Originally written for a soon to be released documentary, “Hymn to the Fallen” is a short, cinematic and emotionally charged cue written for a full string orchestra with accompanying brass. It is composed after the style of a hymn and is both somber and hopeful.
As always, the samples used in this composition are industry standard; the combination of LA Scoring Strings 2.5 and Hollywood Strings makes for a rich, lush sound flows well and sounds quite real. With unsupported string orchestrations, chord voicings matter, so each measure was painstakingly composed in an effort to stay within the accepted professional guidelines of string orchestrations.
Please take the time to rate this piece and be sure to send me a link to the project this will be used in so I can feature it on my home page!
