Your well-known production skill is manifested here in the orchestra arrangement and sounds. I guess you don’t have a real orchestra at your foot so I’m talking of sampled instruments: I have them as well but I wouldn’t know what to do with them. Writing for a complete orchestra needs some skill and music knowledge, and you show you’ve learned this lesson very well.
On the backside, I would have taken a different approach to the voice reverb, which is dry and roomy while violins are in a concert hall.
Glad to hear from you back again
Ciao

Thanks for your feedback Francesco! About skills: yes, I had some education in this field, but still most of what I do is all about trial and error. There’s still a lot to learn…
About the placement of the vocal in relation to the orchestra: I get your point. My aim was to stick to a rather close sound. However, the app I use for the orchestral sounds only provides me with ‘wide’ sounds instead of close mic sounds. But still: I’m happy with the overall sound and feeling. Apart from that: I love dry vocals ;-)
By the way: Glad to be back! If I had the time.. well, you know…

Splendid orchestral arrangement. It takes some talent to do this and you are obviously in possession of such talent.

I’m very satisfied with the result, but ‘brilliant’…? Thanks Zapac!

I actually very much like the vocal dryness - it makes Emily more present and centred which works really well for me with the dynamics of the strings.

But that’s not what I wanted to say. I wanted to say that this is absolutely stunning. It’s an incredibly good match for Emily’s vocals - very respectful, very sensitive.

Terrific, terrific work.

About the vocal dryness: I agree :-)

Missed this one. Wow, the organ is an unusual choice for this song, but it has character. Lots of it!

Thanks Robin. I couldn’t find the organ I was looking for: a harmonium or a small churchorgan.
But this soft Hammond emulation also works out fine indeed.
