Nice!  It sounds quite epic and Final Fantasy-esque to me.  The build to the main section (where the snare drum comes in and gives a very martial impression) is very enjoyable.  Your piece starts sounding quite overly dramatic and operatic with the liberal use of those scalar runs around 3:00.  Overall though, from an orchestration standpoint you use very limited forces of the orchestra at any given time rarely employing tutti instrumentation - and you seem to have quite a big orchestra including choir but never use all of it at once.  I guess there is a tendency to over-orchestrate sometimes among beginners which you avoided though.  I just recently figured out how to do this in MuseScore too but it seems like all your instruments are panned to the center when it could have made your piece sound fuller if the 1st Violins were on the left and cellos and basses on the right (sometimes some orchestras seat the 2nd Violins on the right - depends on what you want).  You might want to consult an orchestral seating chart for where to put the rest of the instruments as well.  Overall a really great job though - quite enjoyable!  Thanks for sharing!

I don't understand how is it in professional way, but like a person who just listen with his ears - I think it's great and it make's to dream. The first theme can be a love theme, you finish your melody with the same theme and just before the end a melody of victory maybe. All together it's make me to think about one beatifull italian movie "Pirates Blood Brothers" - your music is very representive for this story. The only thing that from myself i would like to see different - it's maybe one small part between the principal themes (excuse my english: when you go from one theme to another on 3:00).
