I have good news and bad news as far as my review on this.
First, the good news.I have zero Celtic but my wife, being of Irish origins, loves Celtic music...this is no exception.
I love the "flute" on this...subtle but reminds me of Titanic. Your music is always very good and this certainly ranks up there. You have many songs and I know I have not heard them all. But this is likely in my top 3 of your songs.
Now for the bad news.
I am out of 6's to award and so it is with much sadness that I must give you a 5. Still I know you are in no shortage of 6's!!! I am so jealous.
One thing that does annoy me about reviews on this site is that it very clear that a 6 is exceptional, 5 excellent, 4 Good and so forth.
And yet it appears the majority of reviewers give out 5's like candy which dilutes the value of a 5 and even a 6. In reality there are far more 4's deserved than 5's. That's not to say when a reviewer awards a low mark that he/she should be mean spirited about it. They should be offered honesty and suggestions on how to improve.
But when I listen to your music for example, much of your work should get 7's or 8's. A 5 should only be awarded when there are no real changes needed.
Sorry for venting, but I tire of boiler plate reviews that a couple on this site give over and over and over. I would rather that they simply do not waste any one's time.
Meanwhile, I will enjoy an extremely talented artist like yourself who posts some of the very best music on this site.
Such a beautiful melodic joining of two souls from the first encounter onward is the journey into uncharted waters. Your music captures it all --the fearful excitement, the thrill, the passion....
I liked the reverb/delay in the first part as it seems to show the space between them. Then it becomes warmer and safer.
You played this beautifully, with emotion and feeling that only comes from having been there yourself.
If anything it is too short...
Very, very nice!
I am no expert on the Tudor period and its instruments; however, you captured the plodding, painful and monotonous journey to her end.
I love that you let your imagination take you and us to places near and far way, geographically but also in time.
nice job as always!
As you well know I am an avid Beatles fan as so your description drew me into the music and melody. I closed my eyes and tried to imagine John singing this, even though Paul sang Yesterday.
I love this...to be honest I did l listen to it several times working to get beyond the piano and arpeggios. That certainly was not anything you did wrong, but it was melding the melody, pure and simple, into the straight forward instrumentation as was done with Yesterday.
I may, if you don't mind, try to do something with this but in my way with guitar and create lyrics. I am not really a singer but may give it a go if you don't mind.
Do you have any suggestions for lyrics? If not, and if you are okay with me trying something, I will share with you what I am doing.
But this is very beautiful and I can hear elements that capture a ballad that The Beatles might have done. It flowed nicely with changes that allow for pauses and thoughtful touches.
Great performance as always!
I love how you started this with what sounds somewhat like an acoustic rhythm, then you gradually bring in the strings. Your understated and elegant melody is sad and rings of regret and lost love.
And so it is appropriately named. It has a love song quality and is not really sad nor happy. It is like an empty room filled only with the dust covered pictures of days gone by.Very very beautiful composition.
Can't believe and understand how you can compose the way you do. And perform it all so masterfully. It's not just the execution, it's the emotion, the feeling.
It's simply you giving yourself over to the music, like being possessed....at least that's how your music makes me feel. I wish I had that gift.
Thanks for the wonderful contribution of this and your other songs!
this is so heartbreaking...and so heartfelt.
I liked the organ sound...you sang it beautifully.
The lyrics were so perfect, communicating the hurt, hopelessness...
Reminds me of my song...Sometimes Love is Not Enough!
Such sweet agony! That's what love can be!
I'm sure you have much of your music played on radio and elsewhere.
This is freestyle...it weaves and winds itself along and takes me with it.
Your playing and nuance, the way your emotion is captured in your playing...
This is so beautiful.
Kerri, you are so gifted!
This is such an intimate, lonely story in music. It is so reflective of how loneliness feels...not empty like you may think but surrounded by our own thoughts, our own possessions that we find some comfort in.
In this case the ballerina helped you escape by taking you on to a musical journey that led you to become part of music.
Congrats on another mesmerizing piece.
How did the play go? I'm sure everyone loved this. This has a nice theatrical, and festive feel to it.
You picked the right instrument sounds. It flows with an undercurrent of happiness, muted but suspenseful as if driving a plot.
