Beautiful and satisfying. Does it use lyrics?

Thanks.
It does use lyrics, but it is nonsense lyrics, words without meaning which you can choose from.
It's a quite limited "vocabulary" actually.

I just wish there existed a similar choir with similar dynamics, but with the ability to write your very own lyrics, even if it is latin only. But choirs with custom lyrics are VERY expensive and doesn't come with that range of dynamics and easy playability.

Enjoyed it...

The rise and fall of the melodic phrases work well.

Underlying harmonies are all appropriate but a little 'safe' for some tastes?

Thank you very much, ChameleonMusic.
As for the underlying harmonies, well, I did try creating some tiny dissonant voicing.

Hopefully I'll get better at using dissonant harmonies, too much of it ruins the piece, too little makes it boring.

You might want to avoid the short little piece I'm about to post then?

It's not exactly 'mainstream' in it's underlying harmonies1 :borg: :oops: :help: :ud: :evil:
