This version of the new Hymn: Darkness Hath No Bounds Op. 32 is scored for slower, quiet playing rather than leading congregational singing.
Secondary manuals are used in this variant of the score (photo), one of which (marked II in the score) is registered for a color reed solo to bring out the imitations which appear briefly in the tenor voice as it follows the soprano through the first three lines of the hymn.
This continues through the final line of the hymn where the hymn's first few notes are repeated in the tenor voice and brought out using this color reed.
This variant of the score also has a fifth voice added at the end to fill out the harmony in the final chord.
