If you can make 7 movements of great music, then that is NOT too much. I would just see how it goes, and if you get to 7, then great.

I personally would say yes, thats a bit much, thats almost a double symphony, but as the poster before me said, if its good music go for it, why not, Mahler had a lot of movements, why cant you right? Just remember to keep the music moving and progressive.

it depends on the piece. Cause for Distric Festival we played William Byrd Suite by Gordon Jacob and it was 6 movements long but we played only 3 because of time restraignts but if we had enough time we would have played them all. But if you are going to write a 7 movement piece make sure you have 2 slow-like parts. P.S. If you want some idea of big pieces listen to Planets i dont remeber who made it but it has 9!!! movements
Oh yea send me a copy of your piece if you make one. just message my account and ill give you my email.

I'm thinking of doing a seven movement piece too!!!!!
One movement for each day of the week...
Of course you can bend the rules and do 7 movements

Nice, that would be great! But it will take a long time to write.

It could be one huge masterpiece! Just remember to keep it interesting.

nah, dude, as long as you can keep it interesting and can make it work, then it can never be too long, if you've heard Hymnsong on A Phillip Bliss by David Holsinger, it's like 30 minutes long, but it's really amazing.
