Wow! That is one hell of a performance!  Great work! I think the performance could use some more colors but other than that, fantastic. Keep it up!

Thanks. Yes, one of the problems I think with this paraphrase is that it is somewhat bombastic, full steam ahead, and finding places (after the initial prayer theme) to let up and inject a little calm and extra colour isn't straightforward. Perhaps the sections around the four minute mark and 4.30-5.00 provide an opportunity to be more expansive or expressive. Thanks again for listening!
