This piece is written for brass, strings, and percussion, and sounds very dark and ominous. The climax of the piece is supposed to represent the last rays of the sun disappearing beneath the horizon, leading to the end of the piece where all is dark.

(Edit: I added REVerence from Cubase 5's new reverb, which should make this piece sound much fuller)



all i can say is....

wow..... I was thinking the same thing as the guy under me i too made a little story.. darkness may come... but all will never be lost until we give up hope.. hope will be our guide and hate and saddness will only strenthen us... but never be comsumned by it.... we may experience death.. famine.. pestilence even war... but aslong as we have hope and love in our hearts maybe... just maybe... one of us shall prevail.. ( opening to peasants rebelling to a triant. Leaded by a palladin of course... or maybe for a twist a Dark knight. good ahead and use the idea if you want ive got millions of em).

woah, now we're talking! thanks for the backstory, makes listening to this for the hundredth time feel like the 1st time again :)


Felt as if all hope had just disappeared with that last rays of sun.
Felt as if nothing was worth was living for........
Felt as if the judgment is upon us all, and that we can only despair.....
But we shall never do so. We must keep up fighting for a better future for us and others.
Let us embrace the horrors that will come when all the rays of sun are gone.
That is what I felt when I listened to this song.
Keep up the great work!

The beauty of this piece truly lies in the subtlety of the orchestration and emotion. Everything you wrote fits together so beautifully and the result is a rich, elegant sound that you listen to for hours on end and never get tired of. The dynamic extremes you've presented are very fitting and the hints of melody that are interwoven shine beautifully. I cannot wait to hear the third piece of this suite! Full marks - 10/10, 5/5

Thank you for all your feedback, I'm glad you liked it!

Originally I hadn't planned on making a 2nd or 3rd movement, but in the beginning stages of writing "A Storm in the Night" (now the 2nd movement of the suite), an inspiration hit me where I decided this MUST be a 3-piece suite! I just couldn't end it...the Sun's gotta come up again! The 3rd movement will be done within a week or two, but in the meantime enjoy the music!
