This arrangement is different in that it utiilizes only 2 sizes of melodica: the Suzuki Pro 37 Alto and the B-24 Bass. Aside from some octave shifting in the bass parts, there wasn't any transcription necessary to fit within these ranges. The parts are covered as follows:

Organ solo: Alto melodica
Organ bass: Bass melodica
Trumpets 1, 2 and 3: Alto melodica
Violins 1, 2 and Viola: Alto melodica
Cello / Bass: Bass melodica

I am reading the score on my laptop, which is why I occasionally use the computer keyboard to turn pages. I also chose to switch between using the direct blow tube and the flexible mouthpiece. The flexible mouthpiece allows me to play the instrument with both hands, which can be necessary for more virtuosic parts, such as the organ solo in this piece. For trumpet parts, I always use the direct blow mouthpiece since it results in a sound and affect that is closest to the trumpet. The bass melodica has such a delay for the larger reeds, that its not possible to use the flexible tube - one isnt even included with the instrument!
