This looks like a shot from long ago Oliver . Gets my award for the story and peaceful view down that long stately road. Only suggestion would be to crop out some the road in the foreground in front of the cycling undertaker ,
Stay well
Best regards

Gravedigger: Faith, if he be not rotten before he die—as we have many pocky corses nowadays that will scarce hold the laying in— he will last you some eight year or nine year. A tanner will last you nine year.
Hamlet: Why he more than another?
Gravedigger: Why, sir, his hide is so tanned with his trade that he will keep out water a great while, and your water is a sore decayer of your whoreson dead body. Here’s a skull now. This skull has lain in the earth three-and-twenty years.
(Hamlet Act V Sc 1)

Super street image and with the story, it increases the interest in the picture. A nice long straight street with not much going on, except for the principal figure. It sounds like a whose-who of the classical composer's world. I would agree with a bit off the foreground.

He looks like a real character, not merely learned in his trade but in his understanding and humanity.
Our local gravedigger is a small mechanical excavator on caterpillar tracks. It is utterly devoid of character and only understands instructions conveyed by levers.
Such is progress.
