Share the Pride and the Glory/Mention Choir and Director
Date: February 6, 2012
I have been listening to at least part of every recording uploaded to the library and I am humbled. Thank-you all for allowing me to be a part of your immense skill and glorious artistic output. I mentioned in the planning group for the real marketplace that I felt a credential system would be of use to conductors. I still believe so. Letting people know who else performed your works is a valuable bit of information.
If you have room in your More info sections, I believe it would be an asset for you to list the Choir and director that made your recordings. Ask permission first. My church choir was upset at me when I mentioned I wanted to post a YouTube video of them singing. I have a feeling that may be the attitude of some conductors that work at the level many of you are at. Their careers depend on their image.
You probably still have editor privelages, so you can go directly to the voicing page and enter. Please do not try to adjust any other formating issues or tags yourself, it could easiy upset the delicate text anchors we have in place. As always those less comfortable with the process can get them to me and I will put them up as time permits. Send me title, voicing, and the info so I don't have to hunt through all 50 entries. LOL. There are 50 entries. A link to the choir's ChoralNet profile or website would be another good idea in the More links section.
Thanks to Hildigunner for the fine recordings that made me think of this. You are my favorite Icelandic composer, and not just because I don't know any other Icelandic composers. Perhaps you can get your colleagues to join us as well?
There is a hole in the output of our collective uploads. I would really like to see more sacred pieces that could be performed by an average church choir. If some of you compose for my level of choir I would sure appreciate seeing your work. I believe others would as well.
