    Ah! Is it Christmas morning already?

    This piece always reminds me of a warm Christmas morning with the glow of the Christmas tree lights and the sunrise just starting.

    Your arrangement was light and lifting. The intro and the transition at 1' 04" were a little jazzy in chord presentation. I would have like to hear that carry over into the verses themselves, but that is just personal taste.

    Only real negative is that I get a clipped sound on the last note of the piece. Make sure you are not overpowering the Kontakt Player with the volumes of all the instruments. Check the output of the Kontakt Player (its mixer) and see if you get a red clip warning on your last note. If you do than back off the volume slider for that output.

    I really enjoyed the piece and I believe it would sound even better with live instruments (well live instrument players) playing it!

    Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Gary:

    Nice to hear Christmas come a little early and your brass
    choir is a good introduction to the Holiday Season.

    Everything sounded fine to me except the last two notes.
    They seemed to be extremely loud. If intended, fine.

    Thanks for posting this Gary.

    Thanks for listening, Rich.
    Good points to consider. The mix of straight & Jazz should have a common thread.
    Regarding the last note, it's like an overly abrupt stinger.

    Ditto! Thanks for listening, Jack.
    I'll fix it soon.
