artist Castle Courtyard is the first 2 parts of 3.. (pt 3 is in the works)
My Official name for the parts (so far) is Castle Courtyard Part 1- 'The Royal Garden' and Castle Courtyard Part 2- 'The Ballroom Waltz'
The change from Part 1 to Part 2 is quite obvious.
I plan on keeping the basic medley in part 3 to correspond to Parts 1 & 2

This is my first real composition that I actually wrote about 3 years ago, and as time passed, I found ways to improve the quality of it. I have written many other songs but nothing compares to the work and long hours I put in creating this song. Hope you enjoy it.

Jamie (My oldest son) was playing on the piano one day and inspired me with 6 notes that he inadvertantly hit, and that's where I took over and wrote the entire composition. - Brian J Young

Not really bad this music. The beginning till 2.20 is nice to listen to but when the drums start it´s getting down (nothing really special happens) and after 5.07 it becomes a bit boring.
I think this music is a bit too long for my taste and something is missing (some highlights and other samples).
I think this music is above average.

Again, this tune suffers from really, really bad piano samples. The intro is eerie, but as soon as the piano pops in, it sounds really bad. From that point, the tune is rather dull, not much is happening there and more inappropriate samples appear. This tune could sound really nice with some good samples, but it's nothing special for me this way.

This is certainly not bad, but it's not the greatest thing ever. I just think it's too boring. The first part from the beginning to 5:07 is pretty good, but after that it gets really repetitive. The samples are a bit low quality, too. Something seems to be missing. It sounds pretty thin. Maybe some nice deep bass strings would do the trick. Anyways, 7 is not a horrible score.

Wow! Obviously a lot of hard work on this one. I'm admittedly not a tough reviewer, but this one blew me away, particularly in light of the difficulties involved in getting this 3/4 piece done in S3M format. Simply sounds great. This is the type of piece that modules exist for -- to give people a chance to listen and a chance to see the music.

I thought this song was very well thought out and creative.. I like it. I read the review on it and my own opinion is basically the same except it seems like the repeativeness of the piano parts were necessary to make the song a whole.
