    Writing music for the joy of it. (with Windows 7 64bit, Intel i7 processor, 12GB memory, LOTS of disk space, Finale 2014, Garritan GPO, JABB3, COMB, Steinway, World Instruments, & Soundiron Olympus Micro Choir. And if I ever figure out how to use Sonar X2...the sky's the limit)

    Nice, very stately. It has similarities with typical English hymns/anthems, such as Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory. The orchestration and countermelodies work well. It could be mixed a bit louder and brighter, with perhaps a bit more reverb. Well done. Did you have lyrics in mind when you wrote it?

    Thanks. Sorry, but I'm not much for doing lyrics. I try to let my music do the talking...

    Very nice and very moving piece! Very pleasant to listen to. I would concur about the low levels and more dynamics would be great. I have found that mixing is almost as important as the composition. Same as a really great photo that is dark and underexposed with poor contrast. it's true potential is hidden.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I sure liked your A Hymn For Peace.

    It did seem to be too quiet at the beginning and then at the repeat the volume is much higher. I was thinking it would work better if the volumes were a little higher from the get go and more bottom end. After the repeat there could be more of a swelling toward the end.

    This music has a lot of potential.
