OK, actually there is nothing specifically Christmas about this song but I am recording it for a girl's Christmas album, so there! GOS strings are featured (starting about 2/3 through). I can actually take credit for the arrangement this time This is a rough but probably close to final mix.

Great arrangement. Nice voice too. The only comment I have is that her voice/words get a little lost on the end of a phrase from time to time when the background gets a bit bigger.

Again, the arrangement is wonderful, full, creative and very exciting.
I may be asking for some help soon with my arrangements and vocals!
