Here is the 99% completed work.

I tried to enhance it's fullness and forward movement.

Hope you find it enjoyable.

Your adagio does sound more complete. It now feels like a interlude, like something that could be used as incidental music for a play or a movie cue.

The harmony works well to create a gentle, elegiac ambiance.

A nice piece, thought, as Jay said, this feels like an interlude and to me doesn't have the heft needed to be a standalone piece.

However, the handling of the material is done well in terms of creating, as Jay said, an elegiac feel.

I do think that the material could be well served by adding a little a bit more deepness (for lack of a better term) to the current material as well as adding a contrasting (perhaps even more emotive) section (not that there's anything wrong with what you've presented here).
Information is not knowledge. Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom is not truth. Truth is not beauty. Beauty is not love. Love is not music. Music is THE BEST.
