Hi Mark,
Here is a Noteperformer rendering of your piece. Due to importing problems, I left out some unpitched percussion (bass drum, cymbals). Other than that, I did little modification of the score.  I noticed you did some workarounds to get the timpani roll sound - that would be unnecessary with Noteperformer.

Well...well....well.

There is a significant difference in the audio presentation.  What glorious brass!.

Interesting that the library influences the clarity to such an extent.

I may go back and as per Jet make the piece a bit more "dirty".

I am now more invested in the work.

Thanks .... time to upgrade.

Mark

Please note .... as to the completeness of this piece; originally it is part of a suite. 

I will post the completed mid-section .....finished 8 years ago and performed.

This is the intro movement.

Jay, Mark,
 
That sounds fantastic now.
 
Mark, on another listening, it feels to me like an overture, introducing themes that will later be expanded in the complete work.
 
Cheers,
Jer

As I said the idea was to have different moments reflecting different experiences at the fair.

This section is called the "Arcade".  The setting is nighttime ....... the protagonist a child going through the thoroughfare.

You might have heard it before ... not sure.

Mark

This was performed by my community orchestra.
