    Winter Frolic/Joy to the World

    Well, I finished the Charlie Brown piece. Its probably less Charlie Brown, and, more or less, Christmas.
    I hope you enjoy it. Any comments are welcome.

    I really like the composition!

    The recording sounds kinda monophonic.
    Is that your intention?

    My initial impression is that it would probably sound better in stereo.

    Great song , though.

    Thanks. No, it wasn't--thanks for the great suggestion.
    I have remixed it with more separation of the instruments.
    Still could use a little more, but that's beyond me.
    Thanks!

    I think this turned out great as a Christmas tune and the title is perfect! I love that you kept the Guaraldi piano. The handbell touch is very nice. I agree that some mixing needs to be done to add some brightness to the overall recording, but other than that, I think it's Snoopy! I like minor chord progression resolution beginning around measure 70? It's a little different than when first intro'd at measure 19? Yes/No? Maybe I'm hearing it incorrectly, but I like the slight surprise.

    Thanks for sharing!
    Cheers!

    Thanks! I've mixed it once more with your suggestions in mind.

    Yes, it is different. I bring it in 2 measures earlier the 2nd time. I needed to go ahead and move somewhere else for the melody. And then its altered to fit the "Joy to the World" melody the 2nd time.
    I'm really trying to use some different chords and not be afraid to use some notes that are not in the major scale of the tonic. Hey, I even modulated up a step (that's about all I can handle now--there was some other places I wanted to go, but didn't know how to get there).
    Thanks for your comments.
