Symphony of the Tiny Birds - s/t (Canyon C-1011, Japan, LP, 197?)

No info online about this one.  Just a random find that I liked from my favourite Sydney bookshop with hidden vinyl trove.

It's classical/romantic/pastoral, atmospheric, and heavy on the birdsounds.  In fact it would barely be worth playing if not for the birdsongs.  Sounds like a soundtrack composition with four parts Spring/Summer/Autumn/Winter, each of 10 mins.  Not unlike a Miyazaki soundtrack.

Feel free to translate the liner notes (and poem).  Who are the k. ochida / y. ochida referenced for the poetry?

Where does this fit into the Canyon discography too (which is a bit confusing to me)?
