Scored for SATB chorus and piano 4-hands, the strong, legato chorus is driven by the marcato accompaniment to a magnificent conclusion in this best-selling piece. Optional string quartet accompaniment may play along with the piano duet for added energy and articulation. (A full performance/accompaniment compact disc, using the string quartet is available from Beckenhorst.) A full orchestration is also available; piano duet part may play along with the full orchestration if desired, but is not required.
