Description
I first recorded this as an acapella version for Christmas 2006. Since I've now turned pretty much instrumental since then, I thought I'd post this - my latest instrumental version of it. This song is also known as 'Gabriel's Message', and is one of my favourite carols since I discovered it in 2006.

Usual culprits - MagicScore 5, Magicx Music Maker and EWQLSO.

And the image is very old - that was done with Daz Studio.

Lovely
Both the sounds and music. I like the fact that you have mixed traditional (church organ) with some modern synth sounds. It works really well. Very nice.

very nice
I enjoyed the idea of playing the section with different sets of voices (strings, then organ, then choir, etc.) Nice way to extend it. The strings/horns in the beginning (1:03) had a little bit of a crescendo attack on every note, that made them sound a little synthetic, but other than that, the whole thing sounded super, very nice mixing and arranging. And a pretty carol too!
ttfn,
Drakonis

Thanks, Feter!
Thanks, Feter! It was originally a Basque carol, and I don;t think anyone knows who was the original composer, now. But the Rev. Sabine Baring-Gould is most often accredited with translating the original Basque lyrics to English.

Great choice
Great choice of carols:) I like the second 'verse' of this particular arrangement the best. The organ is cool, but a bit 'bigger' than I think of this carol.

I like your album art, too.

what a joy
nicely done. Really lights up when the organ kicks in. Might I suggest you consider a mix with your vocal rendition posted back in 06? I listened to that as well and I think the two would marry quite well.

solemn and beautiful
The organs really get a bit scary in the end but you keep the listener with you.
This is a great melody.
Thanks to you !
