In Memoriam (A Tribute)

With Remembrance Day coming up (Veterans day for you Americans) I felt somewhat inspired (and compelled) to do a martial themed tribute song. Of all the public holidays we have, this is one of the few I truly believe in supporting.
Many good men and women have paid in blood for all the freedoms we now enjoy, and it's a sad fact that many of our generation forget this.
Whether you agree with military action or not, it's important that we never forget those who fought for us, and just how much it ultimately cost them.

This song is one of my rare pieces where I don't meld different styles, it's purely orchestral featuring the entire range of staple instruments. Like all my music though, it is still done in a progressive style. I'm not quite sure if this song is ultimately hopeful sounding or sad and full of mourning. It seems to border the cusp between them, which was somewhat unintended but ultimately suiting I think considering the source inspiration.

I hope you guys enjoy it, and I hope it serves as a bit of a reminder to those in my generation (and younger ones) on why we should be grateful for all the freedoms we enjoy.

....Lest we forget.

Really Cool

I wish i could do this in band at school...

Missing something

Eh, I like what you have going on, but you could almost add another trumpet on top of what you have now. You have a very good baseline but it needs something to keep the song from going really stale after the first 30 seconds or so.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll keep that in mind on future projects.



It sounds great, I have some bias since I love orchestral music, but it really seems to show respect to all who have died in conflicts concerning freedom around the globe. Thanks for the great song, I'm sure others will appreciate it as much as I do!
