    Hello fellow members,
    Thank you for welcoming me to your community as a new member. I have been actively interested in music for most of my life
    and have had experience as:- a choir member (tenor.....and sometimes a
    bass); a church organist; a practice pianist for a musical society (I'll never
    forget Finian's Rainbow, great musical; great music!). On more than a
    few occasions I was the orchestra for Christmas concerts/pantomimes using
    my Intercontinental electronic organ. I was also the organist in a trio. We
    performed in a pub, and my chief duty was to accompany singers for the
    night. This was hard work. A good ear was vital, and an expert working
    knowledge of the 24 major and minor keys.
    I am still a church organist. I accompany the choir;
    practice with them every Thursday evening; play on Sundays, before and
    after the service. I play a different piece each Sunday. This week its Gounod's Marche Romaine; last week a Bach Fugue; two weeks ago it was
    BWV 904;and so it goes on and on.............
    Up to now I have never played a composition of my own. Maybe
    as a member of this community I will obtain the inspiration to compose
    and launch my music onto an unsuspecting public..............

    Hello Master ThomasTallis1508,

    Welcome aboard - Please do make yourself feel right at home and stay for a spell.

    I like your screen name very much because of my ever-abiding interest in the choral music of Tallis, especially his *Spem In Alium*.

    *Protagoras: "Truth is subjective. What is true for you, and what is true for me, is true for me. Your opinion is true by virtue of its being your opinion."

    *Socrates: "My opinion is: Truth is absolute, not opinion, and that you are in absolute error. Since this is my opinion, then according to your philosophy you must grant that it is true."

    It annoys me to see places selling music from ages ago, so here's a link for the scores (including the 8 choir books (Soprano Alto Tenor Baritone Bass)) in full score (see references)
