(Note: All presets have the automatic bass switched off and the Tempomat disabled to allow the standard tempos to be
modified. The rhythm section is always set to Synchron Start for all the presets requiring rhythm so that it triggers when
the pedals or Lower Manual are played. No automatic intros or endings are used. Some of the sounds have been moved
up or down an octave or more as indicated below: +8va up one octave, +16va up two octaves, -8va down one octave and
-16va down two octaves.)

The String introduction is all played on the Lower Manual except for the Brightness/Kalimba infill notes at the end, which
are played on the Upper Manual. The last String note of the introduction is played with the thumb of the right hand on
the Lower Manual to allow the middle and fourth finger of the right hand to play the infill Brightness/Kalimba notes on the
Upper Manual. The main theme is then played on English Horn on the Upper Manual below the split point with a moving
chord String backing played on the Lower Manual. The moving chord is created by playing the route chord, then the
major seventh, then the sixth chord then the route again as the four beats in the bar. The Brightness/Kalimba infills,
which appear in the song, are all played in the same way as the introduction by holding the English Horn note on the
Upper Manual with the thumb and playing the infills with the fourth and little finger of the right hand above the split point.
The middle section of the song is all played on String on the Lower Manual before returning to the Upper Manual for the
English Horn Theme. The end of the song is played on String on the Lower Manual.

The main theme is played on the Upper Manual. The Lower Manual is split at D4 with Classical Large Strings set on
both Lower 1 and Lower 2. The Hold Lower function is also engaged. Splitting the keyboard allows a chord to be played
first on the Lower Manual below the split point and held, which frees up the left hand to play the String counter melody
above the split point on the Lower Manual, which is not held. The Upper 3 Trompete Muted sound is switched off
manually for the middle section of the song, and then switched on again for the end section. The drum section of the
automatic backing is also switched off.
