    Okay... No more AAARRGGHHH!!!

    Well, for those of you who listened to my original Jesus Loves Me by William M Bradbury (orchestrated by me), here's the final rendition of it.

    For those of you who don't know the story behind this, the congregation at my church wants me to do some solo work for them on the horn. So, I decided I'd orchestrate some stuff and play about once a quarter or so. This first one (Jesus Loves Me) is a test of sorts.

    I'm pleased you haven't given up the challenge, Foster!

    There are some interesting lines, good writing, and fine brass work in this.

    I have the sense, though, that your quite natural proclivities toward developing an idea are still overpowering your desire for simplicity... with the result that maybe there's a little too much going on too quickly. [I will duly note that I am often guilty of this myself... lol.]

    One of the constraints of smaller forms and shorter time-frames, alas, is that you get to explore less material (rather than just present the same amount of fundamental material more quickly).

    To my ear, at least, I think I might probably divide this up into three or maybe four variations, and develop each one in a 2:30-3:00 piece to give the material the time it needs to flow and sing more naturally.

    You're probably right. But, hey... that's what this new schtick of mine is all about: learning how to write in a style different than what I'm used to! I'll get better at it the more I do it.

    Absolutely!

    And never be afraid to scrap material, or rip it apart and rework it.

    One of the more valuable things you learn with time is the courage to apply the red pencil like a paint roller... lol.

    Thanks, Louis. I think I'm going to do "Majesty" next... I already have an idea for it.

    Damn! I don't know why, but my browser won't go there. If it isn't one thing, it seems it's 10 million others. I'd like to take David's red paint roller to this computer!!! Well, to be absolutely honest, I'd like to do a little more than that!!!! By the way David, your comment cracked me up!!! But to not make light of what 'you' have been trying to do, I hope it all works out alright. Guess that's all I can say.
