Description
Smokey's lovely tune, my version. Actually, this must be about the twentieth version I've done! The last one was a monumental church organ effort, but someone beat me to it! So this is just a mix I like. It's a wonderful melody and I've really enjoyed playing around with it. I hope I haven't spoiled it. Any crits or suggestions gratefully received, of course.

Thanks for listening! :)

elegant synthness
I like it... Smokey's tune is one of those timeless beauties (already!), and you did a great job choosing little synth sparkles here and there to augment the main structure, without going overboard... very nice to listen to!

Very nice and festive
Lovely gentle music you have made hear. I know that you like bell sounds, so I think its fitting that you made this rather then the organ. Short but sweet track Dave, very nice. Well done.

smooth bells
the opening bells really made me think of handbells as in your song pic. if you've never heard a bell choir performance, seek one out.

this is great. the synth sounds blend in nicely.

thanks
