Two Sopranos and piano and/or piano with mixed ensemble

This version was written for a specific instrumentation for an upcoming concert, but the instrumentation is elastic – I am more than happy to change/add parts to this, if you are interested in the mixed ensemble parts. Nonetheless, this version works fine with two singers and piano.
