    First-rate job on this, DeltaRomeo -- loved it!
    Particularly that lovely broad brass work and
    the heroic sections... really quite striking.

    Is the writing and arranging in this your work,
    too, DeltaRomeo? Beautifully done!

    All my best,

    I really like this!

    If you could rescore this for brass and percussion only, you could enter it in the Dallas Wind Symphony fanfare competition... I think it would show really well in the marble foyer of the Meyerson Symphony Center.

    Just an idea...

    Large scale orchestration!

    Being from Europe, my first impression was! Very American sounding score á la Williams with the Superman trumpets... you really use GPO to it's fullest The middle section had some comical orchestration details in the percussion section.


    Thanks for sharing your heroic adventure!

    Okay... Two words.

    Holy #$%^.

    Great choice of instruments; AMAZING orchestration. The percussion is... awesome (for lack of a better word), and the choir was just the right touch.

    Thank you for posting!

    Wonderful - you capture the epic film quality superbly. It works very as a tribute - the dedicatee would have been touched, I'm sure.

    Superb realization/rendering. Look forward to more of your work!
