Lovely picking

What instrument was that? A fiddle? I know there is some sort of Oriental instrument that lies flat and the player just picks the strings in the same sort of way as a harp, but the sound is shorter and not quite as orchestral as a harp, though for this piece, it works.

I think that the bell tolling could have been done away with - it just gave the wrong sort of sound for the piece, in my opinion. Where the sounds of the locale came into the piece, these were just perfect, so keep that part up.

I thought that you went a little along the line of "Tubular Bells" in the middle, where your melody started to sound as if it was one of those pieces, but you recovered it and it was only a passing phase.

The instrument was indeed a Harp. I added an 2 phasers. One of an Acoustic and the other Classic Piano both through a Synth pad. and so it in a way turned the classic harp into its own beautiful sounding piece. By the time I put the bells in i had re listened to the song many times, so it all started to sound the same to me, If i had waited a week or so and edited it more I would have picked up on the bits I did not need. the middle was actually a mistake. I really effd it up, so I just cut it out and put in the orchestra church theme to cover up my horrific butcher job at that part

Nice weather effects

A very interesting song. The intro sounds very sinister with that deep growling sound, almost evil.
But luckily the song gets a lot more relaxing after that, heh.

The high pitched and fast paced melody creates the image of a warm but windy summer day in my mind. The sounds of water indicate that I am standing on or near a cliff (so the title was chosen very well, I guess).

Throughout the song you used some very nice sound effects that create a very nice atmosphere.
And even though the song seems to not change that much during the 7 minutes it plays the song never gets boring. It's very nice to listen to it, it feels very relaxing and it creates some nice images in my mind.

I was going for an anime style atmosphere. But in the middle after the thunder, it becomes sadder, the wind picks up, the rain starts, the sun is gone, hope is still there but first comes the storm, things are bad right after the thunder when the piano plays the sad song, pictures a destroyed childhood town to war, but now new life has started growing and children dreaming up adventures of there own, like the times of old.
