New Videos

I’ve posted several new videos on YouTube. You can view all of them  at My YouTube Channel

Here’s a look at a few of them.

First, another music video with fractal art I created. I have some rendered 3-d artwork and fractal images. The background music is a new piece “How Perfect Love Is” from our website (http://jamesgilbertmusic.com).

The next one I’ll feature here is one of several similar videos that illustrates the various sheet music offerings available at the website. This one features Handbell and Handchime music. It shows samples from the website along with sample recordings.

In addition to the Handbell video, there are videos featuring our Orchestra & Instrumental Ensemble titles; Choral titles and Brass selections. I plan to add more videos with our other categories.

What Wondrous Love Is This

I’ve uploaded a new video to YouTube. This is a recording of the piece What Wondrous Love Is This that I arranged for orchestra. The hymn tune is from the early 1800’s in Appalachia and is found in Southern Harmony, 1835. It is still used today in many churches and instrumental versions, like this, are also used in secular schools for its historical aspect.

This recording is done via software instruments (although most of you would have thought they were real if I hadn’t said anything). I used instruments from the Native Instruments Kontakt 5 factory library as well as Session Strings Pro. I layered the string sounds so each instrument in the string section had 3 to 5 different instruments. They were mixed together to get the final sound. For the reverb I used two instances of Guitar Rig 5, one for the strings and their reverb and all other instruments.

The orchestra sheet music is available for purchase at my website. The instrumentation is for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, French Horn, Trumpet, Trombone, Triangle, Violins, Violas, Cellos, Double Bass and Guitar (or Harp). See the catalog description for details about substitute instruments and keyboard reductions.

If you have any questions or comments, you can leave them on the YouTube page or here.
