Castle Garden

I'm long overdue on posting, but since I have more free time on my hands recently, it's time to get back to business.

This started out as a Quartet in D, then had full orchestral strings added along with piano and glockenspiel, so I went with calling it "Castle Garden" in the end because it has that meandering through the palace grounds sort of feel to it.  Also, my daughter informs me that the glockenspiel and harp definitely give it that 'fairy princess' vibe.  A bit emasculating, really, but I'm sure she means well.

The description listed online is as follows...

A relaxing, but upbeat orchestral song I imagined as a soundtrack for wandering around and enjoying a beautiful classical garden. It uses both orchestral and solo stringed instruments, harp, piano, and glockenspiel. Solo instruments include the violin, viola, cello, and harp.

I also included "pastoral" as one of the key words, even though no one in the world will every search for a song using that term.  But it IS pastoral - and I would use it as a search term.
