Quote from: vandermolen on December 01, 2018, 01:12:12 PMI listened to 'New Year's Resolution' just now. I liked it, especially the opening movement and I liked the juxtaposition of different tempos in places. Powerful and thought-provoking music.
Quote from: Cato on December 01, 2018, 02:53:26 PM I must admit that I was wondering for a while, while tediously entering all those 32nd notes , whether or not I was wasting my time on something of little value. But even if one person has been positively affected, then the effort was indeed worth it. Many thanks! 0:)
Quote from: vandermolen on December 01, 2018, 10:58:54 PMNot at all Leo. I thought I'd just sample the work (it was quite late last night) and I ended up listening to it all as it intrigued me - it's not like any other chamber music I'm aware of.
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on December 31, 2016, 05:06:36 AMThe generous praise is making me blush. I am glad to have helped, the piece is highly engaging, so that work on the project (the typographical and proofing work on my part, that is) never became tedious, because I found the music ever rewarding, its crystalline austerity setting off the Psalm text with a rich poignancy. The score has a ritualistic monumentality which I find powerfully impressive; and I believe it no exaggeration to call it a major new contribution to the unaccompanied choral literature.
Quote from: Sergeant Rock on January 03, 2017, 04:50:51 AMA gorgeous piece, Cato. Sounds even better now in Karl's realization. I listened to it twice yesterday and will listen again today.Sarge
Quote from: Robert101 on June 20, 2017, 08:01:59 AMIt's very expressive. I like the way the harmonies flow-- shifting in intensity. Good work!
Quote from: Cato on December 12, 2018, 07:57:52 AMHere is an mp3 MIDI Chorus "performing" my choral work Exaudi me: the score was edited by Karl Henning (he kindly added the two-piano rehearsal apparatus at the bottom).
Quote from: Florestan on December 12, 2018, 12:06:21 PMExaudi me, hmmm... Now that Karl is on his way to full recovery, do you think the subject and his contribution were mere coincidence?
Quote from: mc ukrneal on November 29, 2018, 04:14:20 AMKarl would be pleased and I am mightily impressed myself. Though, mind you, it would ne nice to know what the title means...just a little thing... Verily!

Quote from: Cato on January 01, 2019, 04:50:09 AMIf you have not yet had time to listen to New Year's Resolution, I thought you might want to hear it today!The score:http://www.mediafire.com/file/wnh1zexs3k2e9qv/New_Year%2527s_Resolution.pdf/file The mp3 MIDI (which has problems following the score, but...)http://www.mediafire.com/file/y53ua1yug5by5cy/New_Year%2527s_Resolution_%25282%2529.mp3/file
Quote from: Rons_talking on January 09, 2019, 10:07:45 PMThese are exciting works! You might want to spice up the rhythms a bit (more metric and tempo change within phrases, etc,) but it sounds like you're having fun in your writing and the music is better for it.
Quote from: k a rl h e nn i ng on February 16, 2019, 10:57:42 AMI like it a lot, it has a good narrative across the four movements, there is a kind of geometric severity to the character which works very well, and the finale is a very good summation of the musical material and drive to a finish.
Quote from: Cato on May 21, 2017, 02:56:56 PMFor new and newer members who have not had a chance to criticize the work: Here is a link to the MIDI performance and an attachment with the scorehttps://www.dropbox.com/s/i9mlhnvdn88z7gv/Schulte%20Exaudi%20Me%20voix%20-%202nd%20mix%20-%2030%20Dec%2016.mp3?dl=0
Quote from: philoctetes on April 21, 2021, 06:41:11 AMRegarding Exaudi Me:In this piece, I hear the chromaticism of the Renaissance, Arvo Part and Frank Martin, and this is the kind of music that I feel should be playing in the Rothko Chapel – contemplative and meditative – a piece that won't allow you to relax and impels the audience to listen.Your ability to compose a piece of this length and maintain coherence and cohesiveness is no mean feat, and the sound pierces my skull, which is my preference and why I tend toward contemporary and pre-classical period. The sound sticks and lingers, and it forms a near perfect loop, which, even if unintentional, is truly lovely. Overall, Bravo! 😊
