Remembrance Day

As Remembrance day in Canada is approaching I thought I'd compose a small tribute to our military for the work they do and have done. I noticed recently that there is pretty much more hype for Skyrim over Remembrance day here... and yes Skyrim will be so awesome, but we should still pause our sweet awesome new elder scrolls release for a minute to remember the people who fought for us and others.

Very Nice

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.
