...the most famous Italian Christmas Carol, "Tu Scendi Dalle Stelle" (You come down from the Stars), written in December 1754 near Naples by Alfonso Maria de' Liguori, a bishop/musician/theologian, who was canonized in 1839 by Pope Gregory XVI.

Apart from BIAB bodhran and rhythm guitar RealTracks, I've used a Seagull Performer Mini-Jumbo for the "basic" guitar melody track, while for the other guitar parts I've used my Godin ACS SA, via a Roland VG-99.

Buon Natale!

Beautiful tune. I didn't know about this song, so I am glad you brought it to my attention. Excellent choice for percussion and the guitars sound wonderful. Harmony playing is just right. Some mighty fine Christmas tunes abounding this season.
