Sirba plus Myriad Pro or Sirba plus Soliel?

Please share your thoughts on the pairing of the following as a serif (text type) and sans serif (display and caption type) combination for a small book of photo-graphic/typographic images:
1 Sirba and Soliel
2 Sirba and Myriad Pro

My initial interest is in the complementary relationship of Sirba and Myriad Pro in terms of ascender height, x-height, character width, friendliness and readability. However, Soliel "feels" like a hybrid of Myriad Pro and Avenir that may be a bit more complementary.

I appreciate any feedback based on your experiences with these typefaces.

Thank you,

PS: Attached sample is Myriad Pro and Avenir for Display and Constantia for Text to come as close as possible to the intended type pairing ... until I purchase Sirba and/or Soliel.

If you have the budget, Soleil would have the advantage of being fresher than an ubiquitous workhorse like myriad.
