I am always very encouraged by your nice words.
And many thanks for listening to the both versions many times.
I also much appreciate your compliments to my group.

They played this performance with almost first look of my score.

Hi Shigeki

Thank you for bringing such beautiful music to the forum.
Both versions are quite delicious but I feel the the live version is a little more sympathetic to the music and to the vocalist somehow.
However I'm not a technical person and enjoyed both immensely.

Cheers.

Hello, Janne

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
I am always very encouraged by your nice words.
And many thanks for listening to the both versions many times.
I also much appreciate your compliments to my vocalist.

To write the string arrangement is a big fun for me.
I strongly recommend that you try once to write the string allengement.
I think you will surely succeed in it, because you always write good melody lines.

Best regards.

Hello, Richard

Thank you very much for taking the time to listen and comment.
Many thanks for listening to the both versions.
I am really glad you like this tune and my arrangement.
The vocalist recorded this song accompanied with the live version, the same vocal track was diverted to the RT version.
Maybe that is the reason you feel the the live version is a little more sympathetic to the music and to the vocalist.
Or perhaps the live performance may be slightly more human-friendly.

Best regards.

Shigeki, it’s nearly impossible to add anything to all the wonderful responses you have received for this tune (both versions).

We listened to both and they are equally beautifully produced. The instrumental and vocal performances are lovely and so well recorded. The mix sounds like each track has its place yet all work together to present a gorgeous soundstage.

We appreciate you sharing these productions with us!
