Valentin Dubovskoy, vocal

Such method used for writing sonnets:
after English text hyphenation, gematria for each syllable was calculated .
Gematria is an amount of numerical values of all letter of syllable, where A corresponds 1, B 2, etc. Z 26.

This number is displayed on musical 12-tones
chromatic scale. The remainder of number divided by 12 calculated. 
This remainder is number o note in the musical scale, where 1 correspods C, 2 C#, etc. 11 B, 0 H.

Now we have a sequenc
e of sound, turning it into music.

I showed all calculatings for each syllable in text of each sonnet. Format is Gematria(Remainder)Note.
