10 Months On

 
https://musescore.com/user/16013626/scores/5560421

This is a piece that means a lot to me. I started writing it back in late October, inspired by events in my life from the previous few months. I worked very slowly on it, maybe a minute or so every few days, but what it meant to me was quite a lot. 

It got halted in November, after just the first 16 bars had been written.  

Almost 6 months on from that, I decided to carry on, realising that I could use it as a way to see how I've changed as a composer since then. The short answer is - I haven't. The first melody still came back. The second section represents where I've been in the intervening 6 months, but ultimately I've discovered I'm still the person I was, 10 Months On (from July 2018). I'm pretty happy with that.  

I hope you enjoy it. This is not a work intended to be criticised too hard, and I have no plans to edit it. This is just what came to me to write, not something I've slaved over.   

That's coming next month...

Lyrics Translation

I have recently started a composition for SATB choir, and I have decided to use the lyrics of a Bach chorale. The only problem is that it is, of course, in German, and it being in English would make it much easier as I am obviously English. I haven't been able to find any translations of it, and of course Google translate is very good, so if there are any German/English speakers on here who would be willing to properly translate it, I would be much obliged.

Here are the lyrics:
"Ach Gott, erhör' mein Seufzen und Wehklagen, lass mich in meiner Noth nicht gar verzagen, du weisst mein'n Schmerz , er kennst mein Herz, hast du mir's auferlegt, so hilf mir's tragen!"  

I was thinking...

I have been making songs on GarageBand, and I wanna post them to my YouTube channel, but I’m too shy to do it. I didn’t want to be embarrassed by anyone. I have 12 songs. I made my own 3, I made 8 from video games, and 1 I made my own but I deleted it.
If anyone has any ideas on making new songs, feel free to text me back.

Variations on a Theme for Piano (Feedback Super Duper Appreciated)

Heyo, so this is basically my first fully-fledged solo piano composition. It's a set of variations  that I was hoping to enter into a competition soon. I should note that I have minimal piano experience myself, so if anyone notices a part that is literally unplayable/incredibly unconventional, I would super duper appreciate if you could point that out to me. All feedback is appreciated--thank y'all so much!
