I hear the ovation in there? I thought you planned to add vocals near the end, or am I thinking of a different song?

Ovation
I put the Ovation in and decided against vocals. Thanks for listening, Sam. I am going to check out Cowboy Tom.

Cheers, Dick
David suggested it sounded like a life, what with all the twists and turns and the return to a version of the opening sounds. I tend to agree with him.

Contemporary prog!
Gorgeous piece! Simply gorgeous...

Perhaps a second version WITH vocals?

Maybe
Kids' voices at the beginning and angels at the end? Sounds like a plan! Thanks for the encouragement, Mr W.

One more thing...
perhaps too lovely to be called a "Dirge"?

Dirge
I liked the intro, but, for mine, it went on a few rounds too long and kept me from the tasty guitar work to follow. Thenceforth it was a highly engaging piece. Ever-mutating, yes, but still with many of the family traits on display - smooth, melodic and classy. Lovely stuff, you two. Thanks.

Going for it
Nice mood piece - letting the music take you to where it wants to go - and letting it have the time it needs to do so.

That's the idea
I don't have any Frippertronics, but they were in the back of my mind when I did this. Cheers, Warren.
