The meaning of the group

I saw this group and thought - oh, finally something for me. But wait! No! It isn't! But I wish it was. And I hope that it isn't only my wish, that all of you, conjoined in this group, in some kind of commonwealth, want the same thing somewhere in their soul. Let me explain my bidding then.
I, member of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church wish this group to be what it is supposed to be; that means: less arrangements, more compositions. If we are Christian composers, no matter whether Catholic or Protestant, we truely should compose a lot, but things more ambitious than just songs and chants. They are indeed important, but people can handle on their own with those. Composers are to do something more. Where is Passio? where is Missa? Where is Magnificat?
I see I'm in minority, because pretty everything in here is in English. God knows everything, understands every tongue, not only Hebrew, Greek and Latin. As a Catholic, I find Latin the most universal, even though not many people can understand it. Its sound is marvellous.
Therefore I do admonish you to work on something bigger than just chants or simple instrumental pieces glorifying such trivial things as they currently do.
I call you to create ad maiorem Dei gloriam.
Amen.

Couldn't we make a hymn book together?

Yeah, why aren't we doing a ecumenical hymn book (preferably in english as most people here are english speaking)?
It would be very nice to have a hymn list that we can choose from when acting as musician during a service. They could be translated into the specific language.

So, who's with me?

Julliard

Hi. I've had this heavy on my heart for a while, but am too scared of my (wayy too) Asian parents to tell them. I want to go to Julliard. I am not a prodigy, like my whole studio. I have just decided to take a little break from the world of my overbearing, Julliard graduate, prodigy of a teacher. I really want to go there, but am scared of sharing my dreams of being a music teacher with my family. They are quite...... Honest. And straightforward. I'm torn between reality (I'm not a genius or a prodigy or an overly talented kid) and my dreams (going to Julliard with my BFF, who happens to dance and wants to go there, too). Is it time to face reality, which tells me to give up and get a brain/life/help?

Sabbath

I have a question. Why does the majority of Christendom go to church on Sunday, when it clearly says in the Ten Commandments to keep the seventh day holy?

prayer requests

would you please pray for my pastor and my church. our pastor just received grave news that he has pancreatic cancer and it had already spread to his liver. the doctors say he has between 3, 9 to 12 months. it is a blessing that our joy in tribulation is part of our Christian walk and we are given these situations to take hold of Christ and the faith He gifted us. we have been justified by faith and have peace, access, privilege position, and rejoicing in the confident expectation of the glory of God.

i do wish he'll be able to sing the songs i've written before it's too late.
but i do not know how to convert my music into something that can be played with a piano/organ and can be sung by the whole congregation. would anyone be able to please help?

Insider Tipp: Looking up this groups!

Hello dear MuseScore composer,

Sorry if that sounds odd, but I watch your activity on MuseScore for a long time with increasing interest. The answer is quite simple: You are the born talent. There's something in you and I noticed that quickly. Since I would like to make the group "Orchestra Glory to God", which I founded, a bit by Musescore internal PR here and there, I invite you into my group.

We are all different people, and yet the Christian mission, the Christian faith with which we want to make music, unites us.

I need people who use their scores / compositions to pick up the people to get in touch with them. Quiet music can be very useful in discussing the basis of this common foundation - which we call faith in Jesus Christ!

I look forward to your Feddback!

PS: Please allow me a hint: I am also the administrator of this group here: Praise to God - The international orchestra of the people who believes in God and trust in him.

If you can help me here, I would be very grateful to you!

Christian Based MuseScore Groups

There seems to be a plethora of "Christian" groups on MuseScore, many recently created. While this is fine for Discussion boards, one thing you must realize, those who do not have Pro accounts are limited to posting their scores to 5 groups. Because of this, I only post my Christian based music to one "Christian" group. That group is “Christian MuseScorers”, established in 2012 with over 250 members. I find it suits my needs. The other groups I post to, based on the nature of the score, are:

1. MuseScore Composers (group)
2. All Compositions Allowed (group)
3. Songs with Lyrics, lyrics for songs (group)
4. Original Compositions (group)
5. Self-taught Composers (group)

To view a list of Christian based songs I have posted on MuseScore, search for s0crate (with a zero) in the Search for sheet music text box. Since I am poor, I have created multiple basic accounts starting with the name s0crate. Peace.

Copyrighted Works

Having contacted the owner to confirm, "Great is Thy Faithfulness" is a copyrighted work, and will remain so until 2019. Just thought the folks here might want to know.

Song Requests

DO NOT REQUEST TO ME. Please, I am not some amazing composer that God has appointed to lead worship or anything. I am merely creating this discussion so people who ARE good at writing scores can get ideas.

Rapidly Disappearing Scores

This is just a reminder that I cannot afford a paid account on this site, which means that, as I continue composing at least a hymn a day, my less brand new scores must be removed in order to make room for the newest ones.

It does grieve me when I see that one of my scores has been favorited the day before it is due for deletion. I don't delete in reaction to the favoriting (and, yes, I do LOVE it when a hymn of mine gets favorited), but, due to being on a free account, I have to delete in order to make room for the next hymn that I write.

So, in closing, thank you for favoriting my hymns, and please do not be offended when I must quickly delete them.

It's just a plain fact that I need the room.

A Very Serious Prayer Request

I have come to the understanding that God held me back from my daily reading (both Sunday and today) until I should have sat through an intense session of prayer with my brothers here.

We did not do our normal Bible study (though Scripture did get read during it), but, instead, we went before God in prayer. An attack of the enemy got revealed to the ministry. The exact nature was not revealed to us in the meeting, but it seemed very serious.

Immediately I began hearing the Reverend's words, in my spirit the Spirit was telling me. I'm God! I got this! More Scripturally, "Cease! I am God!" (Psalm 46:10).

Twice I was called upon to pray aloud (the second time, I had wanted to share Hebrews 11, but I was called to pray instead, so I did). As I prayed, I recalled aloud the incident where a foreign king was speaking and writing great slanders against God, and the king of Judah took that scroll and stretched it out before the King of Heaven, and prayed that He should prevail over this wickedness that had come against His people and therefore against His own Name. At one point I even shared the text of the first stanza of today's hymn. http://tinyurl.com/billseymuse

It was after having left the prayer meeting on a particular high, that I settled down to read the daily readings from Sunday and from today. You're going to LOVE it! Psalms 110-112 (Sunday's) and Isaiah 54 & 55 (today's)!

WOW!

My friends, we desperately need your prayers, and what actions the Lord would have you conduct on our behalf, this day! Batter the doors of heaven for us until they should open to your pleas!

I should also share that the hearing that had been scheduled for July 2nd has been indefinitely postponed. It will be rescheduled (very likely on extremely short notice), so stay in prayer over that as well!

A Hymns Competition: The Biblical Rebuke

A hymn must do at least three things:

1) It must glorify God

2) It must teach solid Christian theology

3) It must speak to the performer(s), and through them, to the hearer


It can also go beyond this in its message. I have noticed a lack of hymns that have a message of rebuke that can convict the sinner (even that one saved by grace is still a sinner).

I would like to see a sort of competition of hymns written to point out that which makes God grieve, and that we see being committed all around us. To be successful, of course, a hymn has to grab the heart (the third requirement, above). Let us see how much we can lovingly express.

I will enter my own hymn, "A Letter to America" at http://musescore.com/user/78859/scores/105174 to begin.

Value

I'll ask this group because I believe I'll get an honest answer here. Let's say I post a piece here that turns out to be very popular. Even though I've identified it as being copyrighted, what's to prevent someone from printing it and using it at will? They simply like the piece and will use it privately, but they didn't have to buy the sheet music anywhere. From a business standpoint, it does me little good to post a piece here, correct?

No more "Play" button

Suddenly, today, I cannot listen to any sheet music here online. Maybe someone can explain. Is there a limit to how many you can listen to (over a month, or year, or whatever)? I looked for rules, but couldn't find any. I am using this program for free, so maybe I need to be a pro to have unlimited "play" time. (?)
