We all know the thrill of singing this great work with a full orchestra, but the original version isn't exactly designed for children's voices. That's why Paul Jennings has created a new setting of this classic especially developed for young choirs. It is in a lower key, and is arranged for two treble voices. There is a superb recording featuring full orchestra with both full-performance and accompaniment-only tracks. There are also special rehearsal tracks to help each part learn the music. There is also added a short, special prologue with an air of anticipation and an optional narration. The recording is designed so that you can perform the work with the prologue or with the original opening to the work.
Orchestra parts are downloadable from www.musick8.com. This arrangement is not meant for a beginning orchestra but rather a fairly good school or community orchestra.
Reproducible student parts included.
