Wow, great!! The opening sounds very real. I love the slide in the strings. I have a tough time getting those slides to sound right. The arrangement is outstanding. A couple of the slow string trills (:27) sound a bit synthy but overall it sounds very natural. It's a goodern!!
Thanks guys. Nice tip on the bells and those synthy sounding trills with the slow strings. Maybe I put to much high end on the eq. The slides I don't know how DPDAN accomplishes it. All I know is I tried a couple of times with portatomato and it came out messy. DPDAN's orchestration is the dominant one with mine being slight and all flute.
Glad you like it. This is a tuff one this year with no real good sheet music to count on.
Sal 'n Deepy, The others are correct....this is beautifully arranged and painstakingly put together....just lovely. I normally prefer vocal arrangements of vocal pieces but because the arrangement is so skilfull here with such attention to detail in the MIDI there is plenty for the ear to listen out for. It does sound very realistic.
PS Even by my standards, this piece is probably fairly to close to my sweetness index limit!
