Description
My take on the traditional Christmas carol "O, Holy Night". It's interesting in 4... Real drums, bass, classical guitar melody. Roland RD-500 and Korg Triton 61 keyboard sounds. I'm a fan of the cello line...Recorded and mixed in Adobe Audition. Merry Christmas!!!

O, Holy Night
First of all I have to say I have never heard anything like this before. You truly are a master of this genre - why aren't you making a living at this? Fabulous rendition - I really enjoyed it - thanks!

Thank you so much!
You're too kind. If only there were sufficient money and a good health insurance plan for this genre. Not so much, though. I have a regular job that I like a lot and funds these experiments to their logical conclusions.. But I really appreciate the kindness, especially from ears of your caliber!

Beautiful
The instruments are a delight to listen to - soft tones with a fullness that comes partly from the instruments themselves and also from the variety of the ones you use. That bass line is special, the synth very gentle. I love the little kick along around 2:57, too. Thanks for the download!

Thanks, Philip!
Well-spotted, by the way, I purposefully went after some incongruous sound choices to see how they'd meld, and I got lucky! I'm fortunate to have some really mellow and lush string patches, it acts like good fluffy frosting... :)

O'Holy Night
Phil, this is terrific; so rich all the way around... the bass playing is ridiculously sweet. I really like the string choices, and the modulation is perfect. This is pro all the way! Talented cat you are....

I wish this place had a "like" button!
Thanks very much man... I'm happy you appreciate the bass playing... I don't have a lot of chops, but I think I make good choices for the most part... Rich lush harmonizations are my thing, I'm more of an arranger that a writer, ya know?

I don't get here as much as I'd like, things have gotten a lot busier. I miss you guys a lot, I wanted to make the time during Christmas because I'm hoping to hear a lot of great holiday tunes, and so far I haven't been disappointed... :)

I helped...
One of my friends kids that is a very promising artist. His old keyboard won't do for the musical ideas in his head. The Triton is a better option :)

O, Holy Night
Breezy arrangement of a classic song. Complementary instrument choices, tasty choices in the arrangement. I'll be playing this one for my family @Xmas.

I like the 4/4 time
It provides the space and time to get some of those little counter melodies in there with room to breathe. Different enough to be fresh, yet you never cross the line into questionable taste. DL to our living room computer.

a fresh listen
I sing this every year with a team of singers... and it always seems to impact those who hear it... I'm loving the fresh listen... hearing it new again... I love how you handled the key change... and even though I'm listening to christmas music in August, while I can't get far enough away from it in December... I had to leave a comment and a nod... you are deft in several musical disciplines...
