Hi Alan,
Long time no hear!
I got the same error message as well. But mine had a robot type metallic object floating around stating, "Error! Error! Sterilize! Sterilize!" :D :eek:

So it seems that I may be the first one who listens to this piece :)
In general I like your song very much ... but this synthi-sound which starts for the first time at 0:57 appears to me misplaced. Please don´t get me wrong, the notes are composed well but this sound shakes the whole wonderful athmospheare you´ve biult up ....... that´s the only thing I have to mention with regard to a criticism.

But nevertheless, you did a very good job.


Greeting, Blackster

Alan,
Fantastic piece. Big and inventive sound, but more important, soul. Maybe (I am not even sure about this) some very minor mixing adjustements before the CD. This is the music I would buy. It comes from the heart of an Artist. Keep us informed about the development of a commercial CD.

I just found this in my music library and when it started, I knew I had heard it before,, duh, I must have liked it enough to save it.
What a pleasure.

A wonderful piece . . . very soothing and yet powerful. Nice work! The instruments go very nicely together, and the horns sound great, as well as the strings. Keep it up!

I've been literally waiting for someone to do a piece like this. This is an unbelievably beautiful mixture of GPO and other instruments. Now, I have a lot more faith in GPO than I did a few minutes ago.... this is marvelous.

thanks for posting..

Thanks for the well-deserved bump of Mark's "The Celtic Land". I enjoyed hearing this again. It is so well done - excellent writing, arranging and mixing.
I agree with Ludovic that this music has soul and it's good to hear GPO masterfully used with other instruments. .

I liked everything about this peice.

It's also clinched my decision to go broadband. I'm missing too much good stuff around here without it.

Thanks Alan for presenting this, and kudos to Mark.

Mark.
This by far is one of the most expressive pieces I've had the pleasure to enjoy. Your programming of GPO is nothing short of Masterful! I am astonished at what I hear and was moved wholly throughout the whole piece. Definitely captured the spirit of the title! Five thumbs up. :)

Thanks Alan for posting Marks wonderful music.
