Nicely done Riccled smile Really calming and peaceful to the ears, and I enjoyed the progressions here. You did a good job on the MIDI work here too.

Thanks for sharing!

I assume "...playing the bass,the solo cor anglais,the strings and the choir parts..." are samples via a keyboard.
I think you could soften the strings with some EQ and reverb as they sound samplish.
A calming, gentle, pastoral piece. Nice one!
