This is an interesting vocal quartet written in the late 1800’s for Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass with piano accompaniment. It’s not too difficult with the exception of sixteen measures written in the key of F#. Even the fourth trumpet player gets a chance at a short solo. If you are looking for something in an operatic style this might fill the need.
