Thanks Speck !
I thought the best way to support ccmixter is to upload material !
Listening to it this morning, I think the vocal comes in too early. I used a flanger on the cello to get that treacly sound, and on the second vocal my latest trick : routing it to an octave pitch shifter, which feeds in gradually and which is in turn routed to a second octave shifter, which kicks in a little later.
Having spent half an hour and more trying to clean the vocal, ( tho’ the esses defeated me ),I´ll upload the stems this evening.

If you are having trouble removing sibilants and plosives try the old engineering trick of cutting and moving the offending part onto a seperate track but copy the plugins from the original track. Then use a gain plugin to reduce the new tracks audio level. Another trick that sometimes works is to add a cymbal or high hat at the offending part. I generally use Melodyne’s sibilant tool to remove offending sounds

Hi , thank you very much ! That is very useful. I had looked at Melodyne before, but had only seen the expensive full version, I see now there’s a cheaper essentials version, so I may go for that. But first off, I will try your “old engineering trick.” I like technology, but working out how to do things yourself gives more understanding.
And the cymbal idea — very sneaky !
Best, Martin
