    This piece is not for the faint-of-heart, flimsy, wimpish, or underdeveloped musician and that goes double for the director! Needs a fierce, commanding, passionate gifted leader lucky enough to possess a solid, extremely musical, smart & sensitive group of equally matched SATB voices. And please don't EVEN waste...

    your choir or audience's time by not using the brass score...except for rehearsal period, of course, I wouldn't dream of not having outstanding horn players on this piece. Some fabulous, rich, evocative melodies and themes.... great piece to end a concert with!
