Santa With Wish List EmoticonsHello Hi There GIF - Hello HiThere GIFs  ALL FM FORUM MEMBERS

 

Please help NARROW a selection for a GP down to ONE "style" - to get this process rolling!

The Snow Is Back Smiley

 

These are the "styles" among our "Christmas Group Project" selections.

  1. "Medieval-Renaissance Era" (up to 1600AD)
  2. "Baroque-Classical Era" (1600-1800AD)
  3. "Romantic-Current Era" (1800-TODAY)
  4. "Medley/Mash-up"

You can help by picking one of these "styles" now. 

  • You don't need to choose a particular piece at this time. 
  • You can even change your mind later.

LET'S START THIS! 

Okay, I'm having just as hard of a time making a choice (I love them all)! 

I CHOOSE #The Diamond 1 Smiley

I'm keeping a tally (below) as you let me know.  Thank you to those participating! 

FOR REFERENCE:

1. Medieval-Renaissance Era (2)

"In Dulci Jubilo", "Es ist ein Ros'entsprungen", "O Come O Come Ye Emmanual", "Noél Nouvelet" (Sing We Now of Christmas), "Wexford Carol"

2. Baroque-Classical Era (2)

"Sussex Carol", "Gloucestershire Carol", "Corelli: Pastorale", "Pastoral Symphony of Handel's Messiah"

3. Romantic-Current Era (0)

"That's Christmas to Me" (Pentatonix), "Mele Kalikimaka" (Hawaiian)

4. Medley/Mash-up (0)

"Hip Hop Christmas Medley" (Josh Vietti), "Traditions of Christmas" (arr by Stephen Bulla)

btw... Indifference does not show support for a Group Project.

Also, more suggestions of music are not really helpful at this point!  ...unless, of course, you absolutely hate everything that's been presented.

Anything. As long as:

1. It's vaguely reminiscent of Xmas

2. I can play at least one of the parts

Thank you to the members who have voted! 

We still need more members to help narrow down a "style"! 

I don't want to make any assumptions, because members always have the right to change their minds, so...

 

Gordon Shumway - may I place a vote for you in #3, where your suggestion "Mele Kalikimaka" is listed?  Or, in one of the other 3 categories? 

caseclosed - may I place a vote for you in #1, #2, #3 or #4 for now? 

Jim Dunleavy - may I place I vote for you in #1, #2, #3 or #4 for now?

 

FOR REFERENCE (and vote tally):

#1. Medieval-Renaissance Era (2)

"In Dulci Jubilo", "Es ist ein Ros'entsprungen", "O Come O Come Ye Emmanual", "Noél Nouvelet" (Sing We Now of Christmas), "Wexford Carol"

#2. Baroque-Classical Era (3)

"Sussex Carol", "Gloucestershire Carol", "Corelli: Pastorale", "Pastoral Symphony of Handel's Messiah"

#3. Romantic-Current Era (0)

"That's Christmas to Me" (Pentatonix), "Mele Kalikimaka" (Hawaiian)

#4. Medley/Mash-up (0)

"Hip Hop Christmas Medley" (Josh Vietti), "Traditions of Christmas" (arr by Stephen Bulla)

Hi all - 

There are many beautiful pieces that would be really nice as a group project. I would personally love to see us adapt a Rutter choral piece for strings at some point...The Angel Carol might work well and is gorgeous. But that is for another year.

I will play anything (even if I dislike it personally), but I don't have a preference for any particular era. Sorry Emily, I know you are trying to get people to commit. How is this..... I vote against category #4, and for any of the other three.

Not being able to really commit to participating even though I'd love to, I don't feel like I have any right to vote in this matter. But I'd go with 1 or 2.

Thanks for helping out with this Emily. It's absolutely true that my job is easier if I get a suggestion that many people agree on.

The Messiah might be an excellent suggestion since the sheet music already exists. 🙂

Also, it's a classic. Which movement are we most interested in?

AnnyJ - All members have the right to vote (no matter what the circumstances) and you are an important voice! 

I can only place a single vote for you (otherwise I'd be voting for ALL of them). 

Which one would you like?

@Fiddlerman -

So far, we have the most votes for category #1 (twice as much as any other).

#1. Medieval-Renaissance Era 

"In Dulci Jubilo", "Es ist ein Ros'entsprungen", "O Come O Come Ye Emmanual", "Noél Nouvelet" (Sing We Now of Christmas), "Wexford Carol" 

 

Pastoral Symphony from Handel's Messiah is from category #2 - which is the second most popular category.

WANT A FM GROUP PROJECT? (Thanks for the most recent votes!)

Members who haven't voted - seriously, this is not a "set-in-stone" proposition - just a loosely focused indication of interest to help Fiddlerman.

Sorry, I can't make a decision for you! 

 

Maybe go "eeny, meeny, miny, moe" to pick a number 1 to 4, better than nothing?

...it's hard for everyone who loves Christmas Music to make a choice.

For anyone interested - I found a link (for your personal enjoyment) to some free, printable "Antique" Christmas Sheet Music, some of which I've never heard before.

PS.  I'd probably be willing to "jump ship" if I saw some votes for #3 or #4!

#1. But I'll play anything. Excited for another project. Fun to do and a joy to see the final result. Pierre does such a wonderful job. I know it's a huge project for him.

I think category 4 would be fun, so I say #4. 
I see I’m alone with this, but it’s not a problem because I will join in any case!

The Snow Is Back SmileyThank you, Ilona!

You are not alone, since I suggested both of those!    I thought a medley was a great idea and figured if a few people voted for #3 or #4 - I'd change my vote... oh well. 

Did you watch the cello video I posted for "Noël Nouvelet" (Sing We Now of Christmas)?  Shannon Hayden is the cellist (Post #4).  It gets very interesting after she gets her backing set up out of they way!

Hope you like it!

Well, in that case, I'd have to go with No. 1. 

I'll try my best to be able to join. 🙂
