This is a conceptual miniature orchestral suite. The setting of this piece is during the final moments of the United States Civil War of 1861 from the perspective of the Southern Confederacy. The suite is comprised of four sections that represent a different scene. You might find other uses for this track, or the separate sections for a project of any kind! “Southern Pastures” is a grand cinematic orchestral suite with some southern-flavor that is not to be missed by anyone!
I understand a cinematic track like this changes throughout the piece, so I took the liberty to separate them so that you can use this on a project more effectively.
