I'm contacting each of the 18 composers in order to write liner notes, which will soon be posted alongside the album for you to download.
However, at this writing I have not heard from the following people:
Edward J Fiebke Jr.
If you don't contact me, you will have no input into what will be written about your piece! I very much want to hear from you because I want to tell your story.
Please answer the following in an email sent to email@example.com immediately:
Dear Garritan Christmas Album Composer:
Under Gary Garritan’s direction, I am writing liner notes to accompany the Garritan Christmas 2006 album. I am a listener and a fan, in addition to being a music journalist. I would like to present information about you and your compositions so that the people that download the albums can learn more about you and your work.
Please reply with the following information:
How would you like your name to appear?
Where do you live? (City, state, country)
Are you a professional composer or arranger? Are you an amateur? What are your notable accomplishments? (please be brief)
What is the full name of your piece, in English? Does it have another name in its original language?
If your piece is based on a traditional or public domain work, do you know the name of the original composer, his or her nationality, and the year that the original was written? What is the language of the original lyrics?
If your piece is a contemporary composition NOT based on a traditional or public domain work, are you the composer? How should I list the copyright or attribution?
What can you tell me about the recording or sequencing of each of your pieces on the GPO Christmas albums? Did you do all the work alone, or were other people involved? Are their any real acoustic instrumental performances in this recording, or is it all samples? Can you tell me specific information about the Garritan products you used in this piece? How about other products? (computer platform, sequencer, plug-ins, software synthesizers or samplers, notation programs, or other software or hardware products).
Is there anything else you would like us to know?
Thank you very much for your participation.
