Welcome [back] to Classical!

An excellent piece, through and through... I have little to say in regards to critique, although I feel some more mastering could have been done to bring out the lower range.

As a person who has tried to capture the conflagration of the crusades at least three times before in music, I find your interpretation one of the best I have heard. The only issues I hear seem to be more from the instrumentation and VSTs used, as well as the lack of a solid ending (that's what took off the 1 point). You have a great way with percussion, but I think you could have added more ethnic drums to the mix and created a truly magnificent drumline by the main melody. In addition, some French Horn "claxon-calls" could have called in a neat section with some tight-chord European stuff for a broader interpretation, and later taken up the melody with the choral part. Also, some tamborine/sleigh bells work would have done nicely, as it gives a nice ancient feel. The repetition could have been avoided with some more contrasting melody selections and a melody being played out, as well as some key changes (fun, fun, fun!). Also, some more varying woodwinds could have given a more complex lead in. I thoroughly enjoyed the piano part, but I think it could have been louder at parts, or transfered over/unison with other instruments at some points. There's a lot more you could have done, but it's a great piece through and through!

Keep up the good work, I hope to see more orchestral works from you. :)
