Product details

The score is marked, "Slow and Spacious", and "Maestoso (In Wonder)" - with the refrain becoming ever-more decorated on each return. Despite the subject matter, the mood of the refrain is more one of glory and awe, rather than mere dolefuleness. The intimate verses, by contrast, are marked, "Teneramente e sostenuto" ("Tenderly and sustained"). Abridged versions of Woefully Arrayed can be performed by commencing the work from either the Second or Third Refrain.
