You chose a somewhat difficult piece and did well with it. I'm very familiar with it because it's a staple of classical crossover, which I discovered here in my later years and enjoy. The flute is a little stiff and its natural decay seems abrupt, but I am used to this piece being sung so that may be the issue. Splendid work all told, I could not do this. Keep up the ambitious work!

I'm not overly familiar with this work of Franck's. You've done a great job, though. I really like that pan pipe... it's got such a haunting sound.
Whenever I hear a pan pipe, I always, without exception, think of Gheorghe Zamfir playing the "Lonley Shepherd" and Simon and Garfunkle's "El Condor Pasa"... You took me there again
This is a wonderful arrangement. Kudos to you! It's easy to tell that you've taken a great deal of care in keeping the arrangement authentic while giving it a more popular music twist. I thoroughly enjoyed listening.
All the best, Noel

TuneMonger: thank you so much! Yes, it's an amazing piece, a challenge to arrange (which is why stubborn ol' me took it on, haha). Yes, there are problems with the panpipe sounds a little - nothing I could sadly do about them, they sound like that "out of the box" (so to speak) and I didn't have the knowledge or indeed patience to fix them :-( . But thanks for every one of your kind words!
Noel: look for Panis Angelicus sung by King's College, Cambridge, on YouTube whenever you have a little time - you're in for a treat :-) . Gheorghe Zamfir is a favourite of mine ... not many people know of his name, though many can point to his "Lonely Shepherd" playing without actually knowing who it was that played on that track, so I'm impressed :-) I'll have to listen to the Simon and Garfunkel song, however - I come from a classical music background, myself, so my knowledge of popular music is a little Swiss-cheese like ... full of holes, haha. Thanks for helping to fill in the gaps :-) and I'm so glad and grateful that you enjoyed my little attempt at arranging this amazing piece :-)

I'm with Tunemonger on the panpipe, though - the abrupt cutoff is odd. I think adding some reverb to it would really help. Then again, just about any flute is going to sound better with reverb. (It's just a matter of knowing how much is too much).
As for Zamfir not being well known - you apparently didn't live through the barrage of '70s commercials...

I will work on the panpipe! I've already done a different arrangement of it because I wasn't too happy with the percussive nature of the piano background - found a better BIAB piano track to use ... so will definitely have a look at the panpipe solo!
As for Zamfir, I'm an eighties child, so ... you're completely spot on in that regard!!! hahahaha :-) Thanks again for listening and for the comments - I now look forward to hear the Zamfir video you posted up! :-)

Thanks so much Stefan and Rob - and sorry for the delay in expressing my gratitude ... had a bit of a temporary health problem here to deal with that has kept me away from all else, recently (it's all sorted now, thankfully).
Beautiful piece. I like the sound of the Pan Flute, but as others have said, its abrupt cut-off was sometimes disconcerting. I know it would be tedious and take some time, but I think you could do some volume automation on that (the Pan Flute) track to drop the volume more gradually for the last part of the affected notes without needing to change anything else with the instrument, mix, or effects. Enjoyed the listen.

Janice & Bud: if you search "Panis Angelicus - King's College, Cambridge", you will find an amazing version of this piece, the one that inspired me to arrange it! Hope you enjoy and thank you ever so much for listening!
