Output of musical endeavours since April, roughly speaking

Here is the list I needed. I put it into a database because it is very confusing to handle. About 52 short pieces, 42 of them in 2 collections. Some with varying instrumentation.

If I can get some inspiration from these tropes - these musical phrases, in 9 months of experimenting, at the same time studying Gradus ad Parnassum and various music books I had long forgotten about, surely there are other 'real' composers who have been composing all their lives who can also.

My latest is a barbershop quartet version of Psalm 96. I could use some feedback from a real quartet - tell me if it is singable!

These are all available on my YouTube channel here.

Let me know if you think you would like to perform them for real. I would like to work with some performers. I am looking locally.

I can help with anyone who would like to work on new material, all 929 chapters, 23000+ verses are available in music XML or PDF format online - look at the music page.
