No need to listen to today’s other uploads - this one is the Catch of the Day!

You didn’t promise too much, Ben. Excellent arrangement!

OK - when did Nightwish put out a new album? :) This is awesome goth metal, with the interplay between guitars, organ, and arp strings pitch perfect. :)

Hey, Benjamin! Do you work as composer on Broadway ? It’s a stage-ready, fantastic production!

Masterpiece! If this was playing at my local church, I would definitely visit the mass more often :)

Uff. Extremely exciting here.
I agree, the sound of the organ conveys a feeling very close to the metal. Wonderful your lunatic brain.

This is very clever.
Jacinda’s vocals work so well.
Her neo-classical voice matches perfectly with the way the band ebbs and flows around her goth like angst.
Best I’ve heard for a long time!

About time a heavy tune was an Ed Pick! Definitely Nighwishish lol. I am convinced Ben is really 3 people!

Brilliant stuff. I’m extremely impressed. Bach is my favorite composer, bar none. There is a connection between his music and metal. I’ve noticed it before. The mix is excellent as well as the overall mood. Bloody well done!

Oh yes, this is bloody brilliant. It’s pretty obvious that you are a very talented man (if that wasn’t already clear) by pulling this off. I for one welcome this more heavy stuff.

Wow - Metal ist sonst nicht so meine Sache, aber großartig in dieser Kombination!

It seems that the odd vocals by jacinda finally found a proper companion! Bach organ + metal is brilliant, neither of them is trivial and this is definitely good music and original. Thanks for the how-I-did-it and for giving the stems of this little gem.

Holy moly I love this!!! I love those nasty guitars and the gorgeous classical instrumentation…I like Nightwish a lot and this is somewhat reminiscent but definitely it’s own animal. Thank you so much for this extraordinary remix.
Thanks, Jacinda. Nice to hear that you like it. :-)
In the tradition of baroque music a song has to end on the root major (minor keys counted as imperfect, so they needed to resolve to major on the last chord). In that point of view there is no need for an interpretation…
But of course later in the Romanticism it was a stylistic device. There are nice examples in the “Winterreise” of Franz Schubert where the music differs from the lyrics.
So you can choose if the ending on the root major encourages interpretations or not… ;-)

Outstanding classic rock!

Superb arrangement and execution. Kate Bush has a new album out soon, and this is like a sneak preview.
Knowing Jacinda I think this suits her very well.
