This is an orchestral piece I wrote to the poem "The Eagle" by Lord Alfred Tennyson.

He clasps the crag with crooked hands;
Close to the sun in lonely lands,
Ring'd with the azure world, he stands.

The wrinkled sea beneath him crawls;
He watches from his mountain walls,
And like a thunderbolt he falls.

I hope you enjoy it!

I'm just in awe. This is one of the most beautiful orchestral pieces I've ever heard in my life. Seriously. I know my opinion probably doesn't mean much, especially since I'm not an official or anything like that, but this was just...amazing.

The way the instruments blended together almost made me feel like crying. I could feel the amount of emotion this piece had, and boy, there was a lot. Absolutely stunning.

The drop was epic. Everything about it. It was fast, rhythmic, and epic while also maintaining the tone of the piece and not being too repetitive.

5 Stars.

Mmm this is nice. Nice ideas for the melody and kudos for kicking in drums and an electric guitar :).

We've all got to kick it up a notch in the end.

Just beautiful...

I imagined an eagle while listening to this amazing song!
The poem & the music are..well...how can I describe it? Oh yes!


AudioVision responds:
