    I have just recently discovered how much I like classical music - well about 8 months ago now.

    I'm no expert on it or anything, but I really enjoy listening to it - although sometimes it makes me cry :-(

    Anyone heard - Nimrod - Enigma Variations? First time I heard it was on a film, but it doesn't half bring a tear to my eye.

    I mainly listen to Mozart, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Chopin, Bach and Tchaikovsky.

    Anyway just thought I'd add my little bit!

    Oh and Mendelssohn's Wedding March - sends a funny feeling through me - but I think that's just cos I'm excited to get married LOL!

    wowwww I wish I could do that!
    I've always sung soprano in choir but I'm quite a deep soprano - I can get down to the Bb below middle C but the extent of my range is the B sharp below top C so I couldn't sing anything like that.
    I can still sing quite a few cool things though

    there's a challenge and a half!
    for the choir bit you will need 2-10 staves:
    a) soprano/alto (treble clef) and tenor/bass (bass clef) (2)
    b) soprano/alto (treble clef), tenor/bass (bass clef) and soloist (3)
    c) soprano, mezzo, alto (all treble clef) (3)
    d) soprano, mezzo, alto, soloist (all treble clef) (4)
    e) soprano (treble clef), mezzo (treble clef), alto (treble clef), 2nd alto (treble clef), tenor (tenor clef), tenor 2 (tenor clef), bass (bass clef), bass 2 (bass clef), soloist 1 (treble clef), soloist 2 (bass/tenor clef) (10)

    make sure you choose a key that's easy to work with (like F Major). I can't really help with the orchestra-writing bit but I hope the choir-writing bit helps.

    Just make sure your know the ranges of each voice and don't put things too high or low. Or state a really high note for the altos to be sung ppppp !
