Simplicio, Vito - Always By My Side - Video

Post by Vito Simplicio » Thu May 28, 2009 7:06 pm

This composition is dedicated to my wife, Coral, on our 21st wedding anniversary - May 28, 1988. When we first started dating, she claimed that the relationship wouldn't last 6 months!

After being dumped by two previous wives, I have grown to truly appreciate Coral’s devotion and dedication to our relationship. These qualities have truly brought more meaning to the word “love” for me.

Score soon to follow.

Mi porta ad un tempo quando la vita era più semplice e meno complicata .

I've already downloaded the score and will be giving it a go.

Hello Vito,

I think I would have known this was your music even if it had appeared as an anonymous MP3. It's beautiful!

My best wishes and congratulations to you and to Coral,

V :D :merci:

Thanks Vesuvio. I actually recorded this one in my bathroom. This is the first piece that I've recorded where I did not use any reverb. I'm still not happy with the quality of my recordings but I'm never totally happy with my stuff.

Thanks Az and Michael. I've learned after many years that treating her special on our anniversary rather than giving her an expensive gift, seems to mean more to her.
