"The work itself it quite charming, simply floating around several related keys from the tonic (G major) with several added notes and suspensions (e.g. added D in E minor at 0:23).
With the appearance of the oboe at 0:42, we get a sliver of chromaticism with an E minor chord progressing to an implied diminished-7th chord on F#/Eb which smoothly modulates back to the tonic of G major. A cosy little progression!
1:19 is the climax of the track, expanding on the opening material with even more added notes (e.g. measure 45 at 1:43 is a G major chord with the added 2nd (A) 4th (C) and 6th (E) - a very gospel-esque chord!).
There was a stringed instrument tremoloing in the left channel, and I couldn't decide whether it was a guitar tremolandi or a zither instrument. So I simply rested on using a zither here (as I have better samples for that!), but it may well be played on a guitar."
