Description
This is a slightly revised version of "Shiloh".
I don't usually submit revisions but that's really why we're here to fix things that needed fixin.
Thank's for the first listen and if you go to battle one more time with me thanks again.

The Battle of Shiloh, was a major battle in the Western Theater of the American Civil War, fought on April 6 and April 7, 1862, in southwestern Tennessee. Confederate forces under Generals Albert Sidney Johnston and P.G.T. Beauregard launched a surprise attack against the Union Army of Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. The Confederates achieved some initial success on the first day but were ultimately defeated on the second day.

Well done
You make us feel the tension of the marching, then the battle ensues and I can see the soldiers falling under the crimson sky. Powerful...

Hi Charlie.....
This version brings out your arrangment much better. I played with the first version and was pleasantly surprised at the hidden parts in the arrangement.

I'm glad you redid it. This time the arrangement comes to life. It deserves that.

It's very, very enjoyable and fits the description perfectly.

Take care.

Thanks Paul,
I was tempted to take down the earlier version but it's usually interesting to see how a work develops. I agree that this one is better and thanks so much for taking the time to check both out.
Glad you enjoyed Shiloh my friend,
Take care,
Charlie

Quite cinematic
and quite good, too. It's not "When Johnny Comes Marching Home" but it is a fine tribute to the fallen (on both sides). Thanks.

"When Johnny Comes Marching Home"
is a great tune. I'd be happy if this is remembered 10 days let alone 150 years.
Thanks Richard.

Toward a certain doom
This builds a wonderful sense of anticipation. It's like a slow march toward the inevitable, with lots of interest as the instrumental lines weave around each other and let the sense of what is to come unfold as tonal colours for the listener. The use of the occasional sprinkle of dissonance lets us know that all is not well in this march - maybe not everyone is quite looking forward to what is about to transpire. The ending and the way it quickly comes to silence reminds me of how quickly a life is lost in war - and there were many in this encounter.

This is nice mix too Charlie - clean and crisp with nice lateral placement of your orchestra around the soundstage.

Did I mention I'm downloading this one?

Take care,
Doug

I know
I wouldn't be looking forward to this encounter either.
Doug I always enjoy your takes on my music so much. They're rich in detail, perceptive add dimension to the work.

I may be getting better with my mixing but I still feel like a babe in the woods. Glad you found it worth the download too. That's always a compliment.

Cheers,
Charlie

Powerful, beautiful
Powerful, beautiful. The dynamics and interaction of the instruments is quite beautiful. And the unrelenting drum beat as a portrayal of regimentation and the inexorable march is just very well done. Thank you...

Thanks Richmond,
Glad you caught this and very happy it struck you so powerfully.

Heroic
Your arrangement does some great things here, building on top of that somewhat march-like basis. Very much enjoyed.

Thrilling
Just add some stronger percussion and you will have a finished masterpiece, similar to the ending but with tympani and cymbals . . .

I'm happy you caught this Vincent...
and pleased that you found the video. Not many did. The music came first then - even though I have and know final cut - I edited it in iMovie and that went pretty well.

I always appreciate your comments and support my friend.
Best,
Charlie
