    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.

    Hi Michael, Have just listened, with great enjoyment, to TEN.
    I greatly liked the orchestration, but was particularly keen on your various uses of the harp, throughout the piece.
    Very best wishes, Antony

    Hi Michael,

    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!

    With admiration,

    David Sosnowski

    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.

    Best regards,
    sd cisco
