"Whoa, another "should we follow the rules" quagmire! Let me just say that counterpoint to me is a misery (I mean mystery)  of the highest order. I have no idea how this would actually sound with real voices singing real words. But I…"

"Here are my comments  regarding the theoretical errors in your composition that I found: (m = Measure) m3-4: Parallel octaves S & B "Ave Ma..." m5: No A in Gra (S) m7-8: Parallel octaves S & T "Do-mi...: m8: The normal…"

"Yes, agree with Ingo, you've done very well. But I'm unsure what kind of feedback and the overall effect you want, like is it meant to be traditional-sounding or modern. It sounds a mix of both here through the way you've harmonised…"

"Rafael, If this is a complete thought, and if it says what you wanted it to say, then how long it is makes no difference. You are the composer. You get to decide how it goes.  You asked how to make it better. That depends on your goal."

"Hi Rafael,  I listened to this a few times, but as it is so short, could not really draw anything from it to comment on other than that it is very heavy on the on-beats (1 and 3). Sorry, but I need to hear something longer to offer any…"

Paul Copeland replied to Rafael Andres Diaz's discussion Alleluia SATB + Piano
"Hi Rafael That is very good for your first composition. As it is not complete may I make a few observations. The piece seems to be in a modal key of d minor without the C# except where you have added one for bar 30 second beat. I would suggest that…"

Charles Burns replied to Rafael Andres Diaz's discussion Alleluia SATB + Piano
"congratulations on your first piece!  It sounds wonderful - and thank you for including the score to read along.  The comment I would make is that it might be good to consider the playability of the piano part.  I'm certainly not…"
