Here's an album of mine from 3 years ago which I'd almost forgotten about. It's free to download.

From the sleeve notes which the Netlabel's owner wrote:

"Elegy [el-i-jee] noun, plural elegies.
A mournful, melancholy, or plaintive poem, especially a funeral song or a lament for the dead.

Tim Rowe’s suite of short, exquisitely mournful elegies are dedicated to all who mourn, all who have lost someone or something precious to them.

Just as Henryk Gorecki’s third symphony brings considerable comfort to those in pain, my hope is that in some small way this suite will bring comfort too."

Thanks. Very kind of you Kyle.

@tim I suspect so. Saving it for a quiet writing session later tonight.

Thanks for the boost!

@tim So I followed this trail and now thanks to you I'm listening to Olafur Arnalds.

@tim I'm kind of late 'cause I've been busy, but I wanted to listen to it and so did I.

I really like how peaceful yet sorrowful it sounds. The simplicity of it is surely what makes it so concise and raw. The chords long as the song goes and the progressions are subtle, making the thoughts of the listener become almost a sort of meditation - or rather a reflection of their past.

Really liked how you were able to put different tastes of emotion into each one of the 4 parts. Bravo!

@MatheusRV
I really appreciate the feedback, Matheus. Thanks for taking the time to listen. :)
