  4. I have been having our old 16mm home movies from 30-40 years ago converted to digital as a gift for my mom. Sadly, there is no audio as the old film cameras didn’t have that. I used Elegy over the footage of a first birthday and it was perfect. Poignant and sweet with the tinkling notes, but also happy. Thank you so much for your willingness to share!!!

  5. Thanx a lot….these compositions are great…I was looking for it…this will surely help me to lose my stress n will bring finest sleep…evey night…thnx again :)
