I've just had a go at recording this Catalan piece - seems perfect for this time of year.

WOW!!! This is one of my favorite small pieces. I've heard it by Segovia, Bream and a number of others but never as well done as this in terms of what I would like to hear in this composition. Your phrasing is both innovative and exquisite. Tone production is beautiful. VERY nicely done!!

Excellent tone. However, the variances in the underlying pulse (particularly the ending bit) don't work for me at all. Maybe my Holiday Eggnog is sour.....

Haha - thank you for your honesty. I'm not sure I like the ending, either! I tried something different - nothing ventured etc.

I have listened to this a few times now and enjoyed everything about it. The playing, the tone of guitar and the recording quality. It took me a long time to work out that it was a Catalan Christmas carol as it wasn't mentioned on the John Williams recordings I first heard. :bravo:
