  1. Some info about this piece: It’s based off of the poem by Paul Laurence Dunbar titled ‘Invitation To Love’. Unfortunately because of the program I use the performers in the audio file don’t sing the lyrics (words to the poem). This is the first piece of music I’ve written for a vocalist. Typically I only do instrumentalists and I didn’t know a lot at all about vocalists when I wrote this. I am essentially teaching myself, so if anyone has advice for writing for vocalists please help me out! Hope you enjoy!
  2. Wow, it's been a while since I've been on here! So I'm close to finishing my second vocal piece, and I'm having a little bit of writer's block in the accompaniment line for the bridge. I've got chords in the bass clef, but I can't seem to figure out what to put in the treble clef. If anyone could help me get over this slump, I'd really appreciate it. And as always, general constructive criticism is welcome. Update (December 10, 2019): I had a friend of mine help me out today, so at least there's actually some stuff in the accompaniment line for the bridge now. But it's far from complete,
  3. Hi, im a college student mayoring in music composition. This year Ive been attending a class about composition over poetry. The thing is this class was not very good. Most of my college mates agree that most of the time in class was wasted, and that the professor we had wasn`t very good and had no idea how to keep us engage (unlike most of our college professors). Anyways, this professor insist in the importance of keeping the stressed syllable in a strong time (first or third beat) everytime. I consider this is a very generic way of working over a text. Sometimes in
  4. Hi everyone! This is my first vocal/choral work to post here so far (If I don´t count a jazz song with my vocals which I´ve posted in the jazz section before). I wrote this one for strings, piano and soprano, for a talented Croatian singer Hana Huljić who also happens to be a great composer aswell. However, this is still a demo and the singer on this demo did not have any experiences with singing opera before and she is not a soprano, so it was a bit high for her, but I still love her performance very much. She´s a friend of mine and was very willing to sing the demo for Hana, I´m very th
  5. Hi everyone!!! This was one of my first works i 've done in the past few years and i would be very very glad to share it with you There are two parts: the first one, from 00:00 sec to 03:44 sec & the second part from 03:44 sec to the end of this track. This part (the second) took me over 3 months to find the right notes of this -orchestral strings- melodic uplift. This music includes Chorals, vocals, orchestral strings, piano and xylophones. Thank you for listening! -Ampnoe's-
  6. I want my food, therefore I'll upload here my idea for choral music piece. I'm not sure if this one is going to have words or not, will think of that later and you can say your opinion about it. My questions for you: 1. Is that a good idea? (melody harmony etc.) 1.2 If not- what should I change? 2. How should I continue this piece. I mean, it's just two ideas presented one after the other and then together, it isn't a real music piece yet. so... what should I do with these materials? Thanks :P *Lets see if you notice the big difference between t
  7. Not sure if it fits in the topic, but here is a vocal cover with orchestration of The Rains of Castamere from the Game of Thrones series. Hope you like it and Id like to hear your thoughts!
  8. Hello everbody, This is my first serious choral composition, which I composed to practise counterpoint and voice leading. The piece is an Ave Maria, but the language is Dutch, which made it quite hard to compose music on. It is a hard language regarding accentuation. Dutch text: Wees gegroet, Maria, vol van genade. De Heer is met U. Gij zijt de gezegende onder de vrouwen, En gezegend is Jezus, de Vrucht van Uw schoot. Heilige Maria, Moeder van God, Bid voor ons, zondaars, Nu en in het uur van onze dood. Amen. There is trouble with the audio in this topic,
  9. I wanted to create a dark and romantic mood in this song. The lines are short on purpose. I wanted simplicity, going for emotion as opposed to making a statement. I look forward to your feedback.
  10. This is the first of three vocal chamber pieces I'm working on. They're all based on and adapted from ancient Norse poems (translated into English). The Incantation of Hervor relates the story of a valiant young 'shield-maiden' (Hervor), who visits the burial mound of her father (Angantyr) to demand that he (now a ghost/wraith) give her his magic sword, which she considers her inheritance. I've never written a piece with vocals before. It was certainly a challenge to get the lyrics to match up with the music, and I had to make some minor alterations to and omissions from the original
  11. This is my first time posting on this site! Just looking for some feedback/suggestions on a few pieces. Unfortunately, all I have is a MIDI file for sound, so I suppose that will have to do. Thanks in advance for any comments! P.S. The midi recording has some strange mistakes in it. Most likely because of not wanting to double up on accidentals when different layers in each part share a note.

  15. Hi there! I'm working on arranging Eleanor Rigby for my college A Cappella group. It's my first arrangement, indeed my first composition, that I've ever finished and that will ever be performed. So far, however, I'm not terribly pleased with how it sounds, and I'm not sure why. I was wondering if you guys could take a look at my work and give me some suggestions on what to change, and what might make it sound better! Thanks! We started learning it Monday, and... it's ok. But it's not great, and I don't know why. Something's off about it. Now, I think some of it might be that we're still lear
