"The Child of Autumn" is the title of this lovely song by Postman. A nice and fitting name for this medieval piece. It starts with some very soft concertina i believe. Slowly the composer adds up more and more sounds all the time keeping the slow, harmonic nature of the song. Postman does this throughout most of the tune, he goes up, adds more, slow it down slightly. This way the tune will never become to hectic, there is always a nice balance between the sounds. Because of this, this song is very easy on your ears, and very easy to listen to. The melodies change, and overall this song has good variation. "The Child of Autumn" runs for about 6:30, making this a quite long tune. And with longer tunes, variation is always hard to achieve. But i think Postman succeeded, although some of the melodies come back many times. Overall, i think this is a very nice medieval tune, it has varying melodies and uses the 19 sounds in a good way - creating variation in a long tune. And he achieves this without adding too many sounds, a great feat, if you ask me. The artist managed to squeeze 19 high quality samples into 477kb (unzipped). Some of the sounds did sound a little semi-bad when played at high notes, but nothing too serious. I did find the flute was just slighly off note, something you also noticed at high notes. Overall, the sample quality is great. The samples fit the style very well, they all add to the medieval feel of the song. Looking for things that could be improved in this song is actually hard. When you have a calm-styled song as this, you can't really say "some more speed would be nice", because it is not meant to be fast, but rather a relaxing, medieval tune. And as such, this tune succeeded. The lenght of the tune is also good, it is not too long, or too short. I don't think you could make a longer tune with these samples, without it getting slightly boring. He uses most of the samples effectively, playing them in different frequencies and with different effects. The "background" sounds, such as the choir, is used in a good way as they make way for an "uprise". This shows the artist has great skill on the technical, as well as the musical side. Overall: A great medieval tune, definitely worth the download if you enjoy this style. Good job!
