Excellent piece! Sounds like a town theme song for a game. If i didn't know any better I would have thought this came from one of the great composers!

I have to take half a star off just because this theme feels a little -too- gentle. Some kind of rich, lower harmony would have grounded the overall sound better. Still, I really enjoy it as is!


I agree wholeheartedly with MaestroSorrow (except on the piano, which I think this type of song does better without).
I think the 5/8 really works for the song, too, it feels very natural. The flow is great. You build up gradually, yet unpredictably. Great melodies, everything blends together and still remains distinctable.
The tambourine does fall out of line a bit, because it sounds a bit too canny, maybe some reverb would've solved that, but it's a minor inconvenience and easily forgotten.
Solid 5/5. Keep it up man.

This one is damn good!

hmm, I really like the feel you introduce here richivinsky. Very classy, medievil, and townish. I really like the melody, and the core of the song is pure and just.

A great deal of knowledge in what you do, again you've proven it here. I didn't quite like the tamberines, they seemed kinda out of place with the rest of the song.

I would have also liked to have a flute/french horn solo, I think that would have been pretty neat, and a piano?

Overall however, excellent, excellent work. I was very impressed with this one.

5/5 from me.
