    "Good Christian Friends Rejoice" for Violin, Harp, and Shekere

    "Good Christian Friends Rejoice" or "Good Christian Men Rejoice" for GPO4: Violin solo 1 KS, Harp KS, and Shekere (Seed Gourd) Aria: Concert Hall 2 reverb

    This is not for the Christmas album, this is just a fun, simple arrangement that I did in one day for a school's Christmas program.
    and with Garritan "children's choir" https://www.box.com/s/przoahfc140i2dhwoo6y

    The harp rings out beautifully. Quite nice!

    Thank you Daniel for taking a listen! That was the first time I used the Garritan harp. I scored it originally for guitar but the harp sounded more delightful.

    What a delightful pre-Christmas feeling. A touch of fine rhythm makes it complete.

    Thanks for sharing it.

    If you all have heard this version, please check out the piccolo trumpet and organ version on this thread: http://www.northernsounds.com/forum/...-Trumpet-Organ

    It's a sweet recording, Rodney, of a perennial favorite. I think the balance between instruments could be more equal, and the reverb could be pulled back perhaps. The harp is being played in a pianistic way - I thought it was a piano at first.

    --and I'm confused. In this particular post I'm replying to, you say you're adding choir - but this is the only link on this thread now? Look at the first post in this thread, the editing of the text - The original MP3 link was removed?

    ---and there's another thread for this song- I'll go take a look there, maybe I'll become less confused

    Or maybe I'm just not awake enough!

    In any case, it's a nice little project, Rodney!

    Thank you Max for stopping by on this little day project. Would you believe I have never even heard of this song until last year?

    I don't think I've ever heard this one either but the melody sounds familiar.

    I'm sure the children enjoyed the added rhythm.

    It wasn't exactly perfect but I liked the feel of it. I'm sure it worked well for the occasion.


    I did enjoy the listen.

    Yeah well composed, the rhythm is good enough to stick to listen the whole track and melodious to attract the sense organs to enjoy.
