Here's an original composition I made based off of Japanese poetry.
Would love to hear any thoughts you have on ways to improve the piece!
Hello, composers! So, for your original hymns that you write in MuseScore, I recommend you format them a specific way so that they fit nicely in a songbook and the words are not too small. To make it easy on you, you should create a 'style' that you load into every hymn you write.
I recommend opening up a new, blank score, going to Format > Page Settings, and changing the 'width' to 139.70mm and 'height' to 215.90mm. Then change the 'Staff Space' to 1.118mm.
Then I recommend going to Format > Style > Page and changing the 'Min. system distance' to 5.0sp.
Then to Format > Page Settings > Measure Numbers, and uncheck 'measure numbers.'
THEN to Format > Page Settings > Header, Footer, and, under 'Footer Text,' delete any time you see "$p" and delete "$:copyright:" from the 'even' row.
Finally, I would go to Format > Save Style, and save all this information as "hymn" somewhere you will remember. This way, every time you begin writing a new hymn, all you need to do is click Format > Load Style, and load up your "hymn" style. All this information you just input will be immediately applied to your hymn to make it look good and fit nicely into a songbook.
I learned all this the hard way when I put my congregation's supplementary songbook together. I didn't format the songs this way and they all turned out with the words too small and the page only being able to fit a maximum of four lines. Don't be Haden. Be smart.
Hey everyone :)
I'm a college senior music major and I'm composing a choral piece for my senior final project! I'm going to have a group of singers performing it. It's a work in progress so I'd appreciate any comments, critiques, etc!
This is the biggest project of my college career, so I want it to be awesome. Thanks!
je viens de trouver votre groupe "Musique vocale"
Je suis membre de plusieurs chorales et j'enregistre toutes les partitions de ces chorales avec MuseScore, fichiers que j'enregistre sur le site de Musescore. (j'en ai mis plus de 130 et j'en ai encore d'autres)
Mon essai gratuit de un mois étant terminé et, malgré mes recherches (et le fait que j'avais enregistré les références de la carte bancaire), je n'arrive toujours pas trouver le mode d'emploi pour valider l'abonnement "Pro"!
quelqu'un pourrait-il m'expliquer (en FRANCAIS) comment faire pour s'abonner à MuseScore Pro ?
Merci d'avance !
Okay so, I know this isn't technically a choir thing, but I really need opinions on a song I just finished writing, because I feel like there is something weird about it, but I can't really think of what it is. Does anyone know what I should do? Please leave suggestions, I honestly don't know what to do.
Help me out! I composed a thing, but don't know how good it may sound, so please listen to it and give me a comment, that will change me positively. I will be waiting for your comments.....
Hey I'm new to songwriting and This is a song i've started called "Too Much Anxiety" It's not complete but if you could give suggestions on it that would be great! Thanks!!!!
Hello! I thought I would share this with you guys really quickly. I set the poem "The Gift to Sing" for SATB choir, and figured you might like to hear it, since the meaning of the poem and the composition is one that many of us live by - there is nothing better or stronger than the gift to sing. :)
I would also love any critiques you would be willing to offer, because there are still a few chords and things here and there that I am unsure about. I know that this piece requires a big range for each vocal part, but I think it should be manageable (at least from a soprano's perspective) - so if you have any thoughts on that as well, I would love them!
This is a really special piece to me, as it is for my old choir director, who is the one who inspired me to pursue music as a career. I would appreciate any and all comments and critiques you have, because I want this to be as good as possible when I give it to her!
Thank you so much! Happy composing and arranging, everyone! :D
I've never actually been in a choir, oddly enough
I've uploaded a lot of Bach chorales and Schemelli songs of which latter I added the tenor and alto voice to create SATB 4 voiced mixed choir settings.
Here all 389 Bach chorales and all Schemelli choir settings will be put in.

Hello All! I've just started a small competition for fun at this page: https://musescore.com/groups/ccc/discuss/3621921
It's for choral compositions only! There were no groups for that yet, as, as you likely know, there are only so many groups for choir music at all :/
Anyway, I'm new at competitions, but I'd love to see some of your faces there! I want to try to bridge the gap between the choral community and everyone else on musescore!
Oh, and for you pop arrangers, there is an arrangement division! (although you could also do things like my Aase's Death XD)
Thanks! Andy (Texadon, Nextadon, Hexadon, etc.)
I've edited and uploaded a lot of canons and rounds. Feel free to use whatever you find there. The group is named "Canons". And, of course, if you have some sheet music to add to the group, I'm grateful.
