Another track ... done with the _BEATBOX.STY Beatbox Hip Hop style ... and with a spoken words recording on top (as you've probably figured out by now, I can't really sing, haha!).

The title is somewhat misleading ... it's supposed to depict the Virgin Mary's own "Gethsemane", when she has to run away with the Child Jesus to a foreign land to save him from being killed with the other innocents by King Herod ... and also the plight of refugees everywhere, who have to leave their homeland (often with their young children) in order to escape a dire fate.

But enough of my explaining the song, haha ... what do we think? :-) Thanks for any and all feedback!

Interesting song James. Spoken word is a new genre for me. Excellent lyric and well done with the back track..

Hello James,

I don't listen to a lot of spoken word. But I'm glad I clicked onto this one. The backing tracks are the perfect frame for your vocal presentation. Very nicely done! Enjoyed my listen. Wishing you the very best.

Nice work on this one James smile The backing tracks you chose paired with the vocal performance makes for a really unique and chilling listen. The spoken word delivery synced up with the drums really well too.

Thanks for sharing!

James… I’ve listened to several of your compositions, and they have a lot to offer!! have you ever considered asking for a collaborator for your work? I believe there are vocalists in this community who could provide the voice for your songs. This one, in particular, has all the structure and form for a great singing track. And I love the message. Give it a try!

Thanks everyone - you really are, all of you, so kind. Tano Music: it's a thought - I really would appreciate a vocalist for some of my tracks, I just didn't think that it could be done through here. I'm out with a heavy cold right now, so I will use the enforced time off to reflect and see what to do about this. But what a genuinely great idea - thanks!

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.
