This is the final holiday song arrangement for this year! This time I'm mashing together two public domain songs, Auld Lang Syne and Debussy's Claire de Lune. I find all the older carols pretty challenging to work with since they tend to force a really specific sound. While I love the bittersweet tone of Auld Lang Syne, it can deteriorate into "sad drunkard" territory really quickly (especially with a bit of pitch drift).

Both Auld Lang Syne and Claire de Lune are in the public domain.

Thank you!

really calm and trance inducing song, the emotions you've created here are rare to find in most songs tbh

i really love the vocals in the background of the song, and you definitely incorporated the songs flawlessly. don't see any issues with the mixing, everything has its place

would love to see more from you!

sleepFacingWest responds:

Thank you! I’ve been focusing a ton on stock music in an attempt to find more scoring work these last few years. It’s good to work on some more personal stuff for once.
