The vocal part is identical to the original. The oboe and horn parts come mostly from Mahler's orchestration, with the horn taking the big English horn solo in #3. The piano part is the same as in the original piano/vocal score with the important oboe and horn parts subtracted. The vocalist may prefer to work from the piano/vocal score.
