So Lady Arsenic released a song today which can be found here. /audio/listen/497766

I've always loved this song, it's just a gorgeous melody, a pretty haunting lyrics. Just the way I like it.

Anyway I spent a few hours today adding a few layers of my own. Some woodwinds, some strings, and just a tad bit of choirs.

I can spend days, maybe weeks on this piece but sadly I don't have much more time so I wanted to both spread awareness of this song and do my own little thing on the side.

Lyrics (copied from original song)
Mile by mile and day by day,
The Lonely Bard goes on.
Through the wind and rain he makes his way
And sings his mournful song

To every village high and low
He went to sing his tale of woe.
He never had a place to call home
And wandered through the hills all alone

From verdant spring to bleak chilly fall,
He followed naught but his muse's call.
No shelter had he from the bitter cold
And perished in Winter's icy hold.

I see him in my dreams and hear his cry,
Another sleepless night goes by.
His tune, it haunts my every waking hour!
No solace can I find from his power

Long ago and far away
Upon a frozen moor,
He lost his life one tragic day
And haunts me evermore

Dear lord that was truly something!
LadyArsenic has a unique voice that went perfect with this melody.
Your additions to the original do not go unnoticed, yet they do not feel like additions at all, it's as if this is the way the original was supposed to be all along.

Anyway, thank-you both for the latest addition to my MP3's infinite playlist.

MaestroRage responds:

Thanks Druidtton! When I heard this track I heard these layers that could exist and they clicked right away without any type of struggling. That's one of the things I most enjoy about LA's work. It lends itself to expansion (while not necessary).

I'm glad you enjoyed the tracks and thanks again for the review!
