Here is my latest offering - Serenade on an English Folk Song. Written over the last couple of days around the melody of "My Robin is to the Greenwood Gone", an English folk song c. 1580.

Stately and Modest
English ballads are like English women hu? The Greenwood is gone my friend or so the moderns would tell us. The textural changes at 2:20 work wonderfully. Your arrangement might stray too much from the longing for the past axis for the purest, but the work is outstanding! Always a great listen. Thank you for sharing your work with us.

Nicely done!
I thought I'd left a comment before but it's gone...

Never mind.

An interesting and involving arrangementand the shift in tone is a little suprising but it works.

Cheers
