So many wonderful performances!!!

Monica ~ Such a pensive and intense arrangement. You played the music with such patience, sensitivity, and conviction, so very brilliantly! Thank you.

Michael Taylor ~ What an accomplishment to be able to play like that in a year's time! As well, you took on some Brahms. O Holy Night was great. I look forward to more.

Ben ~ So very enjoyable - wow. Your fine playing, accompanying the fine and captivating images of our Universe was fantastic. Superbly done.

Bill ~ Tyler's introduction set the stage for magic. You rendition was very special. Your timing and intonation is great, you really connect with the music and project it out marvelously.

I'm enjoying all the performances. They are all tremendous. Work is pretty hectic for me this time of year, so I don't think I'll get anything recorded. If it's not too off topic (there is piano accompaniment - not me, though), I would like to post this song from my son's school Christmas Pageant. The girls who sang the parts of the angel and Mary are 12 years old. The choir ranges in age from 8-12.

Gentle Mary

@Dennis.....very good good performance. Congrats to the performers! Obviously, that isn't a public school! Are you the piano player?

No, Michael, it's not a public school. The piano player is the school's vocal music instructor. They have a vocal music instructor and a band instructor. You haven't lived until you've listened to an elementary school brass band play Stars and Stripes Forever. I know they were doing their best, but I was nearly in tears from stifling laughs at last year's graduation/awards ceremony.

Hi, here's my first go at recording the Bach Adagio after Marcello. Not finished yet, but getting there...

Happy holidays.

PS: I will get the recitals fully moved soon - honest...

LaValse - I was not familiar with this piece but enjoyed listening to it very much. A very good performance.

Thanks Bill. It was originally an oboe concerto by A Marcello. JS Bach transcribed in for inclusion in BWV 974. What I played is the Adagio from that. Here's a lovely cello version:-

Glen - I almost missed your Christmas music in your sig.
"What Child is This" and "Christmas Time is Here" got me all warm and fuzzy. Very nice smooth interpretations. My favorite is "O Tannenbaum" - loved the improv!

LaValse - Oh, the adagio is wonderful and wonderfully played! I really enjoyed hearing this, too. Maybe it's the time of year, but it is evocative of winter. I had images of a horse drawn sleigh going through my head while I listened.

Here is my contribution: a nice piece from Sinding.

I imagine white mountains somewhere in Finland or Norway with this music smile

Nice contributions! Thanks for posting.

BillM, do you also have recordings with a "neutral" sound (without these filters on your voice)? I think that would sound even better

Michael, nice job!

Elssa , great sound for a cozy christmas evening in front of the fireplace

Monica, I see you're also into the white christmas! Excellent job, nice depiction of the silence of the places in your pictures. "Getting the quiet, dark mood across is harder." - it came through very well (pictures helped also wink ).

Be Piano, nice, but these are all supernova remains, neutron stars and black hole images right? I was expecting a spectacle smile

Mr Super Hunky, nice full sounds!
