Gloria in Excelsis Deo

This piece is a humble orchestration of a much better version of the same hymn, and I did this as a New Year's Day gift to the friends that I met at Stonyhurst College a few days ago. I may not be able to do the original Gloria in excelsis Deo justice, but I can say this - it was heartfelt nonetheless.

Also, I note that I have been using FL Studio for almost a year now, and only now have I attempted to use master volume and tempo envelopes. I'll admit, the tempo envelopes help.

Composed by James MacMillan in 2010.
Remixed by Troisnyx on FL Studio 10 on 31 December 2011.
Time taken: Approx. 4 hours

Felix Novus Annus, amici.
Happy New Year, friends.

Nice listen but

The transition at 1:27 was a little abrupt and out of nowhere. (In my opinion at least.)

Troisnyx responds:

I agree; the volume envelope wasn't a good idea. Still, glad you liked it! ^_^


Nice to hear your music again, I'm glad this doesnt disappoint at all. Lovely orchestration :)

Troisnyx responds:

Thank you so much! ^_^
I like to think that much of it is due to the original tune by MacMillan. <3


This is a really good orchestration. I think its probably limited mainly by the realism of your solo strings, but hey, i cant afford those top notch sample banks so i cant complain. Also, the compression might be a touch heavy. Overall though, it has a grand and glorious sound, very fitting!

Troisnyx responds:

Thank you so much!

I'll admit, the solo strings were taken from the Touhou soundfont, which would probably be what Zun himself used in his early stages, so they aren't the best thing. I'd love to know where some people get their very good string samples from, and what they recommend. Still, I'm very, very glad you liked it! ^_^
