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".
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.
Ric's music was outstanding, it played a very important role in a very important television series.
We really enjoyed working with you Ric. The tracks were really beautiful and well prepared. You do a great job of writing and producing.
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.
Hi Ric, Finally had a moment to sit and listen to your composition "Monterey". Beautiful writing and arranging!
"Amazing Grace" Incredible arrangement!
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.
This is the hippest version of "Amazing Grace" I've ever heard. Bravo!
Truly great arrangements today.
Hey Ric, They all sound amazing. You're surely a gifted composer!
HOLY COW!!! Your stuff is AMAZING! LOVE the treatment on “Revelation Song” Great job!
Amazing! The string arrangement is stellar; Claus Ogerman has nothing on you!!!
Ric, what a fantastic chart! You are a flippin genius!!!
Ric, you are the best arranger I have worked with! And I was fortunate to have worked with Hank Mancini, and numerous others.
For the amount of years I have worked with Ric Flauding, I am constantly amazed at the consistently high level of musical excellence and creativity that comes forth from this talented and gifted arranger and orchestrator. Ric continues to demonstrate to the music industry what the true art of arranging and orchestrating truly are.
What a gorgeous piece! Keep writing more great music. I’ve always been impressed with the level of professionalism in your writing
Ric, this is gorgeous orchestra music!
Very cool Ric. Love that "Amazing Grace" chart. As the English say, some very “naughty changes".
Ric, I would buy this arrangement RIGHT NOW. You made me cry. I mean I sat here sobbing. Just an AWESOME arrangement...What a talented man you are.
Beautiful job, Ric! Your orchestration sounds like Debussy would have written it himself.
Just checked out your string arrangement-again blown away, the arrangement is awesome. Wowee!
There is no end to Ric's arranging talents. His arranging for strings is some of the best I have ever heard.
Ric, Incredible arrangements-absolutely gorgeous! You're the Man! Your voicings and orchestral coloring are superb my friend! Great job!
Ric, that is the most beautiful rendition of "Silent Night". You have such beautiful God-given talent.
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, these are great, congratulations! The string parts really feel natural to the song, complementing the style and melody. Great work.
Wow Ric–great string arrangements for "The Invitation" and "Por Amor"-absolutely brilliant work! Where did you learn how to write string arrangements like that???
Ric, I love your "Jesus Wept" we played it during Easter and it really challenged our orchestra musically.
Wow! Beautiful string arranging Ric! Very nice!
This is a GORGEOUS arrangement and orchestration of this beautiful hymn. I simply love your harmonies in this piece they are so different and exciting.
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.
This is really nice. The chord progressions and how you use them are quite impressive. There is freedom in your compositions I wish I could bring into my own writing.
Best arrangement for strings I've ever heard of “Carol of the Bells”.
I am saving the best for last-your music has been premiered now in Vienna, Austria and Gyor, Hungary...they absolutely LOVED your “O Holy Night".
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.
It's my great pleasure and honor to work for you. I have now gotten to hear your excellence as an arranger and realize what a wonderful project this has turned out to be. I loved the choral session.
Ric. It's my joy to sing these beautiful songs. Your arrangements are stunning.
I really really love your charts.
Music sounded great and your orchestrations were really wonderful. Honored to be a part.
(name withheld) has remarked twice how much he likes your writing. Very proud of Nashville sometimes. Yes please move here and make us even better.
Wow! Awesome stuff!!! I wish we can work with you again soon! Such a pleasure.
Wow, what a gorgeous orchestral arrangement. The placement of the parts in contrast with the soloist makes me quite envious. Your compositions are always arranged so well.
Very nice Ric. Beautiful writing! Good job!
Very nice!...but I really wouldn't have expected anything less...from such a talented gentleman.
Holy (blank)!!! You took that and turned it into that gorgeous orchestral piece?
That is absolutely epic!!!
HI Ric, Long time no talk - Love your writing man - always brilliant !! - Best - Oliver
Very nice piece for string orchestra competition.
