The musical and spatial effects employed in this work allow the listener to experience the Biblical story on which it is based. Although it is a very exciting work in its entirety, each movement can be played separately. I especially appreciate how motives from all three movements are related. I have conducted this work on several occasions, including a concert tour, and it always blows the audience away.
2 Bb Clarinets (only for bassoon cues)
1 Bb Bass Clarinet
1 Eb Contra Alto Clarinet (optional part)
1 Bb Contra Bass Clarinet
2 Alto saxophones echo the euphonium solo from rear corners of the hall (behind audience).
Brass blowing air through horns (wind effect)
Euphonium featured soloist entire movement
Piano (or high quality electronic keyboard to simulate piano if touring)
Several extra people to twirl "whistling" tubes behind audience
