    VARIATIONS ON "WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS" for winds

    Probably you could describe this as a fractured, perhaps strange
    Christmas Carol.

    ps for Randy
    I downloaded one freeware reverb, but couldn't get it to open.

    "Fractured" indeed, Gary! And maybe I'M fractured too, but I really like it.

    ---just ignoring the continuing reverb problem, making noooo mention of it.

    whoops.---I just did.

    Fun, quirky work, Gary. Probably not destined to be on the Garritan Christmas CD, but maybe Tim Burton will do a sequel to "The Nightmare Before Christmas" and you can submit it to him!

    Thanks for listening, Randy.
    I was under the impression that I had downloaded a reverb program, but it either disappeared or it's hiding somewhere. I did a search in Mac find and nothing showed up. Do you know of a freeware reverb for mac, or a program less than $100? Most programs seem to be for windows.

    Gary,

    "T'was the night before the fractured Christmas."

    Well I have say this has to be one of the more interesting arrangements on this tune I have ever heard. Even dry as a martini it works!

    Hmmmm loosing software....sound like you should loose the MAC Of course no so easy to replace.

    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Thanks for listening, Gary.
    This old dog has been using Macs since 1980. By the way, that Apple II had all the memory of 48 K.

    And the heart of a 6800 or something like that! I worked with some guys that had a DEC PDP-8 mini with a whopping 1K of core around that time. They had a contest who could boot from 8" floppy in the fewest hand entered instructions. The winner was 11 instructions.

    Thanks Leaf,
    I am working on my second Christmas CD.
    I did this arrangement last night and today. I plan to do 8 or 9 more before December. I will post each one and expect real feedback.
    Not all Carols can be approached as this one was because it wouldn't be appropriate. That would also be boring.

    Gary:
    As a fellow desecrater (sp?), I applaud you. A tune should be like a piece of clay to a sculptor, something to be shaped and reshaped until it has YOUR stamp on it or as Artie Shaw has supposedly said, a tune is something to play WITH, to see what YOU can do with it (that's paraphrased.)
    As to your great adventure into the unexpected and after all of the fireworks, I expected a little more spectacular ending, but that does not detract from my overall appreciation of an intersting and fun arrangement.
