One day we will be forced to leave Earth. We will leave with memories. We will leave with our brothers and sisters in hope and despair. As we gaze upon Earth from the endless sky, we will observe its ravaged soul along with the crimson moon.

I have to say, your skill with using those strings keeps getting better and better and when I heard that choir, my jaw dropped. (literally.) Absolutely amazing! The story was a nice touch and creates a very clear image when I hear this. It adds a lot to to the overall emotion.
If I may offer one piece of advice or rather an observation, the horns (from 2:52 and on) seemed a bit... hmm... loud? Too sharp I guess? Or maybe just the melody they were playing seemed to detract from the overall piece. I'm NOT saying get rid of them though. I could be very wrong though. It may just be me.
Regardless, an astounding piece of music for sure! Well done!

Thanks a lot!

Regarding the horns, I wanted them to be quite powerful, expressive and "in charge", therefore, they accede the piece a bit. In addition, french horns are a practical tool to construct a suitable finale, and I wanted a more forceful, yet serene ending. However, thanks for the advice! Really appreciate constructive comments.

Awesome song dude, I think this is going to be my new tune for when I work :D

raxxroth responds:

Thanks, man!
