I don’t have them but I would say Adventure Strings is probably a best fit. Complementary articulations, same string section and setup :)

I love the original Dark Crystal Score. So magical.

Thanks for providing the midi file.
Interesting to find out how it sounds when using it with the libraries I have (maybe a bit different, but I hope not to much). Hopefully I have time for that during the christmas holidays.

About your midi mockup, maybe I am wrong, but it appears that the tempo is static?
If so, you can breath even more live in your mockup by changing the tempo gradually during the whole piece (both speeding up and slowing down). Maybe you could add the original soundtrack audio as an extra track in your DAW, playing it together with your midi tracks and find out where the original piece does speed up or slow down and draw those changes in a tempo track.

@RobbertZH : Thanks !
I usually add some tempo variations on my mockups, but you're right : not in this one. If I remember correctly, I had awful CPU/performances issues when doing so. I'm working on a laptop with 24gb of RAM and a CPU that starts to get old, so sometimes it gets a bit tired :)
