Short and sweet.
Welcome to Macjams Charles - a nice piece of music you have here.
Short and sweet. It's sad that "Fallen" had to be written at all.

This is a moving and beautiful piece, and would be so even if you had
not given it a programmatic title. It has in it the seeds of a truly great
composition. I like the lyricism, and your slightly unconventional
treatment of harmony. I could listen to this over and over. It is far, far
too short, though! It is slow and expansive, leading me at least to
expect and wish for a longer, more substantial composition. It is as if
an extraordinarily talented actor were to walk onto a stage and say "to
be, or not to be; that is the question," and pause thoughtfuly, and then
say it again, and then walk off the stage. He (the actor), like you, has
the audience in the palm of his hand, and can play us like a fiddle (to
borrow an old expression), but chooses not to. Aargh!

I've gone on too long, but would not have done so had I not been so
impressed by this! If it's any consolation, learning how to write more
extended compositions is probably the biggest challenge for classical
music composers, much harder than orchestration, or coming up with
good ideas.

Great work once again!

Once again you're on the mark Clark. Just this weekend I've started to work
with Garageband. I'm having lot's of fun and am feeling more confident
about what I can do with it. I know mastering this and other programs like it
will help me extend and explore my work more fully though a part of me
enjoys and in some ways prefers shorter works that don't overstay their
welcome.
Yesterday was a beautiful day here in San Diego - a day off for us here in the
USA to celebrate our country’s birth. I got up early looking forward to later
going to the beach with my wife Debbie but I then I started to think about all
those young men and women who wouldn’t be enjoying this beautiful day or
anything else again. If only in a small way, “Fallen” conveys that then I’ve
succeeded. As always Clark, thanks for your gracious comments

Having served in the U.S. Navy for 25 years and having been in action, I

our fallen shipmates.

Thank you
Rick, as you know it’s always great to get positive feedback for something
you’ve composed but reading yours is especially meaningful to me. Thank you.

I am so moved by this... it's like the most beautiful musical poetry. No,
it's better than that. Great work, sir!

Ever consider having a narrator read a text to something like this? It
doesn't need it at all -- works beautifully as is -- but it's just a thought.

Thank's again Rick. This piece moves me as well. It's short and not overly
complicated but it speaks to me. Thankfully I haven't been directly affected by
these wars but seeing all the sadness and tragedy that is happening today
brought this music out.

(I'm not Rick; the name's Morris, but most people call me Mo. Not a problem,
just letting you know!)

I'm sorry about that Mo. Sometimes I check this at work and I'm not as careful as
I should be. Still I do thank you for saying such nice things about "Fallen" and I
hope you get into Garageband yourself and start posting some of your own
work. I'll keep an eye and ear out for it.
Best of Luck!
