I finally managed to finish orchestrating a Byzantine hymn using VSL. What do you all think? Is there something you hear that does not sound right?

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/33556625/Music/Agni_Parthene_Chamber_Strings_16.mp3

I used Chamber Strings, MIR Pro (GrosserSaal) and Miracle.

Thank you!

Well done, I like the sound of the MIR positioning. It could use some polishing in the performance and the overall "organic" quality of the sound, but it is a good start.

The (relatively) high-pitched brass sometimes stick out (at 0:52 for instance).

Enjoyed that btw.

Thank you! I made quite a few changes since I posted this version. Here is this updated one:

Btw, I never included any brass in any version. Will look into it.

 Smile I only used Chamber strings:

6 Violins I
6 Violins II (muted)
4 Violas
3 Cellos
2 Double Bass

Funny you said this because my ear could also pick up some "brass" sound. Will check it later and find out who the culprit is!
