Christmas Cantata backing trax

Since April, I've been working on a complete set of backing trax for my Christmas Cantata. They're almost complete. Of course, Christmas Cantata was available for years in pdf form. And it was performed here and there. But I was hearing that (a) people like a music book in their hand, and (b) not everybody has an orchestra. Strangely, this hadn't really occurred to me. So the solution was simple. Give them a book. (That appeared on Amazon last year.) And give them an orchestra they can download and play. This was done with Steinberg's Cubase, with some help from the Halion Symphonic Orchestra, and some samples from here and there. Have a listen to Lord, our Lord. That's one of the slow sections. But elsewhere it really grooves. Check the end of 'Arise, shine' or some of the other tracks on the Cantata backing trax page.
