Very beautiful and emotional song, some elvish like delicacy. To get full Celtic experience real choir and bagpipes would be nice, but I like it this way also, good use of MIDI supertracks smile

Janne, I never thought of using the pipes. I DO have bagpipe samples I can use, so yes, I will use them in my next air

Beautiful and expressive melody / music!

I enjoyed listening to it... it is a very smooth sounding composition... almost ambient celtic... if there is such a genre... smile

Thank you for sharing!

Graham,
Very soothing fantasy composition. Especially I liked the culmination that started at 1:50 and how you resolved that to end of 2:20.

Thank you for sharing!

Misha.

You did an outstanding job on this, Graham smile It is truly gorgeous, and incredibly well textured. It flows beautifully, and the progressions are magnificent. It sounds so lush and grand.

Lovely song Graham. So glad your daughter loves it. My kids and and especially my grandkids have raised their eyebrows with some of the songs I have created with them in mind. Hopefully they will become an acquired taste for them.
This is so beautiful and relaxing. Melody just floats within the song. Well done

Great work on this Graham. The arrangement is a pleasure to listen to and rhythm is easy to follow. Really enjoyed the movement of the cello with the rest of the instruments. Glad to hear your daughter loved it too!
