"Hi Dane,
First listen:  Too much material presented too fast.
'One must conceal the depths. Where? On the surface.'
I could not perceive the depths at all.  It seems everything is on the surface.
Second listen with score:  Better. At least througly…"

"Hi Ali,
Apologies for the late response. 
It does come across a little more nuanced now (although I thought the original at its fixed dynamic worked quite well. It still has its "bittersweet" mood.
And good that you sorted out the piano part which…"

Hi everybody, hi Dane,
I did the rewrite paying due attention to your critics. 
-I added dynamics which I found out badly missing. Apparently
I did not notice because of the warmth of the feelings.
- I corrected the bars…"

"Hi Dane,
Thank you very much.  Apparently I forgot the pianist(you!) at bars 48-53...  I changed it immediately.
I will post the new version here later with the below changes.

Yes granted,  repetitions.  I will review them.  This may take a…"

"Hi, Ali,
A nice piece, emotive, given you switch between concordant harmonies and the more discordant, a kind of bittersweet. I thought the repeats were ok but would have liked some variation during a repeat. (That's just me) Perhaps there is some…"

"Douglas has written a reply and  I replied to it.
I do not know how Douglas found this thread.  
I do not think there is any problem.  This thread had gone down
without any comments, if I am not mistaken.  
All the best.

"What's going on, Ali?
I'm certain I commented on this piece as I did your variations. This new site upgrade makes it difficult to keep track!"

"Thank you Douglas,
I do hope it will be performed some day.  May be after me.
Text to speech is a difficult area of the tech nowadays.  There is almost nothing
available for free or a reasonable price.
I appreciate your interest.
Ciao.

"I would like to hear this with actual people singing.  There is no doubt the midi doesn't do it justice.  I like the base and drum remaining constand during the rising chords.  Nice effect. 
It seems you're writing something that might be performed…"

Ingo Lee replied to Ali Riza SARAL's discussion Forty one variations on a Hymn - for Classical Guitar
"Hi Ali - I'll bet the Villa-Lobos prelude you played was number 1 in Em?  That's the one all the guitar players wanted to play after they heard Segovia do it.
This piece is well done but it is very personal and it is asking a lot from your listeners…"

Dane Aubrun replied to Ali Riza SARAL's discussion Forty one variations on a Hymn - for Classical Guitar
"I've now had a chance to listen to the tail end and there are some wonderful variations here:
At 12'16" the two part one - seems to extend into a different variation at 12'54"
At 13'50" a variation dependent on harsh dissonances.
Particularly…"

No, it is MuseSCORE's soundfont.  But I wrote this music by playing it
on my guitar.  I am a guitar player but not practicing recently.  So, I
recorded it with MuseSCORE.

Dane Aubrun replied to Ali Riza SARAL's discussion Forty one variations on a Hymn - for Classical Guitar
"Hi, Ali,
Unfortunately I didn't have time to listen throughout (hectic here at the moment) but I listened up to about 12'16".
It's very nice (and if that was you playing, very well played). A score would have helped to check the start of each…"
