My submission for the December NAC, Ho Ho Holidays, the theme of which was to cover lesser known christmas song.

A Swedish christmas carol melody ("Nu Taendas Tusen Juleljus" - Now are Lit a Thousand Christmas Candles, which was way too long a title for NG) in a viennese classical "theme with variation"-arrangement for string quartet.

You can check out a performance of the original melody here: atch?v=UFkYtOPx-Is

Hope you enjoy, happy christmas and a merry new year!

Sweet piece, nothing too outstanding, but a safe value. The samples are pretty damn decent too. Very nice piece. Kudos on getting a less known piece unless it's just me.

this definitely could have used some high quality instrumentation.. like say NI strings.. the strings do feel rather artificial... it is a nice unknown melody for the most part.. still the sound quality and closed in mastering kinda wrecks it a bit for me.. still the amt of detail put into this is noted and well appreciated :)

Great arrangement, and I like the theme too, but the sound is a little bit artificial, I think it could use some more work on mixing. Keep up the good work :)

Yeah, I really noticed some places where the sequencing could be improved when relistening to this. Ugh! Fast solo strings is so hard to pull off :/

I like your super classical approach. I love the string arrangement so much!

Finally, someone giving respect to Christmas carols. Kudos to you for the wonderful piece.
