Some lively music inspired loosely by Renaissance dance music. This piece is actually mostly live, with some virtual instruments where I was unable to play live versions. Interestingly enough, aside from the chords, the piece was more or less entirely improvised... just a crudload of takes.

Instrumentation:
SATB Recorders (played by me)
Brass Choir (not historically accurate- tenorhornen, althornen, trombone, bass trombone)
Choir (sung by me)
Zithers and Gusles (in intro) (also me)
Hand Percussion- Camoshark
Timpani, Tubular Bells - Versilian Studios
Virginal, Lute, Harp - ERA
Strings- Spitfire Albion

"Choir (sung by me)"

I would be interested to hear how you recorded the choir by just yourself? Its pretty impressive! Did you just record several takes and pan them around?


samulis responds:

Yep! That's it. This is essentially one giant multi-track project, like 70 tracks total or something. About 16 of those are choir tracks, each one being a single pass with me singing, panned out slightly and with a slightly different vocal tone/character.


This one is very interesting to me and you got the sound for that period down pretty spot on. The only weird thing to me is the mixing between the two styles of chant and festival (secular) type music in one piece. I haven't heard that before. You being the one to sing the choir part is impressive. Well done!

samulis responds:

It's a bit targeted more as a main menu track or something, so I wanted to cover multiple bases with one piece. I think it may have worked, although yeah, it is weird for sure!

Let's just say I had to take a lot of takes. Must be like 70 tracks in this thing all said and done. :D
