Description
My new software - Magix music maker arrived this morning - so I'm just playing.... I have to say, I'm very impressed with this software!

The Coventry Carol tells of the 'Slaughter of the Innocents' - when Herod's men slew all the newborn male babes.

Lyrics
Lully, lullay, Thou little tiny Child,
By, by, lully, lullay.

O sisters, two, how may we do,
For to preserve this day;
This boy youngling for whom we do sing,
By, by, lully, lullay.

(chorus)

Herod the King, in his raging,
Charged he hath this day;
His men of might, in his own sight,
All young children to slay.

(chorus)

Oh, woe is me, poor Child, for Thee,
And ever morn the day;
For Thy parting, neither say nor sing,
By, by, lully, lullay.

Haunting to say the least
I like the effect you use... very imaginative. It would be great to hear a
version of this with the vocal somewhat less effected. Well done!

Have you been listening to them? I have to agree with aclarke in
every way… this is an imaginative interpretation but I could do
with hearing a version where the effect is less prominent. Thanks
so much for posting though.

holy crap
this song actually scared me.

Ever thought about doing something for a horror movie? For real, this
would be a great song in the middle of a film.

Wow, thanks! I was aiming for it to be relaxing, but at the same time disturbing.... it is about the slaughter of the innocents, after all...

I like the voice
I like the effect the voice has. Very haunting and very compelling at the
same time.

Really nicely done.
