    Has anyone discovered the Jingle Bells track that slows down to a halt? Eddy used it as part of his Demo.

    Well, while we're talking music ... (silent night)


    Does ANYONE else know or have heard the Silent Night descant (counter melody) that I learned as a teenager in the '60s?


    I have a lot of fun at Christmas singing and teaching it to people. I will get my friend, a pianist, to lay down a quick track of the melody for you soon ....


    Written as foreground/background:


    F: Silent Night, Holy Night
    B: 'Neath the silent stars a town is sleeping


    F: All is calm, all is bright
    B: Flocks are safe within the fold, away from hunger, want, and cold


    F: Round yon virgin, mother and child,
    B: Si-lent, silent night


    F: Holy infant so tender and mild
    B: Ho-ly, holy night


    F: Sleep in heavenly peace
    B: Sleep in peace, sleep in heavenly peace


    F: Sleep in heavenly peace
    B: In peace


    I may not have the breaks down right. I tried singing both melodies simultaneously but my tongue went twisted. so then i tried to beat out 4 long measures for each line and match the timing.


    -Ed

    the fun is now i HAVE to sequence the counter melody on a separate group of lights ....

    FE,
    You knew it with out knowing it. The Band name is in the Title - Ali a.i.n.
    They appear to be a Persian group that do a number of trance tracks with good beats and sing is a lingo I don't understand.
    They don't appear to hold copyright over their songs, well at least I couldn't find any notices so downloading off the web should be an issue.

    When i first found the song i did try to find the source by looking up that name but i found nothing so i didnt bother looking to much further. I must admit i didnt look very hard though as i got it from my brothers techno mixes which are mainly copyright free.
    Thanks as its great to know where the mix comes from.
