Greensleeves (Novus Lemma)



 Genre: Celtic
No artwork

Get Flash to see this player.

A reflection of the popular Greensleeves tune with a new theme. I thought I might delve into the piece slowly, sort of like a storyteller might do with text he reads. This musical story grabs at the audience, slowly building and then triumphantly takes off as if it were a "victory" fanfare to a battle long forgotten. I wanted it to sound new, yet traditional at the same time. Honoring that ageless quality Greensleeves has always had.

Better than the original to my ear.
Appropriately Romantic and somewhat Cinematic.

Seems to be some Track hiss that the Gate missed in low volume passages, but not a big deal.

The counterpoint instrument (chimes?) at the three-quarter mark competes for room with the piano's main voice. Perhaps a pan further off center would create some more room. If not, some EQ will probably help resolve it.

Great "Telling" of the Piece.

Best Regards,

RT, thanks for your feedback. Yeah, I lost the original master and what I had left was a remast I had attempted several years back, and when I ran it thru I had punched too much, and ended up forcing too much treble, etc. One of these days I will attempt to re-record. But thanks for the kind feedback!

This is one of my favorite melodies of all time, and you somehow manage to make it fresh and original, and even modern, all while still maintaining the beauty and sensitivity of the original.

I've got no real monitors tonight (just the imac's litle speakers) so I can't really comment on sound quality, but I like the originality of the arrangement a lot.

So nice
I love the way this classical piece becomes dramatic, but then ends simply and pure to the grace of the song. It has a wonderful feel to it.

Wow, is it possible that this is better than the traditional version? I really do think so. I love hearing people's different variations on old classics like this one, without taking away from it.

Recording indie keyboard music since 2000. I Started putting up tracks on mp3.com back when it was the "only" music scene on the internet, and just enjoyed sharing music. Once I realized that some actually enjoyed listening, I kept at it back when I ... [see more]
