I seldom have enough time any more to do a serious, original composition but I had two free hours yesterday so I jumped at the chance. I wanted to write a serious fanfare based on a Gm7 chord and this is what came out. The opening features a short ensemble trill effect to set the mood and capture the listenerís attention. The main theme is introduced with an unusual rhythmic section in order to give the line an unsettled feel. Once that was achieved, it goes into the two part fugue section with contrasting dynamics. Performing the dynamics as written is very important to achieve the proper effect. Nearing the close of the piece I used stacked choral entrances and ended the number with a conventional church sounding ending. If you perform this fanfare, I would appreciate a recording and if. If you rehearse this piece, please let me know what you think of it.

music556 It's very neat! There's a lot of melodic contrast and there are counter-melodies everywhere! I was on the edge of my seat wondering what would happen next. Your use of dynamics are excellent; bringing the main melody out and having counter-melodies playing a little quieter underneath is great! One thing I would improve upon, however, is making the counter-melodies and sustained notes underneath the main melody a little quieter to help bring out the main melody, which is the idea of your piece.
