Composer’s Note: chorus remains unseen but heard at the beginning and end sections, and visible during the narrative and introductions to each miracle. Choral Part is generally written unison throughout; its size and gender is left to the discretion of the director. This Part might conceivably be sung by One Singer, provided the voice is sufficiently amplified.
Recommended classification for One Solo Singer (Chorus) = SUPPORTING.
