Thanks for your feedback, glad you enjoyed it!
I used stock bank instruments, with several adjustments in terms of 
effects, envelopes, volume, pan, velocity sensitivity settings etc. 
Certain attack times took really lots of fiddling to be how I wanted 
them... In some cases the tweaking is really minor.
For the 'tubular bell' sound I actually started from a ZynAddSubFX 
patch, but it was producing some weird 'noise', so I essentially 
re-built it.

By the way the piece is CC-NC-SA licensed so I'd be happy to also share 
both the Yoshimi state file and the Rosegarden file if anyone is interested.
