Edition notes: arr. Solo Tenor and Brass ensemble. The instrumental sonorities emphasize conical brass (flugelhorns or cornets preferred). Solo oboe and/or solo muted trumpet may be added to, or substituted for, the tenor voice. Accompaniment instrumentation is two flugelhorns/cornets, three horns, two trombones, two euphoniums, and tuba. The arranger chose to wed the music with the most ancient available text: the current scholarly edition of the Nestle-Aland Greek text (NA28). In addition to the Greek, this arrangement provides an English text that might be performed instead, or in addition to, the Greek. Transposed to E-flat.
