any comments or apprecitations are wellcome. I had no time to put lyrics on it, and I think I'm not good at writing lyrics anyway 😅. If anyone has and idea for a suitable lyrics any suggestions are wellcome as well.

Best wishes!

Nice. I don't know which ruleset you're following but an outer voice leading tone not resolving up to the tonic after a V chord is a bit odd. Normally not an issue because an inner voice takes it, but there are a couple spots where this isn't the case.
The voice crossing near the end gets a little hairy as well (m. 24) but it's nothing terrible. Good work, though, yes, lyrics would be a welcome addition.

Thank's for your observation Monarcheon! I also notice by the end of each phrase the leading tone doesn't resolve on the tonic, but in other of the to notes of the tonic chord. As you say it's a matter when other voice has the tonic, but on bar 13-14 the leading tone of Mezzo I revolve to the tonic in the Bariton, but one octave below it should. I'll think about, how can I solve that without changing the lines much.

@Guillem82, feliç Sant Jordi, com sempre una peça bonica. No és que tingui molt coneixement de com escriure per a coral així que l'únic que puc dir és q m'ha agradat molt. Definitivament un bon regal per celebrar aquest Sant Jordi.
