Pipe organ, violin and viola - all recorded! :dance:

can't wait to hear the violin and viola! :hamburger:
(pipe organ too, but i don't know much about organs in general. :( )

What's still left to be done?
Workings of man crying out from the fires set aflame
By his blindness to see that the warmth of his being
Is promised for his seeing, his reaching so clearly

vocals today and some later this week / one bass track / a little guitar / mxing and mastering - done :D
As for the pipe organ - it just sounds big and real. We use the sound alot - (ex. Chronos Deliverer). Using a real pipe organ in a big room makes a big difference. The intrument costs around $500,000.00!

Rick Wakeman, along with other Yes men, was on the radio interview show Rockline back in '91 sometime. A caller had a question along the lines of, is touring today easier than it was back in the 70s? Rick's reply included a reference to a pipe organ that the band took on tour with them, which "the crew tried to lose every night." :o

Chronos Deliverer was the first Glass Hammer song I listened to, when I downloaded it from gh.com. It had been several years since one single song, on first listen, affected me so deeply. It's a fantastic composition.
