Russell Sansom replied to Stuart Andrew's discussion Concerto for Clarinet, "For Eloise"
"i REALLY liked this piece ! when i was listening with my eyes shut i was imagining a steam train driving through the Wild West - and possibly a film score for a Disney cartoon version of Calamity Jane .  In contrast to Tyler, i really liked the…"

Russell Sansom replied to Lara Poe's discussion A couple of pieces of mine
"love both these pieces - you're a very talented lady!  it sounded like birdsong to me in your walk in the woods.  A bit reminiscent of Richard Rodney Bennett's Bird's Lament."

Russell Sansom replied to Russell Sansom's discussion Coventry Carol (Lully Lullay) - arrangement.
"my church choir will be performing this piece at our annual carol service on Sunday - and even though i do say so myself, it sounds lovely.  So very happy with it.  Wish i had recording equipment so i could share with you."

Russell Sansom replied to Russell Sansom's discussion Coventry Carol (Lully Lullay) - arrangement.
"can you point me to where you feel there is discord when you didn't expect it?  i'll take a look and see if it sounds the same playing it on my piano as it does on the musescore program.  I've quite often found that what i've written at the computer…"

Russell Sansom replied to Russell Sansom's discussion Coventry Carol (Lully Lullay) - arrangement.
"i think you missed the point of my posting Ray - this is all my own composition, it's only the words that i did not write.  The actual musical notes came out of my head, no-one elses, i simply put them to the Coventry Carol words.  Perhaps then, i…"

Russell Sansom replied to Omar Benmegdoul's discussion Piece for bass, guitar, piano, rock drums and organ(?)
"i felt there were some really great chord movements going on, and a couple of passages where there was a more distinct melody above gave it more edge.  My advice (if you care to take it, or leave it? it's your piece after all), would be to add in…"

Russell Sansom replied to Russell Sansom's discussion Coventry Carol (Lully Lullay) - arrangement.
"ok, tried it as a wave file, but it was too large, had to go for Midi, with even worse sound quality.  if any one can tell me how to save mp3 files from musescore i'd appreciate it!"

Russell Sansom replied to Georgia Bondy's discussion Morte - Choir Arrangment
"i too thought it could be developed into a longer piece - had a European filmic quality to it in my opinion.  Very nice, and I liked the recording.  I think it would work best with only a small number of singers to keep the sound as paired back as…"
