A four hymn (For Him) instrumental medley. You'll recognize the hymns. Just over 3 minutes, but it took forever to do. I hope you enjoy it. :-)

Hymns and Hers...
Well, this dove has spread her wings and is flying just beautifully now... this is great Roxylee! Really tasteful orchestration, well balanced levels, nice use of reverb and not too much. And did I hear you play with the volume curves of the choir at the very end to have them raise their volume on those last two notes? OK, OK... critique... um... you could have had the last choral note held a little longer. The solo church bell near the end sounded a little like a doorbell, you may want to add in faint backing strings to avoid that stereotype sound. And I assume you were playing the keyboard to get all these notes in? Tell us in the description a little more about how you did this... these ain't loops, and you didn't pencil each note in, did you? Anyway, this is a beautiful tribute... bet you can soon start selling CDs at your church :-)
ttfn,
Drakonis

Wow, thank you, Eduard!
Coming from you, that's a real compliment and I feel very honored. Yes, I did
mess with the volume on the last notes, to try for a more dramatic ending-
only the echo wouldn't stop. What do I know?? LOL I don't have a MIDI
keyboard, so each and every note was hand placed. Am I nuts yet? (Don't
answer that). :-)

You are definitely...
...getting the hang of this composing thing! A clever an interesting (even
somewhat bold) idea. You pulled it off quite nicely. No tech crits beyond
those of our own beloved and wise dragon. Keep em comin!

Be well!

Ahhh, thank you, Mike
I'm learning, and it is very time consuming, but it is worth it, especially when
others like you appreciate the effort. Thank you very much for your
comments on this, as well as your very nice comments about my harmony on
the Poor Wayfaring Stranger collab. http://www.macjams.com/song/25291
I'm looking forward to more collabs with you. :-)

Hi Roxylee!
This is great-no wonder it took you ages, well worth the time though.

Thanks Roxylee

I am very..
...amazed that you don't have a midi-keyboard. This certainly took a lot
of time and thought. Good job here for sure. Very nice arrangement and
production. Great church bell.

Thanks, Jon
Those who don't play, pay. <G> It takes a long time, but it is still fun. Thank
you for listening. :-)

I know this took you a long time to put together, but you did a wonderful

God bless,

Rick

Thank you, Rick
Thank you for appreciating my efforts. Maybe someday I'll be half as good a
composer as you. We can dream, can't we? :-)

Roxylee said 4655 days ago (October 21st, 2006)
Wow, thank you, Feter
We are all musicians in here, because we all create music, but all I did was
place GB notes on the scale. I structured them by ear, lining them up to see
what sounded pleasing to my ears. I'd feel like a better musician if I could
actually read music or play an instrument well. People study for years and
years, and now with GB I can make music without having to study. Is that fair?
But I'm so glad I can do this because all these notes in my head need to have
a home. Thank you for your kind comments and I'm happy that you, an
accomplished musician, liked this hymn medley.

Nice
Nice job Roxy. And I was very happy to be able to recognize one of the
themes, the first one, a hymn used even in my country, This is a soothing
piece to listen to.

Thak you, Curry
That hymn is one of my favorites, too. I'm thinking to try doing some
Christmas songs if I get the time and ambition. I'm glad you liked these
hymns. :-)

Hi Roxy
Very nice. You are pretty good at the arrangements, making sure is not
more complicated that it should. Since I am not going to church this
weekend (work!) listening to your music helped. Thank you.
