Description
Once again my frailties have gained me some studio time... I've been down all week with a respritory infection, and I was supposed to sing for Thors project, but I couldn't croak out a note... so I worked on something that I did previously... I wasn't going to post this until closer to Christmas, but when I'm healthy again I'll have to hit the ground runnin'... I'm not sure I'll have time

The environment for this song is a huge cathedral... in the dark ages... For theatre, I picture slavery and forced labor in the darkest places... hopless and forsaken...

human history is replete with examples of
the bondage we live under... and while we here all fall down on all sides of every arguement... one thing I'm sure we all agree on... our longing for some kind of freedom that transends the relentless gravity that has pulled on us from the dawn of time... this is what the song represents for me

A heart felt Merry Christmas to you

Lyrics
OH COME OH COME EMMANUEL,
AND RANSOM CAPTIVE ISRAEL
WHO MORNS IN LONELY EXILE HERE.
UNTIL THE SON OF GOD APPEARS
REJOICE REJOICE EMMANUEL
WILL COME TO YOU OH ISRAEL

OH COME THOU WISDOM FROM ON HIGH
& ORDER ALL THINGS FAR & NIGH
TO US THE PATH OF KNOWLEDGE SHOW.
& CAUSE US IN HER WAYS TO GO
REJOICE REJOICE EMMANUEL
WILL COME TO YOU OH ISRAEL

OH COME DESIRE OF NATIONS BIND
ALL PEOPLE IN ONE HEART AND MIND
BID ENVEY STRIFE AND QUARREL CEASE,
AND FILL THE WHOLE WORLD
WITH HEAVENS PEACE
REJOICE REJOICE EMMANUEL
WILL COME TO YOU OH ISRAEL
REJOICE REJOICE EMANUEL
WILL COME TO YOU OH ISRAEL
WILL COME TO YOU OH ISRAEL
WILL COME TO YOU OH ISRAEL
WILL COME TO YOU OH ISRAEL

stunning
the production on this is sooo good. so rich in texture and your vocal work is remarkable. Hands down my favorite xmass song ever. Can't wait for the dl button to be working.

Scott you are a producer extraordinaire. LOVED the synth work. Great pads, you really created a cool ambience, with minimal footprint. simply awesome

glorious
The build of this song is so thought through and well done. The pumping bass and the perc/drums gives an image of dramatic surroundings. A storytelling with powerful artistic effects.

And what a fabulous singer you are. The best vocals at macjams as I see it:) Fantastic hamonies. You show such professional music making skills.

I'm stunned, and breathless after this one... Fantabulous!

yes... great production, great instrumentation and vocals. But, Scott, you through your song get into the heart of man... his longings for something more, something better... something, it seems, all can relate to. Taking a familar hymn and making it something new and powerful...

If you would, send me a copy... dadai_music@yahoo.com

Hey J A C K
This song has always seemed very significant to me... Our story across the timeline is truely epic, and this song captures some of that drama... If you ever get a chance listen to Chris Rice "Welcome to our World" I think you'll love it

David Crosby's there from the first sung note - not a bad place to start! Absolutely astounding performance and production - I'm not usually one to be lost for words, but this goes direct to my Xmas CD once I can download it.

Cameron said 4583 days ago (December 9th, 2006)
appropriate for the season
The richness and complexity of your vocals and instrumental accompaniment is truly impressive on this tune.

You create a "momentous" atmosphere with the rather heavy, sombre orchestration -- as though we'd better wake up and pay attention to the message!

Playing through my MacBook and Soundsticks II speakers, the low end of this recording was very full, bordering on obliterating the higher end, which I would have liked to hear just a bit more of.

Also, the thick texture throughout this piece could be varied, thinned in spots for additional interest, but perhaps you were going for more of a sustained intensity -- in which case you succeeded admirably!

This is a very well-put together, nicely produced holiday tune, which was NOT released too early. Thanks for sharing.

Scott Carmichael said 4581 days ago (December 10th, 2006)
thank you Cameron
I love the Idea of audimating the EQ on this... one of my early mixes i addressed the saturated bottom end by EQing out some of the lows... and it lost the warmth..and the big drum hits became hollow... I could select a few of the muddiest instruments and leave the rest alone... but I like the idea of varrieing the bottom through the song....

Hey maybe I could get some real French horns on this... my close friend Jesse Corti was in the Les Mis cast here on broadway... still a fav

Alannah said 4582 days ago (December 9th, 2006)
When I noticed this song had the
highest rating this week I felt compelled to give it a listen .. when I opened the page and realized it was a Scott Carmichael I said to myself "well that explains that then" .... you continue to amaze me with your vocal abilities and I will never figure out how you manage to mix numerous layers of vocals in so well and it always comes out sounding clean and clear. By the time I manage to get more than 2 in one of my songs it just ends up sounding like what the orchestra sounds like when they are warming up .... you are truly a master at your craft!

just stunning. I have always loved this song. The epitome of the coming of hope. You've captured the energy and the longing. You've established a global sound to do it, which is appropriate. The Peter Gabriels and Paul Simon's of the world ought to take notice.

*one small thing---you've got to get yourself a personal symphony! Your arrangement deserves so much more than synth-brass.

encouraging comments indeed... I love this song too... I have several versions all very different... but this one gets to the heart of the song as I see it... I have a sampeler in Logic that I really don't know how to use yet... but truely, I struggled with the synth sounds... I EQed for hours... there is only so much you can do.. i would love to take your advice or get real players

Your treatment of this song is very original. I love the way it starts out dark and almost industrial. That makes the resolution of "rejoice", even more satisfying. The sound is huge and beautiful. All in all its an arresting piece of music. Regards

"Industrial" yes
That's the word I was looking for... I had invisioned the mines of Moria... Underground in Isenguard... forced slave labor in Mordor.. that kind of thing... and I wanted to contrast this against the release of "rejoice".. I was hoping it would be heard this way

And I cannot believe you hang out here with us earthly amateurs. Y'know, I'm not religious in the slightest, but a person's gotta be without a pulse if he/she cannot feel the spiritual magnificence of this. You got me. Thank you for your music, Scott. Feel better soon, (darnit!), and have a WONDERFUL holiday!

Scott Carmichael said 4580 days ago (December 11th, 2006)
Count me in
with the earthly amateurs... truth is my ears were so tired in the last 5 years or so... I never listened to anything... I wanted something new... Mj has me listening again, and it's proactive not passive, because these are peers and friends... there aren't enough people close by to form any kind of writers quild... but all over the earth there are plenty of us.. and all's we have to do is log on... MJ has me working past my prime and for that I'm grateful...

I read your comment before I went to work, and thought alot about it during the day... I know what I would want to say at the risk of scaring someone away...

... Jesus wasn't much for religion either.. dealing with the religious is the only time you see him angry... and we are all spirtual... body, mind and spirit... I'm fat because I feed my body... some people here are very smart because they feed their minds... in this culture the spirit gets neglected... we starve the spirit... I think that's one reason music has the power over us that it has... we are starved... anyway my point is that as much as we are physical, and intellect, we are spiritual...

from a former sceptic, peace; Scott

FEEL said 4579 days ago (December 13th, 2006)
Vastly expanding
your feel to this song. I like the approach. Your interpretation to this song never had crossed my mind. A plea for freedom and if we come to terms with our higher power, He has offered us salvation. The cathedrals sound relative to the darkest places had me depicting the fortunate and unfortunate, how they pass through time in parallel. It sounded as though the strongest voices were coming from the weak and desperate. Very powerful and thanks for sharing.

Scott,
Not much to add to all the other accolades, but to say that I am happy to have heard your wonderful rendition of this classic. You've created a powerful sound wave that is compelling and deeply spiritual, easily one of the very best renditions of this song I have ever heard -- and quite unexpected. I will be taking a look at more of your compositions. You are indeed a very skilled musician.
Peace.

Great Scott!
Scott, if you keep churning up songs like this, Macjams will have to invent a new category to separate guys like you, so the rest of us won't sound so bad. From the first beating of the drum and the first vocal harmonies, it was a no-brainer decision to download it, and I did in all of my computers in my network :D. I think I will give a copy of this song to some of my close friends and family, too... is that ok? It's like stealing a gem and not going to jail for it. I don't have to go into details what i admired about this song. Can I just say.. everything? Like most everyone else, I think I delightfully swallowed this song hook, line and sinker.

Excellent
Very, very Gabriel-ish. Especially that beginning. My mind went straight to "Mercy Street" during that intro. Then the vocals really began I was back to Emanuel.
This just sounds excellent on almost every level!

There were 2 things I heard in this that stuck out out of that smooth piece of music; The crash cymbals and the brass.
The cymbals are a very minor nit - one or two of the sounds you used I thought sounded a bit too small/cheap compared to the grandeur of the synth background.
The brass, however, was a more noticable nit. But I might not be the best person to judge the synth brass, since I've had it in for them for quite some time now. It's a little pet peeve of mine.
But then again, this is just me :)

All in all, though, this truly is a great piece. And as I said before: Very Gabriel-ish.

Happy holidays!

Hi Einarus
and thanx much... as for the cymbals I can't hear them... i always know that if I can hear them, they are too loud, so I'm usually guessing in that frequency... and I'm not so bothered by the synth stuff because I'm thinking in terms of keyboard sounds and not real orchestras... although that would be so cool if I had the resourses to do this with real players... the keyboard horn sounds are remenicent of FLOYD stuff... that's OK with me

thanx for the listen my good man

Scott - this is so good, that on first listening it feels familiar, it's got such a classic feel to it. Production, performance, lyrics - wonderful. I'm completely stunned by how good this is. 10's across the board doesn't seem enough somehow.

Wow.

Hey Steve
I have performed this live with several singers and software running the instruments... It was one of my fav's to perform, because of audience reaction... performing live is so much work though, I prefer working in the software and placing it here...

I was impressed with your stuff.. I'll be back around

thanx; Scott

I agree
that a song such of this does not need to be put aside and brought out for only one season. What you wrote in the description and how you made this into something special moved me. Such an impact, Such a profound gift: What you are singing about and you, yourself. Thanks.
