Very nice ... but a few quick observations:
   - cantus is lost (muddied) during harmonization(s)
   - pedal point in second harmonization didn't always "work", although 
that is my objective perspective
   - coda was contemplative and enjoyable.

I thoroughly enjoyed the harmonizations: wonderful fusion of period and 
modern styles.

thanks for sharing.
