Hi, Gary - Sweet. This is one of the best of your Christmas carol projects I think.
Technical note - Have you noticed that the default tuning for the Tubular Bells in GPO is a bit off? I'm not at my music computer at the moment, but I know that whenever I use them, I need to fine tune them by a few cents. They're off-key in the opening of your song but could be adjusted just slightly in Kontact.
Very nice Holiday music, this and all the others you posted, Gary!
I have always loved the Czechs, they are all over around here and between here and San Antonio, settled Ennis, TX. and the city named West, TX., probably several others. So I'm not surprised i like one of their 19th century carols, I think this is the first time i have ever heard one. It makes me want to check out some more.
Thanks for listening, David.
I think entertainment venues push songs that we already hear-sometimes ad nauseum-without searching for all of the different cultures contributions to Chrismas listening. Last year, I concentrated mostly on German & English carols. I still used a few German & English this year, but added Puerto Rican Spanish and Czech. There are so many songs & so little time....
Thanks for listening, David(Leaf.)
I first became aware of Czech "activity" in Texas in the town of West, North of Waco. Castroville, West of San Antonio, was also settled by Czech.
San Antonio has an interesting history of late emigrants.
The city was still bothered by occasional Indian raids, so they required
late arriving immigrants to settle in the areas outside of San Antonio. To name a few: New Braunfels & Fredricksburg on the North & Castroville &
Floresville on the South.
