Post Passion Instrumentation?
Hey all,

I was wondering if someone could link me to a place, or tell me what instruments are used in Passion? I've done some searching and most of the time the sites that list the CD liner notes omit the orchestra pit - I can't check my own as I don't own the recording (yet). I'm particularly interested in how the orchestra was set up in the Donmar production late last year, but reading the original would be better than nothing.

Thanks for your time,
Sam

Thank you very much! I'll be sure to check that site for any other questions about instruments I have too. I suppose there must have been several keyboards in the Donmar production.

Thanks again.
