Hi everybody.Again a while ago, I know I'm not around much. I have finished another choral piece now. Sadly, I like to write my chorals in German, so the title is Das Opfer der armen Witwe. For…Continue

"Very relaxing to listen to :) I think it gets better and better as it goes further into it. I particularly enjoy the interaction between the harp and flute during the final 1/3rd of the piece. I think it could use a nice little outro to tie…"

"This is something you must figure out! I can see that b 1-7 has a Bb, so the simplest tuning would be DCBb EFGA until the accidentals come in in b8."

Erwin van Delft replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion Duet flute-harp
"Thank you. :) I surely have to reread... So what is the basic tuning I should use in this duet?"

Dave Dexter replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion Duet flute-harp
"No worries, it's a lot to deal with at first.I attached the harp part for one of the orchestral pieces I had recorded so you can see how I signalled changes - it didn't seem to cause any problems, though it's almost entirely drowned…"

Erwin van Delft replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion Duet flute-harp
"Well, that is a lot of information and the only thing I really knew was that a harp has pedals and that the bass cleff is left hand and the treble cleff for the right hand (as with any instrument with more then one staff). So, if you don't…"

Dave Dexter replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion Duet flute-harp
"Harp seems confusing at first but it doesn't take long to approach it correctly (and in general your part seems well-suited for harp, possibly some changes that might be tricky).Basics: imagine that harp only has 7 strings - DCB EFGA. Each…"

Erwin van Delft replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion Duet flute-harp
"Thank you. To be honest, I didn't know that. I have been trying to find things specifically for harp (information, that is) but I tend to have a problem finding what I am looking for. Do you suggest I change the key of the whole score? Or do I…"

Dave Dexter replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion Duet flute-harp
"I think this works well generally. My suggestion would be to fill out the range of the harp - double the range of the low chords. Harp is excellent at that kind of thing, an eight-note chord can be spread with ease. Much like larger-scale…"

Duet flute-harp

Following my Kyrie from the Glory Mass, I got advice to turn some part of it into an own score. That was a flute-harp-section.Being not familiar with the harp, I did what I could and based the duet (heavily) on the Kyrie.Here is the duet. I know it's not perfect but it is as good as I can get it at the moment.Be honest but gentle, please.See More

"That I am satiesfied does not mean it is good, does it? Because if I thought it was, I would not have posted in Critics. The text is Marcus 12:41-44 The Widow’s Offering 41 Jesus sat down opposite the place where the offerings were put…"

Rowy van Hest replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion The offerage of the poor widow
"You made quite an effort, analysing several measures. I didn't even go there, because there are too many faults in this score. Like I wrote, it would take me several lessons of an hour, just to clean up the score. I think it is water under the…"

Socrates Arvanitakis replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion The offerage of the poor widow
"Hi Erwin, Can I ask that you provide an English translation of your text, so that I may understand what spirit moves things the way it does in this piece. To me the text is of paramount importance for any vocal composition to start with. Otherwise I…"

Erwin van Delft replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion The offerage of the poor widow
"Yeah, you're right in that, Dave. And I must admit I changed it back for I like that better. I have been relistening the whole thing over again and I like it as it is. Only the ending bothers me a bit, still...."

Dave Dexter replied to Erwin van Delft's discussion The offerage of the poor widow
"Wrong is subjective. This is a wider issue than Erwin's piece - if you're actually operating on the assumption that you can state with authority "wrong is wrong" in terms of a composer's harmonic preferences, that's…"

I greatly enjoyed our recent conversation, about Holland, Europe, languages, etc.

Your English is quite good, and I found are talk both interesting and entertaining.

Thanks.
