With the winter holidays in our mind and spirit a few dedicated songs to the event would be just the right thing now – so give your iTunes playlist some winter flavor and waste not a penny while doing it with almost 20 classic holiday recordings offered as free download from the Garritan music community.
The Garritan Community Christmas album includes tunes from Oh Holy Night to Auld Lang Syne. How this tunes got to be recorded we say is amazing:
A community of musicians from all over the world met on the Garritan community forum and agreed to submit their own recordings of holiday music, to be freely distributed. Each of these orchestral recordings were made not with large live orchestras in vast recording studios at huge expense, but rather were created by a single person working on their own desktop or laptop computer. What they have in common is the use of Garritan libraries representing software musical instruments based on samples of real instruments.
