"This is splendid, and what an art song should be.  The instrument supports the vocal, and the vocal supports the lyrics, which are prominent and perfectly clear throughout.  The rather meandering piano, spiked with carefully placed…"

"Thanks very much for the comments. With pieces like this I'm fine with the performer adding ornament, rubato, varying the tempo, etc., and sometimes say so in the score. As for the scales, it's quite easy to use the internet do a search on…"

"Nice pieces, Jon, and I'm so appreciative of you providing the score on youtube. I won't comment on the rendering because I can imagine a flautist catching the nuances and making something of the rubatos you include. In places it seemed a…"

"A few years ago I tried the trial versions of two or three vocal emulators, can't remember their names now, without success.  The demo samples sounded surprisingly human, but I could never get my versions to sound like them.  Maybe I…"

The fourth piece begins with an allusion to a…See More

"I quite liked this. You've had a detailed crit already so I nothing much to add. I thought the piano part was fairly nifty in places - the leap in bar 5 3rd group is positively Lisztian! I had a different solution from Greg Brus' re bar 17…"

"Thanks for the response.  This kind of detailed analysis is very useful. The strange character in measure 42 is apparently a glitch in the software which I didn't notice.  I'll correct it and report it as a bug to…"

Greg Brus replied to Jon Corelis's discussion The Summer Will Come
"Knowing you, I'm not sure whether the thing in measure 42 is done on purpose or it's a spelling error, but personally I would say it's the latter. Also measure 26 (here it's the correct note but D# doesn't make sense…"

Entre le bœuf et l'âne gris

Entre le bœuf et l'âne grisEntre le bœuf et l'âne gris is one of the oldest Christmas carols, dating from at least the 17th century, and possibly much earlier. The music of the present composition is adapted from Chansons populaires du pays de France by Jean-Baptiste Weckerlin (1903,) and the words from that book and from Les enfantines du Bon pays de France by Philippe…See More

In this blog post I'll mention two recent articles from that site which composers may find interesting.

Brief review: A Medieval Songbook: Troubadour & Trouvere

Posted on June 13, 2019 at 4:57pm 0 Comments

A Medieval Songbook: Troubadour & Trouvere by Feltcher Collins, Jr. et al.  (University Press of Virginia, 1982) is a valuable resource for performers and listeners of medieval music.  

Although the phrase Medieval music is likely to suggest to the general listener Gregorian chant and the church music of such composers as Hildegard von Bingen, there also exists a considerable body of Medieval secular song, most notably by the Minnesingers of the…

Brief review: Complete Country Dance Tunes from Playford's The Dancing Master, edited by Jeremy Barlow

Posted on May 27, 2019 at 12:23pm 0 Comments

Complete Country Dance Tunes from Playford's The Dancing Master, edited by Jeremy Barlow (Faber Music 1986) may be of little interest to most people, but of the highest interest to those interested in its particular subject. Playford's Dancing Master was a collection of traditional songs with basic dance notation which went through numerous editions in the 17th and 18th centuries. It's usually described as a collection of English tunes, but many of them have origins…

Brief Review: The Great Walz

Posted on April 25, 2019 at 10:00am 0 Comments

The Great Waltz is a classic "Hollywoodization" bio-pic, one which hardly pretends to be accurate, but which uses the life story of a historical character as a basis for atmosphere and entertainment. In this case the subject is "The Waltz King" Johann Strauss II, who was responsible for the craze for the dance that conquered Vienna and much of Europe in the mid 19th…
