Another prelude for a christening. The composition is going for a majestic sound in the main theme and also with a middle section that is more youthful and careful.
The prelude is composed so it can be easily arranged for organ or kept as is, and played on piano.
My second prelude for piano. This time I tried to extend my composition a bit more with a B section that contrasts more with the theme.
I put music to another poem by Robert Frost. Again for the /r/MonthlyComposition.
I put music to a poem by Robert Frost as part of the October challenge over at /r/MonthlyComposition. I have always enjoyed the work of Robert Frost so I really wanted to try my hand at the challenge.
The inspiration for this endeavour all comes from the game Bioshock Infinite where hymn is used almost as the main theme. I wrote my instrumentation for guitar even though I am not too comfortable with the instrument but I believe the piece is playable.
This was my entry for a friendly competition at /r/MonthlyComposition. The text challenge of the September 2018 Composition Challenge was to set John Masefield's A Ballad of John Silver to music.
Prelude for a christening. A lot of the inspiration came from J. S. Bach when writing this prelude, although the B section is taking more from the romantic era of classical music to give some contrast and dynamic.
Originally I wanted to write some registrations as well in the sheet but when I finally performed the prelude at the christening it was at a chest organ and I ended up playing tutti. This to give the piece a more joyous tone.
Autumn psalm with text from Adam Hirshals Illi. Original post here.
A Christmas carol in a typical Swedish form, a hymn for Saint Stephen (Staffansvisa).
After reading up on counter point and the structure of fugues, this was my first attempt.
