Jonathan DoveI am writing about Jonathan Dove. Jonathan was born on July 18, 1959 in London,England. He studied music at the University of Cambridge, under Robin Holloway, and afterwards worked as a freelance arranger and accompanist until 1987, when he was employed by Glyndebourne Opera.
His main job is Film Score Composer so yes composing is his main job. He has done 16 chamber pieces, 49 choral, 15 vocal, 10 tv, 28 stage works, and 23 orchestra. One of the three pieces i picked to write about is Te Deum.
I picked this because the name of it sounded like it was gonna be in a different language .That is was what i thought it was gonna be about and it made me think about church choir and worship and people just being happy and finding god in their life. It was made for STAB and the instruments in it was the organ. The overall tone of this was kinda interesting and hard to tell the tone but it seems in a way happy but also kinda slow and sad. http://www.jonathandove.
com/works/choral/te-deum/ The second piece I picked is Antiphon and I picked this because i thought it sounded like a really cool name and i felt like it had a lot of emotion behind it . What made this stand out is that . This makes me think about like someone falling in love.
It was meant for SSA and also SATB. Again this one does not have any instruments in it. It has a good pace to it and they sing it in english. https://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/my-love-is-mine-sheet-music/5423377 The last one is The End and i picked this because i felt like it was a sad. What made this sand out is the instruments and it is really sad sounding or creepy.
it makes me think about someone in danger or scary movie. Viola, Cello,Double Bass. Double Bass, Harp. The harp, another stringed instrument, is nothing like the rest of the string family ,Flute, Piccolo, Oboe. are the instruments that play. Barton and low guys parts sing it . they sing in english.

I thought this guy was actually really interesting and writes good musicwww.jonathandove.com/://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/my-love-is-mine-sheet-music/5423377
