Thanks everyone who has listened and commented on this. I discovered I had made a fundamental mistake with the Altiverb plug-in. I wanted intimacy, but not that much. I have now hopefully fixed it and here is the new link:
This new piece is my rendering of an old tune that I discovered recently when reading some Robert Burns poetry. As I now have learned, he wrote his poem in 1791 and it was set to an old air known as Rory Dall's Port (air) which dated from the early 1600's.
My piece is closely related to a version by Karen Matheson and Paul Brady which can be viewed on youtube. I heartily recommend their heartfelt performance. Here is the link to their video:
I have tried to capture what I heard in their voices.
My band for this tune consists of the Garritan Auth. Steinway, a pair of Gorfriller cellos, generic guitar and stand-up bass samples, and two instruments from BelaDMedia, the beautiful low whistle and the quirky concertina with all the button noises, bellow wheezes, and creaking straps intact. I used Altiverb IR's and Sonar.
This one needs to get out into the world and be heard. I feel like I have made some progress recently and am beginning to understand a bit more. I hope this is enjoyed and as always, look forward to your comments and suggestions. John
