Three More Chorales

Here are three more Bach Chorales from the book “101 Bach Chorales.” The rest of them can be found here:

Number 67:

Number 68:

Number 69:

Here are two songs you are sure to remember. They were both written by Edvard Grieg, and were posted here last year around this time (before I knew how to do sound effects!)

Say Hello To My Little Friend

Bach is Back

And he brought two more of his chorales with him. Do you notice how similar they sound? Of course you don’t! You haven’t listened to them yet. But when you do, you will notice that they each start in the same key: F Minor.

Here are two versions of Chorale Number 75:

Piano
Organ/Guitar

And two versions of Chorale Number 78:

Piano
Organ

Name That Tune

Here are three more songs, in no particular order. One of them is by Johann Sebastian Bach, and the other two are by Orlando Di Lasso. Can you tell which one is which?

Tres Mas Otra Vez

This isn’t done yet, but I am (at least for today). It is another song by Orlando Di Lasso, titled “Bonjour et puis quelles nouvelles.” That translates to “Hello and then what news!” (I added the exclamation point for effect.)

And here are two more Bach Chorales:

Number 60
Number 61

Fresh off The Press

Here are more of those chorales by Johann Sebastian Bach. We are a little over half way through the songbook “101 Chorales by Johann Sebastian Bach.”

I hope you enjoy listening to these songs as much as I like making them.

And who knows, maybe one day I will be a star. I’m off to a good start. The way I have been eating lately I am getting to be as big as a planet.

I have each starting key listed. Almost all of them modulate to a different key.

Number 59 – D Major
Number 57 – F Major
Number 58 – A Minor
Number 49 – G Major
Number 50 – G Major
Number 51 – D Minor
Number 53 – G Major

Bach is Back

These Bach Chorales are being downloaded at an ever-increasing rate. Listeners from all over the world are clamoring for more! Well, listeners, here are three more for you. And I have to tell you, I think number 56 is the best one yet.

I hope they bring as much happiness to you as they have brought to me. Because let’s face it, we could all really use a bit of that right now.

Number 56
Number 55
Number 54

Check out these paintings by David Hockney. He certainly knew how to use color.
Do you know why people sometimes wear complementary colors? For the compliments, of course.

No Title Needed

I wake each morning when it’s dark
Awakened by a dog’s loud bark
I brew some coffee and drink it down
And after a while I lose my frown

Here are some more songs to help you lose your frown, if you have one.

Number 47
Number 48
Number 52
My Summer Home

More Music

We are half way through the list of 101 Chorales. Here are numbers 42, 45, and 46.

The first two songs begin in the key of G Major. The last song begins in the key of C-Minor. Can you hear the difference? I knew you could!

Number 42
Number 45
Number 46
“THIS MUSIC IS THE CAT’S MEOW!”

Three More Just for You

These three songs bring us up to number forty-one in the countdown of 101 Bach Chorales, for those of you keeping score at home.

Number 39
Number 40
Number 41

And by the way, if you haven’t seen the show “Halo” on Paramount Plus, I highly recommend it. But be prepared to have your mind blown.

That’s a Wrap

Here are three more of those Bach Chorales everyone is talking about. Chorale Number 37 and 39 were written in 3/4 time, but the percussion is 4/4. It produces an interesting effect.

Do you ever experience writer’s block? If that happens to you, just remember to put one font in front of the other.

Number 36
Number 37
Number 38
Number 39
