    Ed,

    I think that you have present a musical idea that your title identifies with very well. It has a nice theme, steady rythem and good content. Nice use of the GPO for the playback. A little vibrato or ambience would give it more feeling of depth I think. But nicely done as a whole.

    Nice work on this, Ed; good writing for
    brass, and the percussion work is especially
    effective.

    It'd be nice if you got some better body and
    depth in the low brass in softer sections; but
    to tell you the truth, I have a lot of difficulty
    with that myself... if you figure out how to
    achieve that, clue me, will ya... lol?

    Like the ending on this, very strong.

    Best,
