    Re: Counterpoint and Arranging

    Do you have a link for Thinc? Googling it didn't help.

    Thanks,

    Thinc = http://thinc.informatik.uni-bremen.de/indexeng.html

    Look under Download. It is more a kind of learning system.

    Thinc has to be installed in a path without spacebar in the name, i.e. not in C:/Program Files, because between 'Program' and 'Files' there is a spacebar. Create a special folder for it - C:/ThInc would work.

    Unfortunately, this info is only on German. Also, even though it's supposed to be available on German and English, the English version isn't complete. So, it's no use if you don't understand German.

    A great book on the starting of study of counterpoint is "Gradus ad Parnassum" by Johann Joseph Fux. Alfred Mann from the Eastman school of music translated it. Another book he translated is "The Study of Fugue", with excerpts from Padre Martini, Marpurg as well as Fux. You can find both at Borders or have them order it. Mozart, Beethoven, Hayden and others used "Gradus as Parnassum".

    FWIW, it's more than just a great book; it's the classic work on the subject, in which IIRC the concept of species counterpoint is codified for the first time.
