First, a choice of accompaniments is available: either piano or organ, or better still, handbells. The handbell part conveniently lists a recommended division of notes for eight ringers. The obbligato solo part may be played by flute, alto recorder, or any other available C-instrument. The music is simple enough to allow a younger primary choir to sing one of the parts. If your group is large enough, the choir could divide, and then sing the optional 2-part writing at the end. Another possibility would be to use this work in a choir festival where two or more choirs participate.
