I'm really enjoying these songs! I am downloading them to burn to CD when December gets here. Keep up the good work all!

Btw, how hard is it to burn a CD from a folder I've saved on my desktop?

In Windows XP if you're in a music folder there's a list of tasks on the left. One of the tasks you can choose is to burn the songs in the folder to a disc. In Windows Vista you have a burn button in the upper part of the folder. You do have to have a burner.

Would anyone like to contribute artwork (photographic, freehand or graphic design) so we can make CD covers?

Ah, I see it now, thanks Connie!

Those are really nice guys ...

Blackhawk: I think Generations are fast becoming one of my favorite whistles. You did an especially nice job on 'Noel' - I may try it on my red-top just to compare how they sound. Was the slapback effect added, or is that the room you were in? I like it, regardless.

Keith - smooth as ever. That's a great sounding whistle and the song was very well done. I especially liked the second pass.

Kudos to both!!! Image

It was added, jrc, with the Sound Program on Windows XP. I've tried to figure out how to make Audacity do the same thing, with no luck so far. Anyhoo, thank you for the kind words. I loved your playing, too, as I always do. :)

I've enjoyed each version! They are all unique in their own right.

Use a click-track and I'll record an accompaniment.

Now you're scaring me...but it sounds like fun. I'll start working on it.

Beautiful. There really have been a number of good tunes so far. Keep them coming.

Wow! What's not to like?

Blackhawk - Kudos for your two nice tunes! I like hearing your mix of legato and staccato in some of your phrases. Sometimes I don't quite know what to do with a note that I can't make smooth enough to suit me, and yet I never think to go ahead and make it pop like that. I'm going to have to remember that idea...

khl - As I said in the give-away thread -- very pretty! The whistle, the playing, the ornamentation, the whole package.

Adrian - I actually laughed for the joy of your bluesy/jazzy version of this song. Amazing stuff!

Walden - FUN FUN FUN! I like your drum. And the piping is nice, too. :)

Susan - I didn't know this song, but it definitely conjured up images of quiet evenings watching the lights on the tree. So peaceful.

I think I may be inspired to try to find time to do another tune...

I really like this ... any chance of getting the chart for it? Susan did a great job, and the tune is really interesting. I like the Dream Flute!

Good stuff here too Walden ... it's crazy you can do all that in one take with a drum and a 3-hole pipe. Very cool!

I just uploaded 'Patapan' a French 17th cent. carol. Here are the words with an English translation at the bottom. Note mention of whistles and flutes.

Edited to say: SUSAN played this tune, I merely followed orders and uploaded it in her absence.

Patapan

Guillô, prends ton tambourin,
Toi, prends ta flûte, Robin
Au son de ces instruments
Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan
Au son de ces instruments
Je dirai Noël, gaiement.

C'était la mode autrefois
De louer le Roi des rois
Au son de ces instruments
Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan
Au son de ces instruments
Il nous en faut faire autant.

L'homme et Dieu sont plus d'accord
Que la flûte et le tambour
Au son de ces instruments
Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan
Au son de ces instruments
Chantons, dansons, sautons-en!

Bernard de la Monnoye (1641-1728)
Old Burgundy dialect


Willie, take your little drum
Robin, take your flute and come
When we hear the tune you play
Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan
When we hear the tune you play
How can anyone be glum?

When the men of olden days
Gave the King of Kings their praise
They had pipes on which to play
Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan
They had drums on which to play
Full of joy on Christmas Day

God and man this day become
Joined as one with flute and drum
Let the happy tune play on
Tu-re-lu-re-lu, pat-a-pat-a-pan
Flute and drum play together
As we sing on Christmas day
