heh :)


After an initial run through, I don't believe I'll ever be able to make this one sound even half as nice as the original. Much of the beauty comes from the timbre of the clarinet.

I'll try it on some of the low tuned harps and see if there's any improvement.

Keith, I do hope you will share your version with us!
