Hey, guys 'n' gals! Please have a listen to my song, "Glorious Day." I created it in BIAB, did some tweaking in RealBand, then handed it over to @dcuny for some post-processing mixing and arranging in Reaper. I would love to hear your feedback on it. (See Song Summary and lyrics below)

*********** LYRICS

Glorious Day

The earth is dark and cold.
Great power they behold.
Then with gentle hands, He makes them both.

Chorus:
Oh, glorious day! Glorious day.
Oh, glorious day! Glorious day.
2:Oh, they had a plan: eternal God would become a man.
3:Oh, when he died, he gave us all eternal life.
4:Ah, no more tears, no more fears, no more pain.
Oh, glorious day! Glorious day.

Why are you afraid?
Remember what the prophets said:
A savior born to break your chains.

God proved Satan lied,
When the lamb was crucified.
Darkness and thunder, we deserve to die!

You wonder where and why.
Seek and you will find.
Look up, your redemption draweth nigh.

This is really well done!! The melody is haunting, and the echo of the vocal is perfect for the feel. Arrangement builds and falls nicely. Great choice of RTs and execution. No criticism from me on this one!! Take care. Greg

c.k. (and David)

Nice write. A tight lyric that keeps you listening - always aware of the what the lyric attempts to convey. A nicely "comfortable" melody - what it needs to be...

The opening staccato string hits are nice!

The reverb at first seemed heavy until the chorus. By my third listen, I did not notice it, though... (you could allow that to "build" through the first verse)

Beautiful vocal!

The cello works well (it almost always does). The accompanying strings are tasteful.

The pace of the rise and fall is nicely done - terrific "big ending".

Nice song. Nice production. Nice mix.

Great entrance! Welcome to the Showcase!

This is beautiful!
And we definitely love the repeating echo.
Kind of a 60s 70s feel to it all.

Thank you so much! BTW, my favorite instruments are cello and guitar. I'd probably just use those if I thought I could get away with it. haha!

Thanks, you guys! Uh... You guy and gal! :-)

We'll see if my Neil Diamond influence comes out more in the future. :-D

Again, I appreciate everybody's comments. You're very kind! This is my first-ever produced song, and Mr. David Cuny played a huge part in getting it to where it is.

You guys heard it here first! (Is that how it usually happens? We show off for our PGMusic family first? heheh)

I'd initially had a much more subtle effect on the echo/reverb in the initial mixes, but c.k. asked that it be larger, and I'm a sucker for the sort of thing, so I didn't say no. wink

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Hi ck and David,

As others have said above me, this is a sensational listen. The vocals are fantastic.

The melodic timing of the two bars of "Oh glorius day, glorius day" is interesting. It's what grabbed me. To me it seemed that the melody was essentially a bar of 5/4 followed by a bar of 3/4 (total of 8 beats over two bars). I couldn't tune out of this melody sufficiently to isolate the backing in my mind but it seemed like some of backing stayed as a straight 4/4 (though I'm not sure all of it did). This tug-of-war between time signatures appealed.

The arrangement, the production and the mix are truly outstanding. It's easy to hear that a great deal of effort has gone into getting it right.

Overall, very, very professional sounding from start to end! You've both done a great job!

Regards,
Noel

Good write and instrument selections. David, sounds radio ready to me. Very creative and entertaining mix. CKlester, I hope you will submit this to your local contemporary Christian radio station and ask them to add it to their lineup.

Thanks, Jim! That's very kind of you to say! I wonder if a radio station would do that.
