I love it. Same idea, only expansive like the plains when it gets going. I like all the additions, the extra Latin vocals, the unison with Deb, the extra chants, and I really like how you turn Anchor’s last line into the whisper of a ghost.

Thanks so much for this. I meant it to be powerful, shared, strong, anthemic, which thanks to you it now finally is. It is like I am finally hearing it how it was in my head. :)

If it makes it easier on you, I can put everything up as stems, or at the very least, upload it without any post-mix treatment. I can hear you’re having to fight the compression in my mastering a little here.

The line “Agnus Dei, Qui tolis pecata mundi” is of course found in pie iesus, but is also found as part of the Commons of the Gregorian chant in the old Tridentine (latin) liturgy, which is where I got the idea of repeating it over and over, like a mantra.

i’m happy you liked it. i learned that re-rubs are a little more nerve-wracking than even remixes (at least this one was for me). i wanted to respect all of your original elements, and it was challenging without having access to the stems. so, yes, i would love to have them! i could turn up your vocal and the guitar separately from the drums or deb…and then mix those in separately. when i was mixing, i started thinking in those terms.

when i first heard this piece, the vision and emotional struck me squarely. i imagine this song in my mind far beyond my abilities to bring to fruition. i have actually been utterly frustrated, as I’m unable to find my way to that sound in my head on this mix - i think i would need a full orchestra and the Mormon Tabernacle choir to do so (and John Jones or Sean Halley to mix).

I’ve only been to mass on Christmas and Easter, but wish I had more knowledge. My exposure to Latin has come only through studying opera in high school and college.

What a beautiful mantra. Thank you for creating something that inspired me so truly.

Its very close to how it should be. Doesn’t need the entire Mormon Tabernacle choir… just a few very earnest voices, which it got.

I’ll try and put the stems up this AM.

Impressive. Lots of layers and sounds to well navigate and rub.

Wow- powerful piece. It was wonderful to read your intro as well. Fun to picture all the drumming… all the pieces coming together.

This is gorgeous Emily. Gogeous. The addition of your voice adds another layer of celestial delight.

This melange’ works very well. The effect is an intoxicating blend of different grains, baked into a very nice bread.
