"Gypsy Shoegazer"

Instruments: Percussion, Voice, Guitar, Trombone

Feel: Calming, Dark, Eerie, Somber

No, I don't know what this is. Some sort of Bulgarian dirge? It has a good 2-part folk melody that is pretty easy to sing, and a wonderful B section with super cadences at the middle and end.Sheet music for the voices available here.

"Music for Funeral Home - Part 11"

Instruments: Organ

Feel: Calming, Relaxed, Somber

This piece works very well for an actual funeral home setting, or any solemn event. The organ is light and flutey, the chords are often meandering, but have some closure now and then. There are 11 parts in this series - totaling about 34 minutes.

"Danse Morialta"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Relaxed, Somber, Uplifting

Simple, simple, effective piano piece. This one is hard to pin down emotionally, so I marked it at both somber and uplifting. It is really quite good... though not quite Satie.

"Promises to Keep"

Instruments: Piano

Feel: Calming, Somber, Uplifting

Slow impromptu for solo piano. A little hopeful, a little sorrowful... I'm sure there is a word for this feeling, but I don't know it.

"Oppressive Gloom"

Instruments: Strings, Bass Clarinet, Percussion

Feel: Dark, Eerie, Epic, Mysterious, Somber, Suspenseful

Moody moody dark score. Almost a death march. Loops pretty darned well - but you need to trim the end.

"Crusade"

Instruments: French Horns, Trombones, Percussion, Trumpets

Feel: Dark, Epic, Somber, Suspenseful

Written as travelling music for a video game... this is probably a bit too active for that. There is a beautiful choral section in the trombones at 2:18. Good anvils.

"Hero Down"

Instruments: Strings, French Horn, Trombones, Percussion, Flute

Feel: Epic, Intense, Somber

A piece in three or four parts... depending on how you count parts. The penultimate section features a lonely flute, slowly joined by a children's choir, and finally exploding into a giant choral and orchestral ending.
From the original soundtrack to "The Last Stand of the Mechanolith".
