This version is for string quartet. The first song, "Thus Saith the Lord", features the cello accompanied by the other three instruments. The second, "But Who May Abide", features the first violin as solo and the cello as continuo, with the full quartet playing the ripieno. The finale, "Hallelujah Chorus", gives all four instruments equal time in the spotlight. The first song has been transposed to E minor to accommodate the lowest note of the cello. The other two songs keep their original keys.
