Originally composed by Pavel Chesnokov in 1912, "Salvation is Created" seemed perfectly suitable to be arranged for bass clarinet ensemble. Some hairpin crescendos and decrescendos have been added, as well as some breath marks to help with the phrasing. However, if the players are simply reminded that it was originally a choral piece, the phrasing will come naturally.
