Cool concept; I love organ music. Aside from some moments of light flooding, this was decently pulled off. Doesn't pass for a real organ of course, but for what it is, it sounds relatively good. Right now though, the arrangement is vastly underdeveloped. Only 2:13-long, it doesn't say much in the little time given.

Not that it has to, but it also doesn't sound very melodic, on account of the tempo. Once you familiarize yourself with the theme, you hear how there are at least some new ideas with respect to the writing. Beyond adapting it to the instrument though, there's still little interpretation given to the theme in the big picture. Expand the composition with more ideas. Interesting first sub though.

NO (resubmit)

Such a fitting title; you really nailed the concept, I think. The problem is that I think this piece is just too short. You've got a lot of slow, sustained sections, but I think you could really go places with some quicker, moving lines. Some runs that play on the melody could really work; some kind of softer/lighter section that doesn't have the stateliness of the rest of the piece.

This comes off sounding a lot like a first movement to a larger piece. I'd like to see more exploration of the theme. Hopefully you can do it.

NO for now, but keep at it.
