The winds are incredibly convincing. I was just about writing that you can spot an excellent rendition within the first few bars when the violin came in. For me it should have some more decremention in every tone, if I may say so. Strings were played with lighter bows then.
Other than that, fantastic! A big difference to your recent transcriptions!
I'm confused! What violin?
I assume by decremention, that you mean getting softer.
I do that at the end, do you think it would be good at the beginning
or prior to the brass taking up the melody.
These questions are for an explantion. I'm interested in what you are saying.

Perhaps he is referring to what happens at 00:30. I certainly did not take it as a violin anywhere anyhow. I am confused by what the lead voice instrument is as well at that point, trumpet doubled with oboe?
It is a nice arrangement on Pan-a-Pan though!! I like the percussion underneath it all very much.
Thanks Gary, Sean & Dargason
I have actually engaged in a Christmas Album of my own.
As mentioned on the Discussion room, I am wondering abou† what speed to record the songs on: "best" 12x, etc.
I will post each song on this site for comments.
You mentioned softening the muted trumpet; personally, I like the balance (your first instincts are worth trusting!) -- it lends the piece an appropriate portion of Near-East, exotic flavor.
Good luck luck with your album!
