    Patriotic Piece

    I know the contest's over but I did this one this afternoon. I've always loved
    Columbia the Gem of the Ocean and here I've orchestrated it for brass and strings.

    Nice work Val.I particularly enjoyed the Mozartian coda,and the surprising organ entry.Now don't shoot me for saying this but it is quite nice to hear a patriotic song,without snare drum.

    Huh? Timpani man, timpani. Strange thing, just after I posted this, I went to the store, came home, and did a revision. The rev is more concise. Revision to Columbia the Gem of the Ocean.

    Thats what I am talking about,I love the tymps in your piece,and it was refreshing to me that there was no snare.

    Excellent use of GPO instruments and I like the Timpani also. This piece is one of my favorites also. You did it justice in your rendition. Great string work too........

    I actually like them both. The first is a bit repetitious, but nevertheless a fine piece of orchestration.

    Not to echo Joaz too loudly, but thank you so much for misplacing your snare set... lol.

    A pleasant surprise, pulling out the stops and going with organ in this -- a fine interpretation, and a most enjoyable listen, valhalx!

    I enjoyed it too, but did anyone feel the low-octave trombone in the original version muddied things a bit? I know my college professors would have dinged me for that...
