Mark,
 
That looks like it might work better.
 
I have to say, though, that I really liked the sound before, with the horn doubling the trumpet.
 
It's great that you put yourself out there and are open to suggestions. Agree or disagree, the back and forth is a great pleasure.
 
Cheers,
Jer

What do you think of this?  I like the overall texture now.

I see my mentor tomorrow ... it will be interesting to hear his take on things.

I met with my mentor today.  I made a few tweaks to parts .... however, I  will concentrate on slightly reformulating the ending measures.  I have a few ideas and directions to pursue.  In a few weeks after a final meeting or so on this work I will post it in the completed section of the forums.

Thank you  all for your support and advice.   ;D

Mark

PS: I think I will revisit my Through the Looking Glass composition as my next learning project with my Mentor.

Mark,
 
I played around with your latest revision in Finale.
 
I like the idea of that fanfare standing more or less alone, without that descending note pattern behind.
 
Here's my dos centavos. A bit too syncopated, perhaps?
 
Cheers,
Jer

Jer,

I will be away from my computer for awhile.  I definitely will see how it fits. I've already made challenges to the section with a similar intent; although, I am open to all possibilities.

Thanks .....................

Mark,
 
Hope I wasn't being presumptuous.
 
I just thought it would be fun to try some things with your scoring.
 
I enjoyed hearing your sounds coming out of my own setup.
 
Cheers,
Jer

Not at all.

All suggestions given in the right spirit are most welcome.
