You may be pleased to know that these songs aren't rendered sloppily by amateur vocalists; they have synthesized voices singing the lyrics! This is possible because I bought software called VocalWriter.
Because these renditions are 100% computer-generated, printing the sheet music for them is relatively easy. Price for sheet music: you have to send me a tape of your performance! :-) Send me some e-mail about it; I'm Hugh at (what else?) emersonguys.com.
|The first album (Hugh Emerson: Depressed)||Songs written from the junior high years up to the Kirksville years, 1972-1983. The album title is somewhat deceptive; the album isn't about being depressed. Contains my single biggest hit, "U.B."|
|The second album (Hugh Emerson: Born Again)||Songs inspired by events from the years 1983-1995. Again, the album title is somewhat deceptive; not all the songs are spiritual in nature. The other two songs I contributed to the "composers in Columbia" contest, "Limbo" and "Shade of Magenta" are on this album.|
|The third album (Requiem / Crime and Punishment)||Contains the two longest works to date: the Requiem in F (in Latin), possibly the happiest mass for the dead ever written, and the music from "Crime and Punishment: the musical".|
|The fourth album (A Counterpoint Christmas)||There's kind of a game involved with most of these arrangements: this is a collection of familiar songs with other melodies going on at the same time. The point of the game is to guess what the familiar melody is going to be before it happens. In some cases, the countermelody is original, and in some cases, the countermelody is a familiar tune as well.|
|The fifth album (Andy and his Magic Webcam)||Songs written since 1995. Not many ready yet.|
