    New piece with Garritan and Diva

    I got Diva today and had to try it out on something I started last week! It's been a long time since I've had anything new to share. This uses GPO, GOS, Westgate, Diva and VotA. It's still more of a sketch/demo than a complete piece but I hope it will grow into something. Feedback welcomed!

    Fred,


    My what a lovely work! I especially liked the intro - that could last longer for my ears. The medieval-yet-modern quality is very well done, and the following sections are quite effective. It seems more than a sketch! Yes, let it grow into something - the material is there.

    Nice handling of the various libraries - the integration is well done.

    I liked this!

    Especially the introduction of the piano. Nice chord progression.

    I'm not quite sure what mood this piece represented though.

    Some passages were quite melodic and bright, while others were darker in minor….. The choral voice section combined modulation, gave it kind of a eerie ghostly effect.



    …..cool

    (…..hmmm.. That gives me an idea)

    Very nice indeed.

    Fred, some lovely, evocative writing in this.

    I do hope you will take this beyond the sketch phase.

    There's a strength and richness to much of this thematic material that is just begging to be brought forward!

    Thanks everyone!! The mental picture for this was the scene of the hobbits and Frodo parting and boarding the Last Ship in Return Of The King. I know I'll develop it further once I get the time. Plus, when I can get it I'm going to add Bela D's new children's choirs to it

    Hauntingly beautiful. Loved every second of it. Can't wait to hear it expanded.
