This piece is on the Noel Project CD, 'Splendor Bright'
with other musicians works from MacJams, Mystified, Tom Atwood, Johannes Avinder (Cori Ander),
Revolving Doris and of course MidiOrleans. It is available on iTunes.
Since the CD, this piece has been remastered from GarageBand into Logic Studio.

Concerto grosso in G minor, op.6 no. 8, by Arcangelo Corelli, known commonly as his Christmas Concerto, was commissioned by Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni and published posthumously in 1714 as part of his twelve concerti grossi, op.6. The concerto bears the inscription Fatto per la notte di Natale or "Made for the night of Christmas". It was composed around 1690, since there is a record of Corelli having that year performed a Christmas concerto for the enjoyment of his then-new patron. The concerto is scored for an ensemble consisting of two concertino violins and cello, ripieno strings and continuo. The work is structured as a concerto da chiesa, in this case expanded from a typical four movement structure to five or six.

and awesome performance from all of you involved. The baroque era was the most wonderful time for music. I often wish I were alive at that time to truly appreciate this music 'live', for the first time. Very well done! BRAVO!!! (takes off hat and bows deeply). Happy holidays to you as well!

Hey, I have that CD! :-)
Always loved this, your attention to detail on the strings is awesome, sounds like a real recording in a small church. Great balance on the instruments, excellent dynamics... sigh. You are a master at arranging, mixing, and recording, Scotty. Thank you for posting this for others (who don't have the CD) to appreciate!

I could swear-
this is a real string ensemble! There were a couple of 'glimpses' of software sound, but only because you shared that information with us. All of the superlatives have been used already. I'll just add that you touched my heart with this music. It is here at just the right time for me.

Sumptuous Orchestra...
This is such a pleasant rendering of the original. You are reconstructed the orchestration with care and I believe the mix is just about right, too. It is such a pleasure to hear this this evening and to know that you are producing classics in such a refined and fine manner.
