Beautiful, Tom
You've taken a timeless classic and made it special again. Great guitar playing, and the strings are perfect, too. Downloaded for this year's Christmas CD. :-)

Wonderfully played, and well-planned. Your picking shows evidence of many hours (and years) of playing and preparation.

A timeless piece for the Advent of our King, given a very pleasant refreshing here.

Like the folk feel of this, nice flow of the backround guitar too.
Nice mix, good texture of the acoustic guitars.
Nice pick of a tune !

Lovely rendition -
of a very familiar classic. the only nit is that the lead guitar could be forward in the mix just a bit more. Beautiful restrained ornamentation that enhances the melody rather than overpowering.

And .. if you excuse .. don't know if I'm gonna dare click the 'Post Comment' button after writing this one .. it strikes me that you play this very close to .. hmm .. "Curry-style" .. I mean, much of the phrasing, many of the syncopes and twists, are very close to how I would have done it.
I love it!

love it
though my genre of choice to create (mainly because it is easiest to get supplies for) is electronic, but i love the soothing sounds of classical guitar, piano and orchestral instruments. great job. the true classics never get old. blessings brother.

One of the very best music compositions in the history of music and now you uploaded it with more greatly playing. I'm in love with this so much (dropped you a message before!!) ... I'm amazed. Just a MasterGem!

Thanks a lot for sharing and KUDOS for the picking! :D
