New SATB A Cappella Composition - The Gift to Sing

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 or anything else 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

A little info?

I was curious about what type of a capella music you are interested in collecting? Are you looking for arrangements of current pop songs? Are you affiliated with an a cappela church and looking for arrangements of worship songs?

Hello!

Hi everyone! I've been a part of the drum corps community on Musescore for a few years now, and have been adding my DCI transcriptions to the groups on here ever since. I've been into making my own original drum corps arrangements recently and noticed that there was no group specifically for drum corps arrangements. So, here it is!

I have no idea how popular this group is going to be, but that's okay. If it does become relatively active, I DO have a few ideas for it. The biggest one I have in mind is a weekly/bi-monthly/monthly drum corps arrangement competition. You know, "make an arrangement for this song," or "make an arrangement that fits this theme," or even "write a full original show." Stuff like that. If it gets big enough, there could even be prizes involved!

Let me know how you think this group should evolve, or if it even should. Also, sorry if the name is stupid. I thought it was clever.

Hello!

Howdy, I'm new here so heres something about me. I have been playing horn for around three years. Its not the only brass instrument I play, but it is superior to the rest. I am about to go in to college as a Music major. Thats me, for the most part. since I have only been playing horn for three years, I am far from knowing everything. So I would love to hear any tips, tricks, or facts about horn, I'm all ears. Anyway, thats me.

Feedback wanted for a Brass Quartet score

in Brass

Hey,

I was requested a brass quartet arrangement for a Stardew Valley song (the arrangement is here : https://musescore.com/user/5174461/scores/3443856). However, I know close to nothing about theses instruments. I asked the "requester" (is that a word ?) for some feedback but it's been something like a month so I'm not sure I'm gonna get any... I'd still like to finish this arrangement properly so here I am seeking feedback :)

I've already been searching the web for advices but I'm not sure theses replace real experience with the instrument.

Some of my worries / concerns :
Some things may be weird, unplayable, and so on. The song is very rhythmic focused, so I think it's important every player can play his/her part very accurately, or the whole thing will
feel unstable - which is why it's not a good thing if some part are weird to play (some percussions would remove this concern, but it wouldn't be a brass quartet arrangement then)

More precisely :
- if there's not enough time to breath
- if a part isn't in the good range for the instrument (too high / too low / makes thing too difficult)
- if a part is just too quick to be played accurately
- if a part is too tiring for the player
- if a part is assigned to the wrong instrument (another instrument would play the part more easily)

In particular :
- measure 5-9 : not sure whether tuba or trombone has the easiest time for this part. It seems to be more in tuba's range but can definitely be played a bit higher if needed.
- measure 10-17 : same as above for tuba/trombone (for both parts). Also I removed a lot of stuff from the bass line (played by trombone) in order to make it more playable, but maybe that's not enough or is not necessary
- measure 18+ for trumpet : is that even remotely playable for trumpets ? Is it too tiring on the long run ? (i.e. I should switch the trumpets often, or even shorten the whole thing because it repeats a lot in the original song)
- measures 26-33 for tuba : is that too quick ?

Thanks a lot !

Rag Tales album

in Brass

My new album "Rag Tales" is out now. You can find it on Spotify, ITunes, Apple Music, and Google Play among others. I got started right here on Musescore when I was invited to the ragtime players group. Please check it out. I think you will enjoy it. Thank you friends. Just search for " CJ Brandt" or "Rag Tales". Thanks again

Choral Composition Competition!!!

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.)
