    The Sermon & Prelude

    It's time for a good old sermon. But first the prelude.

    The prelude reminds me a bit of "Unchained Melody" ... I think that's what it's called.

    Very nice work, I really enjoyed the rhythm of the second part. Something about it does give it the feeling of a Sermon. The piano sounds great. Very catchy melody as well. Well done!

    Thanks for the positive comments Sean.

    The prelude is actually borrowing melodic structure from Unchained Melody & Roy Orbison's Love Hurts, modified a bit and then given a more classical feel and pumped up a bit.

    The Sermon is a feel good gospel structure that uses an old fashioned intro as a bridge. I also threw in a 50's rock intro as a second bridge to extend it with the original bridge.

    So you start with an earthy,somewhat narcissistic romanticism which then gives way to a more other worldly, altruistic romanticism. That's life.

    Well done, Phil -- the gentle prelude works well leading
    into the "big sound" of the latter material; and then the
    jazzy reflection and development that follows...

    I'm not sure what the subject of the sermon is; but I
    enjoyed this a great deal more than the one I heard
    this morning... lol!

    Best,

    Glad you liked it David.

    I was surprised how big a sound I could develop with the strings. I think the piano coming through helped keep it from getting to mushy.

    I guess the sermon was about skipping the sermon and getting right to the fun stuff.
