  1. Piccolo, flute, clarinet, soprano saxophone, alto saxophone
  2. Flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone
  3. Oboe, clarinet, tenor saxophone
  4. Clarinet, bass clarinet [to low D], baritone saxophone [to low A]


  1. Updated per information received from Richard Krishnan

  2. David Benedict says:

    Reed 1 has some oboe marked but this is a misprint. Play on flute.

  3. Andrew Uren says:

    New Touring version has come out
    Reed 1: Piccolo, flute,clarinet,alto sax,
    Reed 2: Flute, clarinet, tenor sax
    Reed 3: Clarinet, bass clarinet, baritone sax

    • Andrew Uren says:

      Should add:
      Reed 3:Baritone sax needs a low A
      Bass clarinet is only in two numbers and doesn’t need low C
      Flutes don’t need extensions.

      I am currently touring in New Zealand. This new touring lineup came out in 2013 from UK.

    • Bret Pimentel says:

      Added as new listing. Thank you!

  4. Tom Kmiecik says:

    The Reed 4 part in this version requires bass clarinet to low D and baritone sax to low A.

  5. Bret Pimentel says:

    Updated to remove flute from reed 4, based on information received from Merilee Updike.

  6. Brett Bachus says:

    A friend of mine asked me what B. B. meant in the Reed 3 score. I assume it is an instrument change. Can you please help me explain it? Thank you

    • David Benedict says:

      Players often pencil in BB to mean ‘Big breath’.
      Not usually found in the printed part though.

      • Brett Bachus says:

        It actually is printed in the score. I’m happy to send an example. To bad I can’t simply post the picture here.

  7. Matthew Heitkamp says:

    I just played the rental of this show and the reed parts go as followed:
    Reed One: Piccolo, Flute, Bb Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, (and maybe Soprano Saxophone)
    Reed Two: Flute, Bb Clarinet, Alto Saxophone
    Reed Three: Bb Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone
    Reed Four: Bb Clarinet, Bass Clarinet and Baritone Saxophone down to low A.

    Maybe the editon has changed, but that is also the list on MTI shows.

    • Bret Pimentel says:

      Updated to reflect what appears to be a new rental edition. I removed soprano saxophone from reed 1 as shown on MTI’s website, and left reed 4’s bass clarinet low D indication, but I welcome continued corrections/updates. Thanks–

      • Alex Radcliffe says:

        I’m playing Reed 3 in this at the moment (the MTI rental), and this is how the parts are:

        Reed One: Piccolo, Flute, Bb Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Soprano Saxophone
        Reed Two: Flute, Bb Clarinet, Alto Saxophone
        Reed Three: Bb Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone,
        Reed Four: Bb Clarinet, Bass Clarinet and Baritone Saxophone down to low A.

        The Soprano Sax in Reed One is only in “Moses Supposes”, but it is very prominent there.
        Reed Two also has a line written for Tenor Saxophone, but this isn’t listed in the front of the part, and could very easily be transposed and played on alto.
        Reed Three has Oboe in Moses Supposes for about 5 bars, which could be easily omitted, but it is definitely present (and is listed at the front).

  8. Todd Huffer says:

    What a riot! I am playing the MTI rental marked “National” right now, and the parts are:
    1. Picc, fl, clar, sop, alto
    2. Fl, clar, alto, “tenor” (2 bars (or was it 4?) the entire show! He’s just transp. 8vb, it’s doubled exactly on clar in Reed 3)
    3. Fl (very little except ‘Singin’ Finale), clar, tenor, oboe (tiny nonsensical part easily transposed)
    4. Clar, bass, bari

    This messy score/parts desperately need the love and care/attention I just don’t think it’s ever going to get.
