Provide consultation and guidance on the correct way to have music transcribed.
We are considering a project of transcribing the church hymns and cultural folk songs of the Amish people. Many of the songs originate in 1300's-1400's, and are sung very slowly, with a lot of nuance on each syllable. (The song lyrics are in German)
We need someone to direct us how this music should be transcribed properly, and possibly to lead the project of transcribing approximately 100 songs.
There is a lot of subtle detail in the music, this job will require a keen ear, and a thorough understanding of vocal music, and music writing.
Our goal is to understand the scope of this project, and the possible costs to get the transcription done well.
When you are successful at helping us with this job, you could be a part of capturing a valuable piece of history and sharing it with world.
Can you describe similar music that you are familiar with?
