Many thanks for taking the time to read the score and listen to the MIDI version!

A performance would be nice!  8)

It's very expressive. I like the way the harmonies flow-- shifting in intensity. Good work!

As a general rule, the harmonic function comes from the contrapuntal possibilities in the melodies: this is limited in the sections using only three notes (C#, E, G), but even there - I believe - a certain expressive power comes through.
