Kyrie audio file and PDF of score

Dear Wede,

Thank you for sharing your Kyrie Eleison and Halleluia songs. Good polyphony. I especially like that you attached a PDF of the sheet music for this Kyrie. Can you do that for the other songs?

What program do you use to create your MIDI recording? What program do you use to create your sheet music?

We might be able to help you get better recordings of your songs. Do you have a church choir that can sing this for you? Otherwise, I will try to find SATB voices to demo the song. 

I am open to collaborative work. I will also send your song links to my collaborators.

God bless you.

Re: Kyrie audio file and PDF of score

Dear Mr. Richard.
Thank you for the kind feedback. I am glad you are open to the suggestion of collaborating. I am not sure what I can contribute to your music projects however please feel free to let me know if you have any ideas that we can work on together!
I have attached the PDFs to all my songs on the website. There are four of them now. Yes, I try as much as I can to make sure I generate a PDF for all my music. 
I use Finale Notepad, a free software. With Finale Notepad, you can generate PDF files. To do this, you will need to install - in addition to Finale Notepad - a virtual PDF writer software e.g. "CutePDF". After working on your music in Finale Notepad, when you go to File > Print, rather than selecting a physical printer, you select the "CutePDF" software > then the location you want to store the file in, and on from there.
I have used ScoreCloud in the past too. It is much easier to use than Finale, I think, if you have a studio or space to sing/play in. It takes the notes you PLAY or SING and converts them instantly to sheet music. (Finale too takes music files and converts them to sheet music but I compose from scratch i.e. by picking note by note. I am a full-time PhD student so I have no studio and being physically in our a research office most of the time, I have no space to sing to my PC! I can just picture my research colleagues' faces should they hear singing coming from my corner of the room! Ha ha!). Please note that to use the free version of ScoreCloud, you will require continuous connection to the Internet. This is not necessary if you use the paid version.
I have sent some of my music to a choir I used to sing with back home in Nigeria but due to several reasons they have not yet worked on the songs. I am still pushing because they are an amazing group and their choir masters' compose -a lot! - and so they are open to the idea of new, fresh music.
I am also trying to push one of my 'Kyrie's with my local Church choir organist/leader here in the UK - although I have NOT gone as far as suggesting that she teaches it to the choir. I might be wrong but I get the feeling that the general tradition in our Church here is such that I don't think she would be 'open' to that idea. Again, I might be wrong.
If you can find voices to do a demo, that would be absolutely fantastic! Oh, that would be just awesome. Also, please feel free to share it with your collaborators and to re-record it. It is free music as long as the tune, words and composer's name stay the same (I'm sure you understand).
Thank you again for the kind feedback.
Hope to speak soon.
Many regards,
Wede

To God, Glory; to man, none.

Updated sheet music score

I'm glad I connected you with André van Haren who improved your engraving by adding hyphens to words and adding a simple organ accompaniment. Bravo! Hopefully, I can arrange to get a real voice recording of your Kyrie I.
