Hi Keith. Yes Ebb tide was nice and relaxing. I imagined me being on Seaburn or Roker beach listening to the sea. Sounds were good. John
Enjoyed Whispering couldn't picture it until the tune started and tried to sing along. Nice style and sounds. John

This next song was played in vaudeville style by The New Vaudeville band back in 1966. It has been covered by Sinatra and Brian will probably know that The Shadows did their own twangy guitar version. More interestingly it was performed just four days ago by the Winchester Cathedral Choir at a gala concert in the cathedral to raise money for the cathedral. So wide ranging orchestrations but I have just stuck to Hammond organ for my rendition of "Winchester Cathedral."

Hi Keith,

Just back from Newcastle :roll: I have never seen as many roadworks as what there are on the A167 into Newcastle
Anyway that was a good version of that song and I did like the Hammond organ you used, well played and put together.
Will try and post one more tune tomorrow if I can muster the energy after my shopping trip, and by the way Windows in
Central arcade are rubbish for Keyboards very poor selection.

Hi Keith. A good organ sound which matched the style. Enjoyed. Brian must be after another keyboard for the loft. John

My next song is "Try To Remember" which was the opening song of a musical called "The Fantasticks. As I understand it it was a very basic production so think piano and male vocalist. Later the song was recorded by Perry Como, Andy Williams, Roy Orbison and Liza Minnelli to name just a few. I however am taking the basic version as the original so my version is pretty much strings so as to be totally different.

Hi Keith,

That was a great sounding piece, the melody with the strings worked perfectly and it was a real pleasure to listen to.
Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the kind comments.

I opened my music index at the letter "V" and there was Vilia from the Franz Lehar operetta "The Merry Widow." Vilia is sung by tenors the world over so think vocals and pit orchestras. Another famous piece from the show is the "Merry Widow Waltz" which features strings. This is a BOGOFF entry as I start you with the waltz and follow with Vilia. Instrumentation is largely guitar and pad with just a few strings. A waltz has to be a waltz but I have given Vilia a disco type beat.

Hi Keith,

Some more really nice voices you put together and used on that piece which you played well and it sounded really good.
