I am composing this song for MMU's Select Chorus to perform at the Spring concert and I need to finish it by March. I will write it so that it can be performed with strings, but that the strings are optional and are only an additional part of the orchestration. I also intend to use the song for the soundtrack of a show I will make in the distant future. It is about having the strength to rise up and fight against something that seems invincible. I will write the lyrics in Latin. Here are several songs that have successfully captured the feeling that I will try to invoke with this song:

A short piece which needs a lot of work. New sections are wanted, as well as work on transitions needed. Creating a mysterious midsection for the piece, as well as lengthening the beginning are two goals, along with the ones stated in sentence two.

Hello My name is John Phillips from SCSVT. We are hosting an art show that contains many types of art and music. The theme of the art show life and death. I am trying to have a more militaristic sound in my music relating to life and death. I had a mind of fanfare and I'm going to add trumpets. I’m also going to add flutes as well.

I'm finally back! Sorry it's been SO long... Here is the edited version of The Night Lake. I completely rewrote the piece so it doesn't sound anything like the original (however it's been so long, you might not even remember the original). For that reason, in my mind, it doesn't sound like a Night Lake anymore, so I may have to change the title later. I tried to keep in mind what you said about having a consistent theme and to have the strings more involved. Measures 33- 42 are the ending, but 43-the end is an alternative. I haven't quite decided yet which ending I want to use, but if you have any feedback about that, feel free to let me know which one you prefer. By the way, even though your comments aren't on the site anymore, I made sure I copied and pasted them into a separate document, so I still have them. :)Thank you so much! And again, sorry for taking so long!

This is the second movement of a sonata in D Major. In the first 16 measures, the left hand has the melody while the right hand accompanies it with arpeggios. The left hand has two voices. In measures 17-24, the left hand plays arpeggios and accompanies the right hand. In measures 25-32, the left hand holds the melody again, and the right hand accompanies it. The piece can be found here:
