    Nice ! It could easily pass for early Haydn or one of the many composers bridging the gap between Bach and Mozart. Well played, too. A real harpsichord, or a digital ?

    Thank you very much. It's the harpsichord with added reverb from GPO (Garritan Personal Orchestra). I love the GPO harpsichord--it sounds . . . amazing, possibly because perfect dynamics doesn't matter!

    I'd just like to know if you'd change anything at all (or if there are any counterpoint, harmonic errors).

    No, sorry, I haven't really written much (I'm only fifteen). I do have a few other quick things, but I can't get that to upload right now.

    I found a couple of spots where the harmonics sound a bit clumsy/unusual. Whether that is 'right' or 'wrong' I could not say, not being an expert. Certainly not to be considered errors, I think. As a whole I found this pretty convincing, though the closing bar is IMO a bit trite.

    What would you replace it with?

    Dunno, I am not a composer... But let me know if you want to know which parts I meant.

    harmonic help

    Hi! congratulations for your composition!

    I have a considerable knowledge of classical harmony, so, if you want (and it is not too late), I would be pleased to examine the score so as to propose you some harmonic or formal improvements (in case they where any).

    Cheers!
