Extremely accomplished writing there henk. Vater unser I enjoyed how you broke up the phrases before creating a longer line. Harmonies interesting - reminds me of Frank Martin and a more tonal Poulenc with some more modern currents. Can tell too you know your Bach cantatas. To pull off the final cadence (believe minor V to major I) after the chords with the added 2nds and 4ths preceding and seemingly moving off to a chromatic tangent was excellent.
