 Genre: Renaissance

Description
Richard Schletty (rschletty) writes: A 3-part instrumental madrigal called "Silver Swan" was written in MIDI notation by Feter. Richard imported the MIDI file into Finale 2008 and applied the words of Sir Thomas Wyatt to Feter's notes. Our vocal version of the song is called "What Should I Say?"

Feter's original instrumental soundtrack (Silver Swan) is here:
http://www.schletty.com/music/The_Silver_Swan.mp3

Richard's score can be viewed here:
http://www.schletty.com/music/SilverSwan_WhatShouldISay-r6.pdf

In this posted version, Andreas Hermann (Dirigent) does a very fine rendition of our madrigal, singing all three voice parts. We thank him so much for helping us to realizing our vision.

Title: "What Should I Say?"
Text: "That Faith Is Dead, and True Love Disregarded" by Sir Thomas Wyatt, 1503-1542
Tune: The Silver Swan by Ghassan Mohammed (Feter)
Arrangement: Richard C. Schletty (RSchletty)
Vocals: Andreas Hermann (Dirigent)

Feter:
Its a dream come true ..and there s no word can
fill my thankfullness to Andreass and Richard
they learnt me a lesson in life beside there kindness
if I ever rememebr a thing ..I ll remember how those
two gave willingly for nothing but the honest
will to be good to themselves first and the world
second and all ... a true greeting with respect
to both of them ..may God bless you all !!

thank you from the deepest of my heart !

Lyrics
That Faith Is Dead, and True Love Disregarded

WHAT should I say?
—Since Faith is dead,
And Truth away
From you is fled?
Should I be led
With doubleness?
Nay! nay! mistress.

I promised you,
And you promised me,
To be as true
As I would be.
But since I see
Your double heart,
Farewell my part!

Thought for to take
'Tis not my mind;
But to forsake
One so unkind;
And as I find
So will I trust.
Farewell, unjust!

Can ye say nay
But that you said
That I alway
Should be obeyed?
And—thus betrayed
Or that I wist!
Farewell, unkist!

Sir Thomas Wyatt, 1503–1542

Mistake in transcribing lyrics
Oh my. I just noticed that I made a mistake in transcribing verse two of the Wyatt poem for the madrigal. I missed the third line: "To be as true."

I promised you,
And you promised me,
To be as true
As I would be.
But since I see
Your double heart,
Farewell my part!

Well, no one has noticed but it makes my arrangement far less than perfect. I blame the Finale software. It is very difficult to use the Lyrics tool in Finale. I think Sibelius might be a better program. André van Haren uses Sibelius for his scoring.

Sorry for realizing my mistake too late!

A matter of the art
The only thing worse than an incomplete English sentence is an incomplete Old English sentence. LOL.

It matters to Sir Thomas Wyatt fans. I went back into the Finale 2008 score last night and started fixing it.

Fixed
I fixed the score. I inserted the missing line from Wyatt's poem! I also tweaked other parts. I now have the Finale 2009 notation program.

woofer3 said 3339 days ago (July 30th, 2008)
this I think is
one of the most authentic things in this genre that I have heard on MacJams up to now, - no definately the most authentic. This is real renaisance. I'm very impressed. Some think a simple song cycle is enough but not so in my book. Everything is right about this.

Good work all of you.

Bye the way Feter I've been meaning to mention this before but everytime I try to open your page it takes minutes. I get the same problem with Dee1962 as well and in fact have almost given up in her case. I was wondering if it's a general thing or if the problem is my end. Just thought I'd bring it up. I don't get problems with other artists as far as I know.

A possible explanation...
I think "Google ad syndication" has something to do with the extremely long delay. Check out the Status Bar message in the lower left of the browser window as Feter's page is loading. I think Admin should turn off Google ads for a few days to see if this improves loading. I think the textual content of Feter's long page is being uploaded to Google so it can analyze it and display an ad best related to the content of the page.

I really enjoyed this very much!
It sounds so authentic Renaissance European.
I love the old English poetry and the melody together.
I'll admit that I heard "Silver Swan" and thought it was really good.
But now that it has beautiful lyrics to accompany the beautiful melody
IT IS GREAT!
Great job to all 3 of you on the gem.

Unexpected excellence
One just never knows what you will come across when listening to Macjammers music ... as this totally unexpected auditory experience proves. Not only is the song a delight to hear ... but I am also intrigued by the backstory of how three gents living in different parts of the globe somehow conspired to produce such a gem.
