    Christmas Album 2018 Special

    Hello Everyone,
    Very Special Announcement of Our Christmas Album Tradition


    Our new project for 2018 will be our:
    Decade-And-A-Half Anniversary Celebration


    Let the trumpets sing and the bells ring out (sounds like the title/s of some songs there somewhere).
    15 years of our tradition merits a special edition and here it is:

    That very first album, back in 2004, permitted contributors to enter more than one song. Also the same song could be entered by more than one contributor and medleys were, therefore, also avaialble.

    To mark our very special celebration, our 2018 Anniversary project is mirroring that first album with the same requirements.

    The other requirements remain the same:

    * Your song must be in the public domain or can be your original that clearly reflects Christmas.
    * Garritan libraries only must be used but can include a 'live' singer or choir.
    * Please, no live recordings of instruments as listeners might confuse with libraries.
    * The duration of each recording should be no more than four minutes.
    * Your song must be your own 'performance', arrangement or your original Christmas song.

    The deadline for sending in all entries is October 31st. As before, sending in a song is no guarantee that it will be included on the CD.

    Those who nominate their songs retain full ownership of their arrangement/recording/original composition; this is not compromised in any way by anyone.

    Do please PM me or send an email if you would like to discuss anything.

    Very best wishes,

    Michael

    Hello Everyone,

    Dan Kury was one of those original contributors from that first album of 2004. We have a few more regular contributors who were on that album and who I am hoping will join our project this year.

    I would love to have as many as possible from that first album to rejoin us for our anniversary. If anyone is in contact with any of those first contibutors do please let them know in the hope they will join us.

    Our First album and contributors can be seen on our "Friends of Garritan" website using the "Christmas Albums Collection" link.

    Very best wishes,
