    2 GPO4 Versions of "Good Christian Men Rejoice" 1. Violin/ Harp 2. Trumpet/ Organ

    I'm so very sorry that I just posted about this hymn yesterday, but I wanted to share with everyone the fun that I've been having with GPO4. This was an experiment in orchestration with very similar notes and chords but different instruments and timbre.

    Version 1 is a little lighter using violin, harp, children's voices, and the shekere (or seed gourd.)https://www.box.com/s/s02evjlon96u9otxtonm
    Version 2 is scored for piccolo trumpet, organ, and shekere.https://www.box.com/s/lak5j6jrwsu2afp0knrm
    Thanks for listening!

    PS Just wanted to say that the trumpet version sounds just like me playing live and in my style. My brother Ryan would call it "Rodneyistic!"

    OK, right before being here, I was on the original thread for this project - Maybe I would've been less confused if the versions were all on one thread--?

    I like the trumpet version very much. The piccolo trumpet in GPO is one of the better brass samples in GPO, glad to hear you using it.

    --Is the other MP3 different than the one on the other thread? I see two different URLs--

    What happened is this: I thought I was just going to share the violin and harp version that I arranged as a soundtrack for an upcoming performance for a school, but then late last night inspiration and play struck, gosh darn it, hehe. So I wanted to post that one also.

    They are the same MP3, and thank you for listening Randy. The piccolo trumpet IMHO is probably the best Garritan brass instrument. I wish that trumpet solo 1 KS just simple had a little bit more magic to it.
