    A Christmas song for the forum

    This is my attempt at rendering an old hymn using the GASP and the Gofriller, played into Sonar and then edited. The song dates from 1871, when the music was composed by Sir John Goss to words that were written in 1851 by Edward Casnall.

    "See amid the winter's snow,
    Born for us on earth below,
    See the tender Lamb appears,
    Promised from eternal years."

    I tried to capture an arrangement I remembered of this song with the piano and cello. I hope this is enjoyed, and I'd like to wish everyone here a joyful Christmas! John

    Wow that was really eloquently played bigears. Well done.
    Very nice blend between the 2 instruments and the dynamics were very smooth.

    I really enjoyed that piece. Thank you for the listen.

    I haven't heard this old hymn in quite a few years. Thanks for sharing such a beautiful arrangement of it. That is some sweet tender cello and piano playing.

    Merry Christmas to you also. Really enjoyed the
    wonderful sound you have created with the
    new Steinway and the Gofriller. I've had my Gofriller
    now for a year, but haven't done much with it. I
    always get so bogged down with arranging other people's
    music that I don't have time for my own........mostly.

    A really wonderful Christmas song and elegantly played.

    BRAVO, John
