I love this piece - really.
I don't think it is empty... it's just right !
The piano is not so really my thing... would love it a littlebit brighter - but melody sounds good!
In my opinion this song one is really great and I love it much more than older ones from you - it fits my taste

some great sounds and the piano is pefectly acceptable in this mix..love to hear it with a vocal..that would be awesome!!!

This sounds pretty epic even on my laptop speakers, which is quite an achievement. A female vocal could definitely work - not sure how you'd balance that with the choral vocals but I'll look forward to finding out.

1st violins, 2nd violins, violas, cellos, double bass. Nothing is playing divisi. The cello generally doubles the double bass and the 2nd violins generally double the 1st violins an octave lower for the reasoning that the extremes of low and high pitch are too distant from the rest of the notes.

I found the strings only version pretty insightful, again no where near a fair comparison to these sh*tty HALion SE samples I'm working with. I'm a big fan of the underlying rhythm you used with Stormdrum; it definitely added urgency.
