    Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming (Christmas)

    Here is my arrangement for the GPO holiday CD. Hope you like! Something a little different -- and it's 100% GPO.

    Jim,

    The link doesn't seem to want to work in your Yahoo folder. I'll check back later.

    Please do. Yahoo seems to be temporarily down.

    I really like the realistic sounds that you have acheived in this piece. Thanks for sharing it.

    Slight pickiness here (and NOT meaning to offend!) - if the legato capability could be employed on the opening oboe/english horn, then it would sound more realistic. I LOVE the arrangement itself though. VERY nice. I think getting the legato sound would simply cap the tune and make it perfect!

    The use of percussion was done well and really keeps the song going. The flute was nice too, very airy and cool!

    Very nicely done! It will go extremely well on the GPO Christmas CD (now if I could only get my pieces done!).

    Thanks for the critique! I had a lot of fun with this -- forced me into a "Garritan-only" box. You know, I played with a more legato attack on the notes of the oboe, but I wasn't entirely happy with the way the notes schmeared together, just sounded too artificial. Looking forward to hearing your tunes-

    Jim,

    It is indeed working now. I will give it a listen and comment later on. Cool?

    Hi Mista,

    This was very nice indeed although I agree with Mr Selby about the flute. If you didn't like the legato playing then just try moving the notes closer together in the piano editor....or maybe even try overlapping them slightly. Very nice arrangement.

    Your recording seems to be overloading....especially at the beginning.
