    Rainbow | new choral piece

    Hello!

    I return again with a choir song for SATB that I composed for a competition that's coming up here in my country, Estonia. The mp3 uses Alicia's Keys piano and VSL strings for playback, but actually meant for voices, as I said.

    The lyrics are written by an Estonian poet Indrek Hirv. I'll give you a rough translation as to what they mean:

    Rainbow

    I've been looking for the place
    where the rainbow drinks

    I believe she will find
    her carefree ways
    from the lake of my childhood

    Her clear colours
    and her bold arc
    against the retreating cloud of thunder

    From the river she might find
    her wisdom

    her ability to come and go
    without asking anybody

    the ability to be just air
    only a reflection on the raindrops

    Looking forward to your feedback

    Enjoy!

    As always, your Rainbow is also beautiful.
    Feedback? If I would have your MIDI file, I would only reduce the piano volume, (put more dynamics) into the piano. While it is, as I said, simply beautiful, i think a better mix between the strings and the piano would make this piece even more beautiful. It is so nice that it deserves some more work, just mixing better, not changing anything else.

    Terrific poem; great music.

    Hope we shall soon be able to hear it from an actual vocal ensemble.
