Music

studioEver since I'm five years old I've been involved with music. I started singing in primary school and I still am singing and hope to do so for a long time. As off my thirteenth I play classical guitar and since the 90's of last century I play guitar in a flute and guitar duo with my wife. So the things I learned and gathered is what I want to share with you on these pages. I hope you will enjoy music as much as I do. I published most of my arrangements on an excellent website called "Free-Scores"  A wonderfull site that contains many free sheetmusic arrangements including mine. You can select individual pieces easily by making use of the menu structure of this site.
 
I'm singing in Church Choirs since 1992. I made only a few arrangements for a choir, I hope you can enjoy it. Please feel free to contact me when you have any questions.

Fernando Sor Op.31.23 -Mouvement de priere religieuse - Mi majeure - Ave Maria
Studying this famous guitar etude of Sor, I always heard the words of the 'Hail Mary' in my head. Eventually I tried writing it down for SATB choir and it seems to fit remarkebly well. Nowadays it one of the favorates in the choirs that I sing in and it has been downloaded 3800+ times from the internet.
Magnificat - zegen van Maria
An old Dutch song that I arranged for SATB choir.
Bach-Gounod - Ave Maria (SATB) full score
Bach-Gounod - Ave Maria koorpartituur
In this SATB arrangement I split the melody part between soprano and alto to make the song more suitable for most choirs.
I'm playing Classical Guitar since 1963. My arrangements for classical guitar are mainly based on SATB choral music. It was an attempt to simplify the harmonies to the basics so the music becomes playable on an classical or acoustic guitar by an average level guitarist like me. Please feel free to contact me when you have any questions.

I'm playing in a Flute and Guitar duo with my wife since 1993. Over a period of 20 years I made 40 arrangements for flute and guitar that are playable on a classical or acoustic guitar by an average level guitarist like me and an advanced flutist. Most arrangements contain separate flute parts and 'play along' midi file that can also be downloaded, so flutists without a guitarist partner can also enjoy this music. The arrangements below are in alfabetical order of the composers last name. Please feel free to contact me when you have any questions.
