A favorite welsh hymn tune - HYFRYDOL

For the hymn tune genre, the Welsh setting known as HYFRYDOL is a favorite on all sides of every pond on the planet. This utterly singable tune encompasses the range of only a sixth, and was composed and published by 33-year-old Roland Huw Pritchard in a songbook intended for use by children. Adults...

Re: Faure Requiem for Brass

I've never experienced the work - singing tenor - as somber. More soothing, and at times triumphant. (And to that end, I would suggest the Hosannahs in the the Sanctus, which I think you might have in the Horn, be more prominent - there's one of the triumphant moments, reminiscent of the Shofar.) Ca...

Re: From my composing room - DIADEMATA

You and Randy both on the reverberance! Unfortunately for you two, this is exactly the ambience considered ideal for this sort of material. And I'm only using four seconds - Bach had about seven. And my 'market,' such as it is, is similarly predisposed. I've tried the GPO choir lite and in four-part...

From my composing room - DIADEMATA

Many folks might be familiar with this hymn tune, and like the previous entry, it features 'party horns,' also referred to by one organist I know as 'vuvuzelas.' I speak, of course, of the horizontal row of trompettes en chamade which in some places are antiphonally placed at the rear of the room. W...

Re: GCPO...with Party Horns!

I think in the case of rendering an organ in a concert environment - for example, in use with a small orchestra - the entire ensemble should be rendered in the appropriate chamber. So the organ should be appropriately voiced (there will be no 32' reeds on the pedal!) Most concert environments are mu...

Re: GCPO...with Party Horns!

I know you're specifically after that sound, and most users of software organs are, so you're certainly not alone on that preference. Players of actual hardware pipe organs want that sound, too. Most of them would tell you the most important stop on the organ is 'the room,' by which they mean Westm...

Re: Amazing Grace (Concert Band and Organ)

My favorite bit was at the end - after four luscious minutes, the woodwinds in the cadential diminuendo was like the first day of spring. Beautifully done.

GCPO...with Party Horns!

Last time you saw a pipe organ, you may have noticed pipes arrayed horizontally - maybe even at the back of the room. If you asked about them someone probably told you they were called trompettes en chamade . They are also known as party horns! My latest workup of hymn setting CORONATION adds a prol...

GCPO - my best friend!

Nothing has given a boost to my own compositional activity than adding GCPO realizations to my Finale scores. (I primarily write for choirs/congregations accompanied by pipe organ.) I thought I would share one of my favorites, which shows off GCPO's prowess - you can hear the different registrations...
