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?

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.
