This song is about my (Anne-Marie's) sister who died recently.
Although her cancer was cured she suffered from some terrible side effects. She decided not to go on. Although understandable her decision came as a shock to us all.
Composing this song for her, helped accepting it.

First I am so sorry for your loss - such a hard thing to face.

The song and video are both absolutely beautiful. So moving.

Well done.

WOW what a great tribute!

I really liked your arrangement, vocals, and especially the lyrics. I was drawn in right from the start!

Rob and Anne-Marie,

So very sorry to hear of your loss. This song is a beautiful as I'm sure she was. People pass on but what they leave behind lives on and it's obvious she left a lot of warmth and love behind. A simply gorgeous song that further embellishes the time you had with her and the precious memories she scattered about. Beautifully done!

Alan & Di

Wow... cool tune on a difficult subject.

I have 2 songs on my site that were inspired by folks who had cancer... one is recovered and the other passed on.

It's probably the hardest kind of song to write. But as you pointed out, it can be cathartic.

Thanks Herb,
Yes it can be cathartic.
We already listened to some songs on your website, which two songs are you referring to?

Wow, where to start? My condolences on your loss. Your production here is so good, everything stands out like you were in my living room performing live. I love that you went with such a simple arrangement. Just so well done. And I'm a big fan of your videos and this one is no exception. Marianne's photo at the end is beautiful and haunting with the music you have written for her.

Notation Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

There are Notation Enhancements in the NEW Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows! These include:
•A new button in the Print Options dialog which lets you quickly print a "chords only" fake sheet. You can also access this from the right-click menu on the chord sheet.
•A new track type (Drums) is now available for The Melody and Soloist tracks.
•Clicking close to a stave line will put a note on the stave line instead of between stave lines. (Previously, you had to click extremely close to a stave line to insert a note on The line.)
•Double-clicking on the Standard mode Notation window (or on the time line in Editable or Staff Roll mode) plays the song from the current time location. Previously, it played the song from the beginning of the current bar.
•Holding down the [Ctrl] key and pressing the zoom in/out buttons results in finest possible incremental adjustment in size.
•In The Notation Windows Options dialog, The clefs split point asterisk indicates that C5* is middle C.
•Pressing The space bar plays the song from the current time location, not the current bar.
•The clefs split point can be set by the spin controls.
•The right-click menu in the Editable or Staff Roll mode Notation window has an option to change the current beat resolution. Previously, the only way to do this was to right-click on the time line.
•There's a keystroke entry notation mode - the 'N' mode, which lets you enter a melody entirely using keystrokes. The keystrokes are N to enter a note, up/down cursor to change its pitch, and left/right cursor to move the time line.
•You can now edit any track in the Event List Editor. When The dialog opens, it will show you the MIDI data in the current Notation track.
•You can quickly enter forced accidentals from the right-click menu.
