This piece was a collaboration between myself and a good friend from awhile back. She and I created this while goofing around on her piano and had big dreams and ideas of how cool it would be if we could add orchestra, choir and whatnot. Anyways, I told her that if I ever really got into making music I would try to make it into a full length track. Well.... five plus years later.... I have finally done just that... sort of.
This piece has taken me eight months to complete, most of the meat of it was finished within the first two months the rest was all tweaking and testing. Which I carried a little too far and quite possibly just ended up making it worse. Not completely, just some.
Style-wise I tried to emulate some her favorite composers. Namely: Danny Elfman, James Horner, James Newton Howard and Alan Silvestri.

Hope you enjoy it!

I absolutely love this...I was wondering if you ever consider using it for video because I WOULD LOVE to see this in action it reminds me of childhood Christmas....

Thank you very much! I can't tell you how happy I am to hear that!
I actually had an idea for a short film but lack the connections and resources to make it happen. Perhaps one day I can.=)

When I voted this song I saw 1.10 on rating, there are two possible explanations, 1- someone accidentally pressed "0", or 2- someone is really jealous.

Great composition, filled with beauty, and the choirs, perfect!, quiet and delightfully set!, I like it's taste and the feeling!, I really like your work! :)

And you nailed it, it sounds so much like "Christmas" indeed!

P.S. I don't know if this suggestion is actually helpful, but I must say that the cello transition between 1:45 and 1:48 (D4 ==> C#4) is kind of "cliché", I've done many cliche things too, but well I'm just sayin' I gues that you know what I mean :D

To my personal taste this piece is 4.0 stars and 5/5....
....also, excuse my poor english :3

Keep up the great work man! :)

Thank you very much for taking the time to review my work! Coming from someone of your talent here on Newgrounds that mean a alot.
I've heard horror stories of the zero-bombers here on NG but It's hard to tell if people are just out to vote down every song they hear because they feel like it or if they genuinely found my music to really be that bad. Though it is a relief to see some people do like it.
Actually, I understand exactly what you mean by cliche. That part has been quietly gnawing at back of my mind for awhile. I'm kind of a sucker for those kind of parts in music. :)
I'm glad you mentioned it though. Now that someone else besides myself noticed it, it probably means I should try something different.
Thanks again for your words of encouragement and advice. It is an immense help!

Oh, and don't worry, your English is perfectly fine. :)
