Description
Doing all these traditional Christmas songs got me in the mood to write my own. Plus I wanted to do something with my choir, I haven't used them all that much lately. Thinking up a title was difficult - mainly because there are so many Christmas bell-type songs out there, most of the titles have already been thought of! But I couldn;t think of any called 'sing out, sweet bells', so there you go.

The church-style bells at the beginning are a little bit of improv from me, recorded live (using the computer keyboard as a midi keyboard which is very difficult!) Hope you enjoy it, anyway.

After listening to this again, I've decided this might be a work in progress. I'm not happy with the ending - I feel like I need to build that into something, bring in some deep strings, more bells and really work it.

Hi......
I'm not too sure about the balance of the sounds in the piece and, as you say, the ending seems to need more work.

I enjoyed what you have done so far. I will look forward to added strings and any other instrumentation that you care to add in your next version.

Take care.

cool
like the melodies in this piece, can't believe that you typed this out on your qwerty keys. very holiday sounding and very nice. now, how about a re-mix with all moog sounds (like one of those early 70's moog xmas records). great work.
