    Hey guys behold, I have a new piece to show here

    Here it is...it's a multi-movement symphonic work I'm doing called "Tragic Hero". This is only the first movement.

    Tell me what you think okay? I don't think it's my best, it's personally
    my least favorite movement, but oh well.

    Tragic Hero - I. Simple And Humble Beginnings of Life

    I want to also add that I am going to release the second movement soon. I think it's better. It's called "The Introduction to the Rumor". I'm not really sure where I get the titles from, but the piece kind of tells a story, I guess.

    It's a WMA so Media Player should be able to handle it. I don't really care for MP3's that much so that's why it's WMA.

    Another excellent and unique work!

    The composition itself with its interweaving lines and the arrangement is first rate.

    I can't wait to hear the second movement soon. "The Introduction to the Rumor"- great title

    You keep outdoing yourself Christopher. With works like you've been doing, you have a bright career ahead of you.

    Thanks for posting this piece.

    Christopher, this is beautiful work, once again. I agree with Gary on your future; but not solely for the quality of the work -- you also have a voice and style that are uniquely and clearly your own.

    I will follow this with interest!

    Beautiful piece. Very moving. Also, your sequencing captures the "spirit" of your composition. . .

    Very well done. I will also be looking forward to hearing more of your works.

    Seems quite cinematic to me. I get the sense of a fairly idyllic scene with a hint of tension and darkness creeping in.
    Beautifully orchestrated and the sound you get out of GPO is consistently good. The only thing I would do different is chill out on the tuned percussion a touch...but that's just me.

    Excellent stuff, look forward to hearing the rest of the movements very much.

    Tom.
