    Music is moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness and a gaiety and life to everything. It is the essence of order and leads to all that is good, true and beautiful. -- Plato

    Thumbs up Re: Fanfare for the Common Man

    Francesco Bossi,
    First let me welcome you to the GPO family and forum!
    Now, to rip apart this wonderful rendition of Fanfare for The Common Man.
    Thank you for using proper range of the timpani! Filled my heart with joy to hear the timps sing as the should cleanly and not muddied up in the mix!
    But those horns...how did you ever get them to sound sooooooo powerful! You have done justice to this piece my friend. Keep up the good work! Can't wait to hear more.
    Now we have two Francesco's to worry about.

    Really nice!! How are the legato trumpets/brass done?? I've only played the brass patches a little bit and I can't make legato work. Using the sus pedal turns it into a synth patch. (I've played with the different modes and none seem to work like they would with the string patches).

    Welcome Francesco II.

    This is brilliant...a piece I enjoy but haven't listened to for a time. The timpani, bass drum and cymbals are used to great effect....highly impressive.

    Thanks for sharing the instrumentation with us. It just shows that GPO has what you need..... it's just a matter of having the 'key' to release it.

    I can handle two, as long as they go by Francesco I and Francesco II (they can fight it out amongst themselves who is which number ). This is really good. Gotta love thos GPO brass ensembles.
