...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!

Alfredo

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.

Band-in-a-Box® - Boxing Clever - Sound on Sound #TBT

Did you know that Band-in-a-Box® is more than 30 years old? I stumbled across this 1990 magazine article explaining the relatively new program, and think it's an enjoyable read for any Band-in-a-Box user - it really shows that we are always listening to user feedback when developing our program!

Read the article: Boxing Clever: Band-In-A-Box Software

A few of my favorite statements:

"The intention of PG Music's Band-In-A-Box package is to couple that speed and convenience with the improved flexibility of the personal computer. Versions are available for the Atari ST, Mac, and PC compatibles. Have the programmers succeeded? And can they rid themselves of the stigma of the auto-accompaniment section? Given the above state of affairs, the first hurdle that the program has to overcome is one of acceptance and, frankly, a name like 'Band-In-A-Box' is a bad start."

(I think our name was a great start!)

"The final results are, to say the least, impressive. Band-In-A-Box achieves something that most hardwired auto-accompaniment sections have never been able to do - inject a degree of feel into the music. It really does sound more human than so many of the computer generated pieces I've heard."

"...I'm quite convinced that PG Music will have a winner on their hands. This is one piece of software that you can get more out of than you put in."
