||A beautiful slow piece, originally for two four-voice choirs. If playing this, try to sit in two choirs so you can hear them "talk" to each other.
Cello 1/Cello 4: Entirely in treble clef
Cello 2/Cello 5: Entirely in tenor clef
Cello 3/Cello 6: Bass clef, shifting up to second position
Cello 4/Cello 8: Bass clef, first position
Cello 3,4,6,8 could be played by advanced beginners with excellent counting skills. All parts are rhythmically independent and there is a meter change.
