Interpretation of Hamlet as a Whole (replacing the act III sketch)

This is the famous "to be or not to be act", and I wanted to honour it with a piece of music.... ahem:

The magical flute playing was done by my wife, Tabitha, and I was on the organ.

I feel like so many times Hamlet is just so indecisive. The repetitiveness and attitude I tried to put into this piece of music hopefully will express that better than I can say it in words. I believe the biggest battles are the ones we wage in our own souls;  I tried to convey in this piece longing of finding out what one should do, as if waiting for an answer to come, or hesitation in taking a certain direction.

  1. I really enjoyed this piece. It's cool all of the work you put into doing this and it turned out great. Nice job
