Sounds great
The backing strings are a nice touch. I've always thought that 'sleeves melody was beautiful, and it's great the way you branch out from it. Your playing still amazes me.

Great arrangement!
You can always tell when someone loves a song that they play - it can't
help but come out in the sound. I absolutely love the layers you built
into this piece.

Great arrangement!
Thanks so much notso, how precious you are for coming by so much!

This was fun when Jam pack 4 started to materialize in the orchestration. Mixing
up with violins, oboe, cello and french horn I felt made it more interested than if
I stuck with just violins and cello.

Thanks

always great guitar
Great guitar playing as usual and I particularly liked the way you worked
the melody. The orchestral backing was nice at times but seemed a bit
distracting at others. It's a lovely piece of music that brings some fond
memories to mind.

Awesome, Bill.
Your rendition is one of the best I've heard.

I'm feeling the Christmas Spirit, now. And that's what it's all about, isn't it?

Thanks for posting.

Good Stuff
You have a little Christmas collection started with the last couple songs
Bill :) I love this stuff as usual, and as many said, the strings really added
a lot to this piece.

Bill....
that guitar of yours is an extension of your soul. I feel it. The world would
be a better place if everyone could just stop for a moment and hear you
play. Another fantastic piece by the acoustic master here at MacJams.

Fantastic!
This is one of my favorite Christmas songs. It's what it's all about.

Your guitar picking is great as usual. I think you have my favorite
acoustic tone on Macjams. It always sounds so crisp and natural.
This song almost made me tear up it was so beautiful.

Respect!
Not sure what happened then - sent a comment and it disappeared
into cyberspace! In case it doesn't magically appear:

Bill, this is beautiful! You have reworked a standard and made it a real
antidote to all the dark stuff happening in the world at the moment.
Betsy sounds better and better with each new song. This was relaxed
and relaxing - clean and wholesome - open and joyous. We need
more of this in the world.
Respect (and seasons greetings to you and yours)!. Neil

Gorgeous
This is so lovely, Bill. Your artistry, as always, gives vibrant life to each
song you play. Your arrangement is really nice on this one. The guitar
is center stage with a soft cushion of strings. Just a beautiful rendition
of this favorite Christmas song.

I liked the orchestration.
Of course tiler's guitar can stand on its own any day, but I think the backing is sweet and not intrusive at all. A gorgeous arrangement.

I love your rendition of this classical Christmas hymn. I've added it to my
