The songs I’m singing

Been a while.  But in my absence, I have been productive.  No, no, hear me out!  This post contains some of what I’ve been working on this year, musically.  I just hope the images work.

I’ve called the piece ‘Threnody’, which, language fans, is a real word.  Dictionary.com defines it as “a poem or song of mourning or lamentation”, and it’s the first in a planned set of similar works.  I first encountered the word ‘threnody’ as a girl’s name in a book when I was just a teenager, and it’s stuck with me since then.

The piece itself was written in response to a recorder player asking people on a forum to write some music for him, and I accepted the challenge.  This piece was actually the second thing I wrote, and, while it’s not perfect, and some of the chords may sound wrong, it’s what I meant.
