Topic: Hymn for the dead

    Cool Hymn for the dead

    Hi all, it has been a quite long time since I posted a new original piece here - so I decided to compose short and quite emotional piece today. I also promised my friend, Worra, to create a little demo of his newly released recorder sample library. So I used two of the recorders (Alt & Bass) as the solo instruments.

    Listen! (2mb)

    Also, this is the first piece I have written using Overture4. I love how things are integrated into Overture4, great job Geniesoft!

    Comments etc. are appreciated.

    Edit: forgot to post the instrumentation. It's 2 recorders, 2 french horns, string orchestra (with mutes).
    Sincerely,
    Falcon1

    I like this.

    I enjoy (if that this the right word) melancholy music.

    Although I am very hesitant about offering any suggestions/comments - it is after all your music - I felt that perhaps it was a little rushed. If I was to work on this piece, I would take the tempo down, but then I do like very contemplative works .

    Thanks Dan!

    Richard, you're absolutely correct - it could be played more slowly. But it just depends on the mood you're in. Maybe I'll do a little slower rendition just for you, if you like.

    nice piece of music!!
    I enjoy it very much!
    I can see this theme in an opening track for a Passion!! what do you think?
    Anyway if you only slow down the tempo, a little bit, and you develop it, this will be surely a great piece.
    Only my congratulation falcon1.
    Best regards to you,
    Roberto

    falc 'ol buddy 'ol doh dio doh!
    I concur the tempo may be more appropriate if slowed down a bit. However, I can only dream of writing as well as this so what do I know.
    Beach is a very passionate writer and you've just joined the ranks! In my experience it is the hardest emotion in music, literature, and poetry to portray. You have done well my friend ... very well.
    This I must keep in my collection.

    Very nice!

    I liked this, interesting chord progression



    As for the tempo, I think it's fine on its own,... but perhaps a touch fast for a death hymn.

    Nice!

    Stefan!

    WOW! This was beautiful and chilling. I agree with the tempo comments, but musically, you have really done a great job!
    The recorders are sweet. Tell your friend Worra that they are great.
