Mary - Queen of Scots (1986)



 Genre: Celtic

Get Flash to see this player.

This was written as an experiment working with orchestral textures and some new sounds I got for my ESQ-1; namely a really nice bagpipe sound and a very "woody" sounding recorder. I came up with the title later... the music sort of reminded me of that Scottish melancholy and Mary's bad end. Recorded in 1986.

I love this one
You obviously have some talent. The samples and the
intruments you use in this one sound much better. The
dynamics are there as well as the expression. I marked this
one as a favorite.

Wonderful tone poem
Wonderful tone poem. Masterful use of synth tech. I had an
ESQ1 and have the Roland 220, but getting this sort of
realism is a trick. Nicely done. The opening is a little distant,
and the space between the intro and the second movement
(as the wind blows) is kind of long for Internet listeners. Most
of the movement is from chord progressions, and my ear
prefers melodic phrases, so I hear this more as a Cinematic
scoring. But this is a top notch piece.

very well done
A very rich and dynamic celtic piece. It reminds me a little bit of the Braveheart, in a good way, haha.

It is lovely
Longer than I was given to expect so an added bonus. It does sound like something an orchestra would present for a special occasion and would do as a film score.Thank you.

Classically trained composer and orchestrator. Been doing sound design and synthesis for a long time. Enjoying the incredible power of computers and samples, but it's great just to sit down with a guitar or analog synth and just play too. Graham ... [see more]
