Hi Henk

Thanks for your compliments and advice on my music! Everything stays 'in progress' as I say. Music is never 'finished'.

Greetings Wendy

Extremely accomplished writing there henk. Vater unser I enjoyed how you broke up the phrases before creating a longer line. Harmonies interesting - reminds me of Frank Martin and a more tonal Poulenc with some more modern currents. Can tell too you know your Bach cantatas. To pull off the final cadence (believe minor V to major I) after the chords with the added 2nds and 4ths preceding and seemingly moving off to a chromatic tangent was excellent.

Your music is beautiful and interesting. I love choral music and the combination with orchestra is very effective. Thanks for posting it.

If you're on a PC try downloading Lame from here, The software is free and is available for Mac, PC or Linux. that should allow you to change formats with relative ease.

Neither piece actually plays. It would be nice to hear some of your music.

Heb je al muziek ergens geupload, Henk? Misschien een van je liederen? Is een goede manier om ze snel te laten circuleren. Ik heb het idee om er ooit van te kunnen leven opgegeven dus ik et gewoon alles dat ik maak op het net. Zolang mijn naam eraan verbonden blijft vind ik het best.
