- Edition notes: The full score functions as an organ score. The specified wind and string doublings were what was available at the first performance. Separate part scores for these doublings are also attached here. Feel free to substitute instruments, or even (less ideally) perform with just organ. The specification of the solo/semichorus as S1A1T2B2 is an artifact of the typesetting process and not to be taken literally. The recording is of a different orchestration used for the second performance.
