That’s interesting the time sig is written like that. You all make it flow perfectly. Instead of 4/4 + 6/4, the way I count it in my head is as straight 5 during the verses (with the last measure of each verse pair shortened to 3). So instead of 4 + 2 + 4, I feel 3 + 2 + 3 + 2. The same number of beats, just a different grouping. Then for the part where the piano comes in for the interlude after the first two verses, I count as 4 measures of 3. It works for me. I love the drums, it makes it feel totally natural and I think that might be where I picked up the 3 + 2 feel. But again, the cool thing is that you all make it flow so well, I don’t have to count.
An yes, the accordion is awesome! It’s like a mini-bagpipe drone. The vocals are great. I also love how with the composition and mixing you roll right into “Be Thou my Vision.” You (and everyone on the track) did do a great job of not overplaying and it was noted when I was talking about the album to a friend. I think the way I described it was “tastefully understated.” The whole album is great, but the back to back to back tracks How Deep the Father’s Love, Be Thou my Vision and Old Rugged Cross seem like they just couldn’t be any better. It’s a subjective thing, but those three tracks flow together perfect for me. The arrangement on all three is just stellar. “Be Thou my Vision” is very innovative, but true to the traditional tune. Great job!
