That was a beautiful piece really nice melodies, flawless transition and it contain a really epic feeling on it. The only thing that I'd recommend you is a better mixing, there were times that I had to force myself to hear the melody. In the beginning it felt nice like it was a intro in crescendo but then I noticed that the melody was below the strings so I was kind of upset that I couldn't hear clearly everything. You can work a little bit on the compression too but overall it was a awesome song.
I wanted the marcato strings and the minor lyrical crescendos (if you mean those) to be a great part of the melody, not just as background ambience. So it was my intention to make the strings stand out expressively. Perhaps I should've mastered it more thoroughly. However, I wouldn't say that the melody is below the strings. But I understand your point. Thanks for the critique!
