Hi all - I am just back from a month away caring for a sick relative so I am just chiming in now.
SUPER excited that we are doing a Christmas project!!! I love all the suggestions. There is a wealth of beautiful Christmas music out there so it's hard to just pick one! LOL.
I'll add another suggestion into the mix that I think would work very well for strings....Mary Did You Know? But, I am totally good with anything that the group chooses!
Seems very playable even for a beginner like me who hasn't picked up my violin in a month (away caring for a relative and no access). I just sight read the V1 part with no big problems.
Part 6 would give some musical interest - kind of reminiscent of the piano accompaniment for a choral version. I don't think I would tackle it without more time but I'm sure there are people in this group who could do it with no problem. Conversely it would be perfectly lovely without it. So I guess I am saying I could talk myself into either position. (That is a Libra for you!)
Thanks for taking the time to arrange the project Pierre!
PS - what is your thought for when you would need the submissions?
I'd at least like to hear the sixth part in conjunction with everything else.
I would prefer it to be in D, though. Eliminates the G string, and it will make that 6th part noticeably easier for fumble-fingered sorts like myself.
I hesitate to make the suggestion, because I've generally believed if you're going to say something like this, you should help, and I don't think I can: There's very little difference between the other parts. I'd like to see one that pure harmony, and doesn't attempt to be mostly the melody line.
I am very skeptical of my ability to do so, but if you want me to try to come up with such a harmony part, I will.
Ahhh - this is just a point of interest -
Bar 20 appears ( in parts 1->5 ) as this - and the dotted notes and the rest appear not to "add up" - there's an extra half-beat (13/8 hahaha).
Now - of course, it won't (or shouldn't) matter to players, it'll be understood - (hmm, or it might matter if it gets into the click track.... don't know because I don't have Finale)
If I "code that bar up" in Musescore, I will of course get this - and obviously there are lots of other ways to get the full-beat rest back by changing the dotted D before it, or halving the D following (which is possibly what was intended ?), and so on....
Heyyy @Fiddlerman - I'm not nit-picking here - score looks great - I'm just real curious as to how, or why that would occur in a score-writing program - or is it some kind of option in Finale that just says "show rests all the same, it will be understood" ?
No idea - just seemed unusual....
Is it perhaps some artifact of Finale when using a compound time signature ? As I say, just seems odd to me....
Probably nothing to worry about, it's just me being me... 🙂
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
