[Base Music] Traditional Winter Holiday Music Pack v1.1

Post by kamnet » 27 Nov 2013 11:46

TRADITIONAL WINTER HOLIDAY MUSIC PACK
Version 1.1
Released November 27, 2013 by Kevin Fields (kamnet)

RELEASE NOTES
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It has taken me nearly four years to assemble this pack, but through great persistence I have assembled, what I believe to be, some of the greatest sequenced MIDI files of traditional winter holiday music. I have taken much time and great care to select these pieces not only for their popularity, but for the unique, polysymphonic sound quality that they were sequenced. It has also taken much time to contact the sequencers of these pieces and obtain permission for their distribution. In some cases, the original sequencers have passed on, and the care for their works have passed on to family members or other loved ones who also share in the passion of these works. This music pack is not only a tribute to some of our most cherished holiday songs as the centuries have gone by, but also to the individuals who took the time to preserve the spirit and memory of the song. MIDI sequencers are a diverse, talented, and caring group of individuals who have dedicated themselves to the task of showing only the best quality of this form of music.

doesn't look like that is happening all that often: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cluj-Napoca#Klimatabelle (it does get rather cold, but also pretty dry during winter)
