Ben,
Have you gone back to rework this, following Michel's suggestions? (I think you should.)

Thanks for the observation, AO! Ron, I made a couple changes immediately after Michel's suggestions, but I haven't looked at this in a few weeks. I'll pull it up over the next few days and take another swing at it.

Ben: I agree with Arthur that there are some good ideas here. You need to think about dynamics and phrasing--I see none of those things in this version. Remember that euphonium players need to breathe, so think about adding natural breathing (phrasing) places with rests, or when a breathing spot isn't absolutely clear, add breath marks. It's too bad you didn't add some vibrato to the euphonium part--without it, the instrument's wonderful singing quality is lost. I know Finale's euphonium sample doesn't include a vibrato option  :(. I suppose you could add that in a DAW. I don't know how that can be added in Finale.
