- Edition notes: The sopranos sing up to D above C above mid C and down to A below mid C: if too low, they can speak or whisper. They are soon reinforced. The altos may sing up to the same D or drop the 2nd phrase down, as needed. I've marked it to choose. The male voices are neither tenor nor bass, but baritone. Please transpose the score if you need to. MusicXML source file is in compressed .mxl format.
