Fugue in G major

Pi: the first 52 digits

Today is Pi Day, so I thought I could post this old piece of mine from back in 2015. I'd posted it in the old forum, but since that's gone I thought I'd take the liberty to post it again here.

Triplets or sextuplets?

Hey everyone, a quick notation query if anyone has any suggestions... one of my pieces has a simple repeated triplet pattern here and there. I beam in 6s but my software groups as 2x triplets, which is technically correct but groups the notes a littl

THE OXEN

 

An SATB acapella setting of Thomas Hardy's poem "The Oxen".

Unfortunately, I only have a tawdry MIDI realization at the moment, but I have been trying this year to find a chorus to record it.
