Spem in Alium - the 40 part motet by Tallis

Hi all Yesterday I finally completed a project I had been intending to do for a few years: I've sung all 40 parts of Spem in Alium. http://www.dwsmp3.com/spem.htm I hope you enjoy the swirling effect of this amazing motet, quite unlike anything else created by an English composer, although some of t...

specifically, those that celebrate the REAL meaning of the occasion
Yup, I reckon I did catch the spirit (in my earlier post) - I'm just a little unserious at times... you'll have to forgive an old man his foibles... :-)

identify the piano originals?

Hi all A recent project, just completed today, has been to typeset and then perform some arrangements by my friend Duncan Saunderson of carols set to tunes by Poulenc and Nielsen. They work very well. But here's the quiz - who can identify the piano pieces from which these arrangements were taken: h...

Thanks Lance and LM I'm glad you enjoyed the Lamento. I should mention, in case anyone has been frustrated, that any links on my site to songs that are housed at toptempo will be working soon - the server there disappeared with no explanation just over a week ago and toptempo's manager is doing his ...

Riu riu is quite popular with the choirs I sing with. Interesting to see the translation (is it your own?). I've also performed the piece here (with my own paraphrase) http://www.dwsmp3.com/riuriu.htm You will find a few "obscure" Christmas carols on this page (and there will be a few more in the ne...

Youtube is indeed a marvellous resource. One of my own particular fields (singing countertenor) has led me to start a collection of links to videos involving countertenors. The list so far is here http://members.tripod.com/countertenors/ctvideos.html Youtube also includes a lot of rubbish videos by ...

Lamento d'Arianna

Sorry I've not written much here, I don't write words so much as I write and perform music itself and let it speak for itself. By way of amends for my inactivity on the forum, some may like to hear my performance of the 5 part version of Monteverdi's Lamento d'Arianna, one of my all time favourites ...

De-lurking for a quick update on my musical endeavours

Hi all Still reading your posts with interest, but always find others "say it better" than I can, so I've been just lurking, as the Net expression has it. However, I venture to de-lurk for a wee while now just to let you know of some interesting and unusual musical creations I've been involved in. M...
