Wow, I never heard church music sound so good. This is a delightful garden of color and sound. The arrangement and orchestration is divine!
Charles Austin Miles (1868 - 1946) wrote "In the Garden" in 1913 and later became one of Mile's most popular hymns. Miles abandoned a career in pharmacy and went on to write some of the most popular gospel tunes.
Thanks for posting this David. And also thanks for the score as well. This truly is an inspiration to us all.
Very nicely done! And for Mark Lowry, no less -- how'd you end up working with him? He has a really nice voice (like him with the Gaither Vocal Band), I'm imagining him singing over this in my mind. Funny guy, too.

A mutual friend recommended me to him when he was recording his recent new Christmas album. (This is another GPO miracle story, by the way.)
They recorded live rhythm tracks and Mark's vocal in NashVegas. Emailed me rough mixes as MP3's, which I dropped into my Sonar/GPO template. I matched their tempi, orchestrated over the tracks, and ftp'd large WAV files back to them, which they dropped into their ProTools mixes.
That, friend, is the very first orchestration-by-email project I have ever done in my life.
Mark was so happy with the result, he's having me do an entire hymns album for him. It'll be all GPO!
This was nice. I agree with Mr. Garritan in that I have never heard church music sound as nice and warm as this. This was very pleasing to listen to this morning after going through a week like I have.
Very nice indeed.
