I listened again and said one word-wow.
I am flattered that a man with your experience in music thinks so highly of the one song I have posted here. For me I think the best way to appreciate it is to listen to the classical piece 'O Fortuna', then listen to my piece and realize they are the same song, I just translated it. The difference between what I did and other translations is that I took the time to translate it by poetic meaning and added the whole lyrical intro to give it context. It took years to get that translation right. And the music wasn't much easier, I couldn't just transcribe notes from sheet music, I had to rework a couple things and add a couple things and kind of strip it down to get it where it is. I am not sure if it is my 100% best effort, I know there are things I could have done better, but it was a complete effort and in a way I like that it is only 95% as good as I could get it, makes it more human. Thanks for the review and your appreciation for what I did.
oh, and I went back and listened to it again for the first time in a long time since I finished, and I totally agree that my lyrics were too low and the backup was too high in the mix. Not sure if that means I will go back and rework it, but you were spot on with that advice.
O Fortuna: The gravely old voice is an incredible contrast to the silky instrumental and vocal background. Yet it blends wonderfully.
Thanks so much. It took me a long time to get that right.
