What timing! I was just rewriting/rearranging a previous string choir piece of mine that I found a waaaaay older sketch of a couple of days ago, but now I’ve decided to adds some French and English horns :smile:

This will be a challenge since writing only for strings is a bit tougher than it sounds. Going to have to brush up on my 4 part harmony and counterpoint!

Hi Mike, just want to ask if the rule for this is a STRINGS ONLY piece, in any style, or is it ANY STYLE with any other instruments, as long as it has a full string section?

Yeah I thought about that after your first comment, but I honestly had in mind a full composition…as long as you focus on a full string arrangement within it overall. So yes, do feel free to include other instruments. :slight_smile:
