    Default Virginal Sonata, played on piano

    Intended for performance on my virginal, which is in need of a few repairs.

    I like the harmony more on this one. Do you write it out for others to perform or as a document, or just improvise for friends, etc.?

    I may eventually write my favorite pieces I've produced over the last four years out. For now I am just exploring.

    There are some wonderfully crazy harmonies on this. Good job! It’s good to be virginal.

    This is quite nice work, but it's not a sonata. A sonata is a multi movement work, generally of an A B A form (though not always, sometimes more themes are introduced and explored) but there should always be an exposition, a development and a recapitulation. Your piece doesn't adhere to this quite strict form of composition so perhaps you should call it something else.
