This track is from a friend of mine that is a very amazing composer. He has worked with the London Symphony and I recommend him for "The Passion".

Dave Mustaine: Recording Artist (Metallica/Megadeth) (re: "Jesus Wept")

Ric Flauding did some exceptional orchestration work for music I had composed by ear. He was able to “take down” the audio I provided and break out parts for use by a conventional orchestra. Because of his competency, attention to detail and deadline, I would highly recommend his services.

Fred Meggs: Composer (ABC Family Television/CBN "First Landing" television show)

Ric's music was outstanding, it played a very important role in a very important television series.

Film Advisory Board (Hollywood): Ric received an award for his scoring

We really enjoyed working with you Ric. The tracks were really beautiful and well prepared. You do a great job of writing and producing.

David Angell: Violinist-Contractor ("Nashville Recording Orchestra")

Well Ric! You are the man, what a fantastic arrangement of such a beloved hymn. I would love to record an album of great hymns in this style of arrangement.

Jeffrey Wells: Vocalist (Metropolitan Opera)

Hi Ric, Finally had a moment to sit and listen to your composition "Monterey". Beautiful writing and arranging!

Russell Ferrante: Pianist-Recording Artist (Yellowjackets)

"Amazing Grace" Incredible arrangement!

Wayne Bergeron: Trumpet Recording Artist (Gordon Goodwin Band)

Hi Ric This is excellent! One of the best arrangements I've heard and you are to be commended. Also, this would be nice to include on our GPO demo page.

Gary Garritan: Garritan Sample Libraries

This is the hippest version of "Amazing Grace" I've ever heard. Bravo!

David Angell: Violinist-Contractor ("Nashville Recording Orchestra")

Truly great arrangements today.

Kent Hooper: Engineer-Producer (Ocean Way Studios/Abbey Road)

Hey Ric, They all sound amazing. You're surely a gifted composer!

Hi, Ric. I liked this a lot. You have a lot of good ideas and you’ve filled out the piece very nicely! I tend to over-write when I orchestrate; you have a good balance and are more willing to let things “get small” now and then with good effect.

Wow I gotta tell you "Monterey" was absolutely out of this world! What an amazing piece. Lisa came in when I was listening and was totally mesmerized by the melody and amazing orchestration/arrangement. Great job! With your permission, I'd like to show them to my friend at Warner Brothers, Is that cool?

Ric! what an introduction of yourself... this is first-chair work in all regards -- from the gorgeous, subtle orchestration of it to the superb cinematic rendering. This is work of not merely skill but also great beauty, Ric, in which I took great pleasure.

"Jesus Wept": Cinematic is correct. Long sweeping brushes of lush sounds penetrate the soul. "The First Noel": Wow, Christmas can't get here fast enough! A beautiful production and interpretation."Christmas Coronation (We Three Kings)": It creates renewal and casts a day's burden aside by the humble and cheerful sounds created.

I have just checked out your video. It is very informative. You have made many good points throughout . In 12 minutes, you have said more than many composition teachers could say in 12 days. Like your strings, your video sets a good foundation for future music writers. Bravo.

WOW - Doxology is one of my favorites! This would be a hit for Easter or a special service. I could see an advanced high school collegiate, or pro group playing this arrangement. It reminds me of some of the works done by fiddler Mark O’Connor.

Ric, sounds great. I must say, whoever has the opportunity to listen to our recording is going to be treated to a festival of musical styles and orchestrations. It is very moving for me to listen to the songs like this, all at the same time. You have done a wonderful job, and I am truly grateful. Thank you.
