Ranges for the soloists are not difficult, with the exception of Joseph’s tenor part in No. 12 “Look on Me This Day—Duet.” Choruses range from unison (all voices singing the melody) to 12 parts. The letters in the table indicate the choral parts for each piece: S=soprano, A=alto, T=tenor, and B=bass. The repetition of letters indicates additional separate voices for that part: SS=2 soprano parts. For instance, SATB=soprano, alto, tenor, and bass parts, while SSSAAATTTBBB=3 soprano parts, 3 alto parts, 3 tenor parts, and 3 bass parts.

* These two pieces are sung without a break in the music. The audio track for No. 11: “There Are Rules—Reprise” contains the introduction (measures 1–4). The rest of the accompaniment for “There Are Rules—Reprise” is part of the No. 12: “Look on Me This Day—Duet” audio track.
+ Because these two pieces are performed without a break, the audio file contains both of them.
