Lyrics
Comfort ye my people, saith your God.
Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem,
and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplish'd,
that her iniquity is pardon'd.
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness:
Prepare ye the way of the Lord,
make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Ev'ry valley shall be exalted and ev'ry mountain and hill made low,
the crooked straight and the rough places plain ...

This is
wonderful to hear. I love how you take us back to another time with the music and your performance which are perfect (love the falsetto) and then forward again at the end. Great stuff, cheers M

Very interesting
I wasn't expecting this at all - very interesting and ecclectic. You obviously have a range of influences as well as classical and you seem to be enjoying the experimentation here. Very enjoyable. I will check out some more of your stuff - you have intrigued me :-)) Also, sorry for my terrible German in my reply to your comment - and thanks for dropping bye!
Cheers,
Phil

Superb, Andreas
What a genius you are! You combine the ancient and modern and it works perfectly. Your voice is amazing, and each note is placed perfectly. And I love reading words from Isaiah 40. This is just beautiful all around.

This is beyond me
I'm just a sh*t kicking punk rock/alt rock guy. But, this sounds soothing to my ears, for what it's worth.

Sehr gut, mein Freund.

Tschüs,

Nicht schlecht Herr Speckt
Andreas, I just love the way you take various pieces of classical music and add modern arrangements/instruments to bring new life to them (and to allow musical neanderthals like myself to access them).

I sure hope you're able to release these wonderful posts on CD - I'd expect there'd be a real market for this style. Wonderful production and performance.

Amazing!

Did you misspell Handel....
.....or am I just too American? Seriously, this was a very enjoyable piece, and I want to thank you for commenting on one of my songs, for it brought me here and let me discover another wealth of good music on Macjams. It's late, but I'll be back to check more of your music. Thanks for this. Terry

Wow!! You took my breath away again. I love your music, your voice is

Peace Dee

I'm only half convinced
I loved the first half. Two thirds. Very nice combination of old and new sounds.

But, eh, that last bit doesn't work for me. The distance between the old and new is too large, and it doesn't come together. There are some timing problems too, for instance at and just before the 5:00 mark and quite badly at 5:50.
