This is Sleigh Ride (Winter Night) by Frederick Delius, published in 1890.
The Finale recording is low volume (don't know why) but be careful about turning up too loud, it has some big moments.
I think the composition has a lot of charm, it seems to be in an outline of goofy/serious/goofy-serious.
I have been tweaking the overall dynamic range to try to narrow it some, as well as the tweaking dynamics and articulations to try to get it sounding good enough to submit it for possible inclusion in the Garritan Community Christmas Album.
All instruments are GPO.
Any help and feed back is welcome.
Right now it is too much for my mac powerbook and it's logic express, it breaks up and is garbled, so i moved it to windows, but still trying to figure out how to operate Reaper...so this is just directly to wav from Finale, then converted to mp3 with itunes.
I can't post much between now and Monday night, but will try to get here at least once each evening.
Thanks in advance.
PS: This is my first rendering of an existing score by someone else.
