Based on the hymn tune Jefferson, this arrangement can be done with organ alone, but is greatly enhanced by using either flute or oboe (not both), cello, and percussion. The multiple divisi basically applies to drones and sustained chords, so this would not preclude doing it with a smaller choir. The setting effectively evokes mystery and longing.
