Nice.  It would have been perhaps also nice to have a bit more presence
on the instruments though :)  If only for a bit more balance between
voice and instruments.  The instruments uplifting the voice without any
volume adjustments.

If I may continue on with the remarks, and on with the reverb...

Basically, I find that the reverb is intrusive and even has some hisses
at times.  I would have liked to hear a reverb that is natural sounding,
carrying warmth and a tad of depth, while still giving the feeling of
space.  As if the reverb could actually reflect the material of the
walls, the wood they are made with.

Please bear in mind that there is a difference in criticism between the
artistic effort and what we could call the 'production' technical
aspect.  On the artistic side it is very good :)
