    A Star Shone Bright

    Here is the first movement in a 5 movement work I currently developing. It will be part of a Christmas Suite for Strings. I have already posted the 2nd movement called "As By Night Shepherds Watch" earlier on this board.

    Here is: A Star Shone Bright

    for those that have tried to load my work before this is on BOX.net and is more user friendly (Thanks rbowser)

    That's a lovely piece you have there. I think you have got some pretty good timing going on. I thought it was going to have a dry (as in more reverb needed) sound to begin with but when the other instruments come in, it isn't the case, it's fine.

    This is great to see you back so soon with more music for us, Bill.

    Beautiful - What a good mood setting opening movement for the project you described. Isn't it interesting how many of our favorite Christmas pieces are in a minor key, and have a gentle melancholy to them?

    And GReat that you availed yourself of Box. It really is so nice, simple and direct.

    BUT--Here's an experienced Box user tip for you. If the listener leaves the Box player unattended, whatever is next in the same folder will start playing, like a juke box.

    So as soon as "Star" was over, it started playing "Didac"--Simple solution - You need each piece in its own folder.

    Very nice string work, Bill--Thanks!

    Thanks rbowser, I didn't know that. I will make the changes.

    Thanks for your comments as always. You are right, many of the prettier carols are in minor keys (What Child Is This) - I guess because it gives them an old and ageless feel.

    Wonderful music. The more I stick around here listening, the less I say Bah Humbug.
    I like the reference to The little drummer boy in here as well.

    Ah Dirac sea is back so, I can go back to Bah Humbug!!!

    Well done

    Thanks Ron for the comments (even if the 'bah-humbug' of the Dirac Sea interupted your mood.) No one's caught that reference yet (Little Drummer).

    Thanks again for the comments.

    Just wonder why I am the 'black sheep' here - have a great Christmas. Sorry if I am a bore!

    My Dirac Sea - Bah Humbug - is a dark piece, makes me feel like a 'black sheep' Just a silly comment about the darker pieces I write.
