    A rehearsal file for last Whitsun ... for Bach lovers.

    This time it's Bach, from the Pfingsfeste (Whitsun) Cantata.

    The alto line is the cor anglais in this rendering.

    Another "ear worm", at least for me.
    I only had just over a week to put this together, a very rush job.
    It strikes me I should revisit it and smarten it up a bit.

    Another excellent classical rendering, John. You Have to be happy about finally posting things for us to hear. I think most of the membership enjoys, even reveres classical music, so you'll always find an interested audience.

    This sounds wonderful - don't fret about returning to do more with the project - Naturally, that can be a rewarding thing to do sometimes, but it's not as this urgently needs re-visiting.

    Thank you, John!

    Capably done, John -- though it would benefit by further attention,
    certainly. Then again, I think I can say that about everything I
    ever posted... lol.

    Randy's comment about there being quite a large contingent of
    proficient classical musicians in this forum is quite true, by the
    way. Bring us more, anytime.

    Best,



    David

    This sounds good to me. It's beautiful music isn't it.

    I don't hear anything that desperately needs to be corrected or changed.

    Well, that has cheered me up, and no mistake.
    Thank you all for your positive comments, I wasn't expecting them for this one, I have to admit.

    After I posted the file I listened to it again, and thought "Oh! No" that has so much that needs redoing.
    So I set to work last night ... and then another request came in, so it got put on the back burner.

    I have a stack of arias from more than a dozen Bach cantatas sitting in the in tray, not to mention two Berlioz and one Dvorak one to complete. Sometimes the sheer number gets me down a bit.

    Then I think "what else would I rather be doing?"
    You know the answer.

    And, Randy, you're so right.
    It's given me a huge lift to receive approbation from fellow sequencers.
    I shall post more of my classical sequencing efforts.

    Be forewarned there is more Bach on the way, two arias from BWV 6,
    Hochgelobter Gottes Sohn,
    and
    Ach Bleib bei uns Herr Jesu Christ.

    More ear worms I'm afraid.
    Kind regards,
    John.

    Hey John! Bach was a terrible Rock and Roll composer but he sure had the Baroque thing down. This sounds nice to me.
    I have always been Bach fan and this post does him justice. Thanks, Jay.

    Thank you so much Jay. Be forewarned there is much more Bach on the way. I have the Qui Sedes from the B minor Mass, which I finished in time for Christmas last year, waiting. And two arias from BWV 6, which I've just re-rendered using the convolution reverb in Aria 1.5, with a couple of pipes from the new G-CPOC. I have to say, I'm rather pleased with the result. We'll see what others think. Meanwhile I've posted a very well known piece of Händel. Bach has to be my #1 composer bar none. I started listening and enjoying his music when I was 13 or 14 and have never looked bach (ouch, sorry!) I'm very fortunate that my wife also loves to sing Bach, so it gives me every excuse (not that I need one). It wasn't until two or three years ago that I 'got into' the cantatas. I didn't realise just how much I had been missing. Kind regards, John.
