Great job Michael and it was great to hear something from you.
While there are typical "Michael-esque" gestures in this piece, there also seems to be a clarity I've not heard before. Don't take this as an insult to anything you've done in the past. I could be off here too, but I'd be curious to know if it's something you've been working on.
Beautifully written and orchestrated. I also like the excursion into different styles.

One heck of a job on the writing in this! This is decidedly
some of the best work I've heard from you.
Were I conducting it, I think I would be tempted strongly
to a less Classical, more (much more) Romantic baton with
it... this is so rich in drama, especially the broader parts.
Marvelous piece -- and by all means: Bravo!
Note to self - start looking through earlier posts.
Excellent sound and composition. Intricate compositions like this amaze me. Great balance and variety. Great use of the instruments, and that choir was a surprise - and when music surprises me I love it more.
When I think of a locomotive I was expecting a very straightforward rhythm, but was pleasantly surprised. Love the build up to the end as well.
Quite the piece and the imagination! - definitely better than the first version. In terms of the mix although I liked your dynamics there could be a bit more thump or bass to the overall mix.
At first I was not sure about the ending but then listened again and I think it is in keeping with the rest of the piece.
Good job on this! 8 minutes - wow!

Hello there Michael;
Superb in EVERY way. Entertaining, original, intricate and deftly managed, your skill-set, honed sharper than ever! It is also mysteriously titled, "Churning the Ghost". Does that mean ghost conjuring?........... Anyway, I liked this piece a great deal and I thank you for sharing it and for engaging in its complete creation, without compromise and in a generous spirit. This is high-minded music of the first order, all should know they are honored by you posting!
Thank you, Michael.
