It's been a while that I joined this group but I haven't posted or introduced myself here so far. I am from Germany and I started using Musescore and composing about 3 years ago. I work as a software developer but music has
become very essential in my life durng the past 4 or 5 years. I also take classical voice lessons. Practicing has given me a lot of inspiration for finding melodies as I often improvise/vocalise over a drone for warm-up.
To get an impression what I've composed so far, you can find several pieces published via my profile https://musescore.com/user/8752261 - mostly in various sets. Last year, I took part in a competition here on the website, the Musescore Composition Competition 2018. One of the sets contain my contributions to this contest, others are melodies to lyrics of existing traditional songs, or accompaniments I made for one or the other vocal piece I wanted to learn.
I've uploaded one first score where I tried for the first time to write lyrics to existing melodies of my own,
and since English is not my mother tongue, I'd appreciate your feedback.
This belongs to a project on which I cooperate with another Musescore user, so I have just added it to this group, I haven't published it yet.
This score can be found here:

For two other scores, I haven't yet got any idea what lyrics could fit, though the melodies somehow sound like these could be songs.
They sound like rounds to me, one isn't exactly a round because I used woodwinds in different registers to replace the choir aaahs and ooohs which I don't like, and I had to adjust the melodies a bit to fit the instruments' range better.
For one of them, I have a work title "As Night is Falling" because it sounded like a night song to me - maybe it provides some inspiration, but you could well suggest another title in case you found lyrics to which it wouldn't fit. It might even be some
bible verse, psalm or prayer line.

There are some more but these still need a bit of preparation.
I would be happy to have inspired one or some of you to write text for these pieces, and I'm very curious what you come up with.
