Nice take on a classic. Vocals are excellent, and the fiddle sounds great without getting in the way.

I like the way the mandolin gently enters in as the song builds. Nice piano work as well!

Cool ending. smile

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

Hi Firesong

Pretty composition of circumstance. Nice distribution between your voice and the playing of the violin. I must say that you really have a pretty voice that you know how to highlight. The musical construction is impeccable. I enjoyed it very much.

Kindly regard

Dan, very nice job. I talked with a Nashville producer once who was in the middle of a Christmas album project. He was frustrated and complaining about how difficult it was to bring a new sound to an old Christmas Carol. I never did listen to the completed project, but I'm sure he would be glad if it came out half as good as this one did. Great job, as has been mentioned, you made it your own. Merry Christmas my friend.

What can I add to the comments that hasn't already been said?

Nicely done.

Things I like:. The mix is good. Vocals are classic. Love how it not only builds as it goes along but the key modulations are perfectly placed. Loved how you adapted and arranged the old classic Christmas hymn into something fresh and exciting.

This was a real treat.


My only nit, and it's a small one.... On your vocals I would have reduced the reverb a bit and bumped up the volume ever so slightly. Doing so would put the vocal a bit more up front and intimate for the listener.

Man I really enjoyed your song.

You can make excuses or you can make progress but not both.

The magic you are looking for is in the work you are avoiding.

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.
