Which one should I keep?

I posted my composition "Passions of the Heart" yesterday, and since that time, I reworked the piece eliminating the intro.  I am re-posting both the original and new version.  I would like you to tell me which you prefer.

As always thanks for your help!

  • Hey Michael, sorry it took me a while to respond. Went on a little vacation, and now getting caught up.  I wrote the melody some years back and intended on making it a vocal, but just couldn't come up with something I was happy with.  I recently decided to make it an instrumental, and have had several people say they were touched by it and felt it would fit nicely as a soundtrack. I did decide to use the #2 version.  Thanks for your constructive feed back!

    Take care,

    Gene

    Gene, is this meant to be film music? It sort of has that feel. As I have noted before, in postings here that are not done with the best technology (and I don't mean to suggest that mine is anywhere near where it should be), I always imagine how it would sound on a real orchestra. This does have a unified structure, with quiter sections expanding nicely into more powerful ones. Oh, and I think I liked version 2  better. If not meant to be film music, but rather more "serious" music, I think it would be a bit on the sentimental side. I guess I'm saying that this succeeds as film music, but otherwise I'm not sure exactly where it would fit.
