    William McBride's Symphony Number One

    Hi all,
    My name is William McBride. Music is something which all people enjoy, it is like a great book, since great books are memorable, which is why most people enjoy music. I strive to write memorable music. When I was young I lived in Hawaii and heard a song called "I Love Life." I listened to classical music then too and remember enjoying it much on my family's bulky Sharp television and stereo record player.
    I am thirty-six years old and I am writing Symphonies now. I hope to have the blessing of more life to write, and since I borrow my motto from Sir John Falstaff's "Give me Life!" (from Shakespeare's Henry IV, part one), I seek even more life in music to share my melodies.
    At this site I am including a Symphony Number One, which was made using computer software. The piece is in four movements and can be found here at:
    Feel free to drop me a note if you have any questions or comments. I always love to hear from listeners, as they are my guides.
    I am happy to share my music.
    Willaim Godfrey McBride III.

Also, I'd be getting a much more realistic sample set of orchestral sounds as those you used, to my ears at least, were not pleasant. Don't take my critique the wrong way - there may very well be someone here who likes your musical voice. Not my cup of tea.
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.
