OCR02057 - Xenogears 'Hymn of Aveh'

Recommended Posts

Meh...

...that's what I would say if I were a total d-bag. ;) In actuality, I think this is a lovely arrangement and a wonderful performance. Kate's a talented gal! Celtic music always hits a soft spot with me--and Kate loves to poke at that spot. Always a treat to hear her work!

Finally it is added here, I ripped this off youtube long ago. It should have been part of Xenogears: Human + Gear album.

Amazing job, Kate!

PS: Can we have Kate's Cleyra Settlement released already? :-P

Very nice! Gave me shivers as well. Starts off very slow but gets this nice celtic feel and rhythm to it. OCR needs more of this!

Really great, kate.

I really like the vocal "yayeeeeees" and "yaaaaaahs" ... I love that kind of stuff.

The viola/violin? playing is passionate too. Awesome work.

Yup, you definitely deserve it. A fine way to celebrate being on top of the world: mix post + compliment from the composer would make ANY remixer happy! Nice job!

Even if it isn't pristine production, not only does the arrangement shine enough to make that a non-issue, but nearly all the instruments being live recorded really adds passion and a full "human" element to the song. Vocals and performance are both outstanding. The language is stunning.

kate the great indeed.

one of the rare occasions I love a remix without ever hearing the source

in fact, this remix is so good I don't even WANT to listen to the source for fear of being dissapointed

excellent work kate please keep it up

Totally brilliant. I've always thought this was your best arrangement out of all the ones you have on Youtube - the instrumentals are fantastic and compliment the vocals perfectly. I don't really know how else to describe it, but it's a joy to see this come up on the front page and get even more attention that it deserves.

Woah, Kate, is that you playing violin!? Wow, it wasn't enough that you can sing your face off-- you play like a million bucks too!

Great work, and congrats on the Yasunori Mitsuda kudos. That's really awesome :D
