After a very long (although, yet surprisingly short) year, I have finally completed my first choral composition. Starting out as a four part hymn, it includes a men’s verse and finishes with eight parts.
I kind of stepped out by writing two descants. The reason for that originally was because I wanted the highest to reach up to a D6 (which, for those who are wondering, is the first D above the treble staff). Most sopranos can’t do that so I added a second descant. Somehow in the editing process, they both got lowered, it’s better that way (maybe 😉 ).
I have a more advanced choral piece (and a few orchestral pieces!) in the works. We’ll see if it ever gets posted.
I actually have never sung in a choir (or played in an orchestra). (Perhaps you will think you can tell. 😉 ) As a sixteen year old, I haven’t really had any opportunities so far.
This song is free to use, and as many copies as you like. I would appreciate to know ahead of time though, if it’s going to be performed somewhere. 🙂
