    Faeries Among The Weeds (fourth attempt)

    Hey all, got another song for your listening pleasure and/or constructive criticism. Very similar in instrumentation to the last one but with a very different feeling... and a partial tutti. It's inspired by the music of Tchaikovski and O'Carolan (weird combination, eh?)

    Yes I know it's very simple.

    That's delightful, Mr. Chris. I like it. Yes, it's "simple", as you put it, but music doesn't have to be complex to be good. Way to go!

    My best,

    No way! Then it would have been something like:

    Hi y'all.

    This is my Fairy Windy Song.


    I wrote it before breakfast this morning.

    Regards,

    C.
    PS, glad you liked it.

    I prefer both at the same time, but thank you very much for your compliment and timely reminder.

    Really cool! A very delightful piece. Very strong, catchy melodies! I can indeed hear the Tchaikovsky influence, especially with that celesta. I love the pizzicato bass there in the beginning. Great work!

    This is my kind of music!

    Nice. Very whimsical. It seems like, at some points, you could milk a little more attack out of your instruments; some passages seem to go for staccato but sound a little too legato. There's one point where the strings definitely sounded to me like they needed more bite (around the middle). Otherwise, I thought it was really good.

    A very playful piece. I like it very much. I think it is well constructed. Thanks for posting.

    Hi, suspenlute

    This is great! Such a well done, un-cluttered arrangement of a spritely theme. Musical whimsy which only an ogre couldn't like.

    I like your choice of graphic at the site also--That's one of the infamous fake Fairy photographs which hoodwinked Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

    Thanks so much for a delightful musical romp.
