I kind of agree, however:

She's not a very expressive singer by nature. And for this project 
(which this song is part of) I decided to see what comes natural (same 
goes for compositions, arrangements, other performers, etc), and later 
see it the whole needs something different at spots. Besides for this 
particular song I wanted a quite "un-dynamic" feel, which also means 
that I really tried keeping the arrangement very dynamically static. 
Just enough development in the music to keep the listener from being too 
bored, but no crescendos, or climaxes or such. Just a simple statement 
of the mood.

Still I will definitely keep this in mind when reworking it. Thanks for 
your thoughts!

"one in every other bar", the one leading into sections or the one on

The lyrics are Danish. I wouldn't want to bug the list with it, 
considered it's religious nature. I could translate it and send it to 
you off-list if you're interested...

peace, love & harmony
