I can see that you've put work into this. It lacks what it takes to really make me enjoy it, though. However, I'm extremely picky about this song. It's my favorite Christmas theme and I have high expectations for anyone who arranges it. I think what you need to remember when composing this song is that it is extremely powerful and emotional. Also, the bells are meant to ring in certain parts, but don't carry the melody so the bells don't need to have the most perfect sound (though that's nice). I'd definitely give this one another sound.
I really enjoyed this... as for suggestions... well I actually used to sing this song in choir so maybe if you got a copy of the sheet music for the choir version you could pick out some of the tenor and bass notes and some the other melodies of the song from there.. that might spice it up a bit though it doesn't need much... great job
i hav always LUVVVED the song! i think this made it SOOOOO much better! it could actually sound like a theme song for some person. some awesome futuristic gunslinger dude maybe? idk wtf? ITS AWESOME!
Thank you so much for your review. I certainly wasn't expecting such positive feedback. You've brightened my night a little more! :D
