My first upload! I made this today, it's an original piece and obviously I've written it because I read Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen. Such a touching story. I really hope I got the right emotion with my music. I heard there's a film being made. Good cast. Hope the producers hear it. If you know of said producers and think this is the right stuff for the movie, please let them know! :-) Otherwise, enjoy.
As for musical themes in this, you should know that the first theme is the main theme. I have used a boy's choir to represent old Jacob going back to the past (and later returning). I am limited on circus noises, this is more of an emotional piece instead. The 2nd theme is Rosie's theme, then August appears to scare her. Then the sweeping theme for Jacob and Marlena, followed by the "Wonders of the Travelling Circus" theme for everybody in the book, as well as the climax. Then Jacob returns to the present (notice that boy's choir very quickly), and the realisation that he is old and alone. So, the main theme suggests... well, the ending to the book (which I won't spoil) and the main theme again, this time with all of the instruments previously used. The end.

I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did creating it, and reading the book.
