I agree with samulis, the lower registers on the orchestra don't match well with the low voice of the men chanting. I agree that spreading out a variety of octaves with french horns would make it sound much better.
I know how tough writing music can be, and as a fellow musician I think that this is a very nice piece. I really like the incorporation of the multiple ranges of voice chanting made this piece sound really nice. I think you did a very good job with the whole remembrance theme. 4/5 8/10
Keep up the good work :)
A great start :)
The low registers sound too muddled, in my opinion. You should consider having perhaps some French horns or instead use a string ensemble spread out across several octaves for a stronger effect. You might want to consider using a snare drum and cymbals in there, it would lend to the song quite nicely. The break before the end is odd, but I reckon it's a choice of style.
A lovely piece. I find it very honorable and kind of you to embark on writing a piece for this day. As I'm American, we have our own Veteran's Day which is similar, and I can relate to the respect deserved by those who serve and have served.
Best of luck,
It's you again!
French horns are pretty sweet. The sampling I have for french horn is a lot nicer too. I might consider actually making a fully orchestral song for once... maybe during christmas vacation.
Thanks again haha.
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
