"Thanks for pointing that out.  Obviously the person who wrote the piece on the linked page stole the whole thing from me.  I may need to have a couple friends of mine called Rico and BIg Eddy go have a little talk with that individual."

"Oddly enough a similar proposal was included in the Obama administrations economic stimulus plan in 2009. http://hispirits.blogspot.com/2009/04/let-poets-enjoy-stimulus-too.html"

"Interesting. It seems to hark back to earlier in the 20th Century when modern music flourished. I don't know how many of the trusts and societies remain but the era produced some lasting names, among them the "traditional modernists":…"

Jon Corelis replied to Jon Corelis's discussion Spring and Fall: To a Young Child by Gerard Manley Hopkins
"Thanks for the comment.  I thought of adding breathing or pause markings, but decided against it, since in a piece like this I wanted to leave room for the performers to use such things as their own interpretation directs. I'm in general…"

Kjell Prytz replied to Jon Corelis's discussion Spring and Fall: To a Young Child by Gerard Manley Hopkins
"Hi Jon, this is a pretty piece and I can hear the potential of it. While you are waiting for the singer I believe you can make it more realistic by adding some breathing breaks of natural duration of course. This piece will flourish when you get the…"

Spring and Fall: To a Young Child by Gerard Manley Hopkins

Spring and Fall: To a Young Child by Gerard Manley HopkinsSong for Mezzo-Soprano and PianoOne of numerous revisions I've made of my setting for this famous poem, and I'm still uncertain whether it's successful.  In my opinion a musical setting of a familiar poem ought to have a double effect: the listener should feel both "Yes that's what I knew it was like" and "I never…See More

Jon Corelis replied to Gerd Prengel's discussion Song 'Like a Torch in the Night'
"A very good song, both words and music and certainly as good as many commercially successful popular songs nowadays. I thought though that the line "you are in my sight" was a little stilted.  It might have been better to use a phrase…"

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
Jon Corelis was born in California and grew up in and around Chicago, where he earned a degree in Classical Languages and Literatures at the College of the University of Chicago. He later took a doctorate in Classics at Stanford, and taught Classics and Humanities at Stanford, the University of California, and the University of Minnesota. His poetry, criticism, essays, reviews, and translations have been published in books, magazines, newspapers, and web sites in nine countries, and he has given lectures and readings by invitation in America and Europe. His music has been featured on a literary web site and performed in concert in the U.S and as part of YouTube performance series by professional musicians.

I usually don't include scores to accompany the audio files I post on this site, since I offer some of my scores for sale on the internet, and it wouldn't be appropriate also to have free copies elsewhere on the internet. I'll be glad to email a score pdf for private study to any member of this forum without charge.

Posted on August 16, 2019 at 11:28am 0 Comments

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 2 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…
