Digital Signposts has also picked up the New York Times mention:
Please feel free to leave a comment at Digital Signposts and also at the David Pogue of the New York Times blog - http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2006/...ristmas-album/
Thanks to David Pogue
for drawing attention to this one. The Garritan Music Library
has made some excellent Christmas Music
available for download. The spirit of this offer is summed up in a comment on David's post, by Wheat Williams; who was responsible for some of the marketing and sleeve notes:
"On behalf of the 18 composers on this year’s album, from across the United States, Iceland, England, Italy and Slovenia, I’d like to say thanks for giving us a mention. We want everybody to enjoy our free music, and to invite others to use their computers to make music of their own and share it with us."
Although the great day has passed and gone for another year, this really is too good an asset to pass over, (it is also timely to note that Auld Lang Syne
can be found amongst the MP3s). Many thanks and best wishes for a Happy New Year to Garritan and their music community, and hopefully, everyone's a winner. Garritan receives, well deserved, good publicity and we gain from the generosity of their community.
Happy New Year!
