Description A chorale-style arrangement of Elgar's classic hymn from 'Enigma Variations'. In this arrangement, marimba 1 plays the melody with tremolo, 2 mallets, and marimba 2 plays the accompaniment with 4 mallets. The speed of the tremolos must be tightly matched to avoid strange undulations in the ripple of notes (this is notated). I imagined both marimbas to be 4.3 octave, but actually marimba 1's part could fit on a 4 octave with the lowest pitch being F below middle C.
