Thursday 19th January 2006 - Windy Afternoon - by Jim Taylor. Copyright © 2006 James K Taylor, all rights reserved. I never quite understood the difference between a two or four part invention (Bach style) and a fugue (must have slept through that 8:00 AM music theory class many moons ago). Well anyway, I'll let you be the judge. What is quite interesting is that we did not obtain a set of music rules from Bach. The rules and the way we still write most of our music were derived from the study of his compositions. (13 k, 79 sec)

(From 19 November 1997 until 18 November 2006 we featured one new original MIDI file each day - there are well over 3000 of these, and we'll feature some different ones each day. These are all smallish MIDI files, and suitable for downloading quickly via dial-up connections.)


Hello! (posted by Daniel Rowe, 24 Nov 2017, 23:16)

It's been three months since I've posted anything, but I see the Diary is still here, with a few new tunes. I know Thanksgiving is an "American" holiday, but I'd like to take this occasion to thank Keith for giving us this platform to express ourselves.
