Misc. Comments

The sax parts are unspecified in Part 1, though they are all in treble clef. In Part 2, alt/ten/bar are specified; the ten/bar parts are in bass clef, and the alto sax part goes out of range. Undoubtedly, the score is in concert pitch, not written pitch. Later in Part 2, the specification is bar/ten/bar. Part 3 starts with the specification alto/tenor/sop (in that order), later changing to alto (top line), 2 sopranos (2nd and 3rd line). Part 4 starts alt/ten/sop (in that order), changing to sop/ten/bar.
