    Mary's Lullaby

    Well, it's been a while since I've written anything, let alone something orchestral. Still, I got the itch lately and put this together. It's pure piano, but I believe it'll translate well into something orchestral. Mary's Lullaby is a Christmas Song.

    Very nice. It has a very Renaissance feel. When you orchestrate this you might use instruments suggestive of that era.

    Fossman,

    This certainly will translate nicely into something orchestral. There are many ways you can go with this in an orchestral sense. Naturally, I hear a harp in there (well, what's Christmas music without harp ).

    Hopefully this can be a part of the next Christmas CD.

    Thanks for posting Mary's lullaby.

    I am actually working on the orchestration for it right now. My only problem, however, is how to synthesize the vocals. I have it arranged right now for a soloist (Mary) and a standard SATB choir in addition to the orchestra itself.
