This is the FULL version of Mozart’s "Laudate Dominum", from the "Vesperae de Confessore", K. 339, as arranged for soprano and string quartet. For a wedding I was asked to do an abridged arrangement of this movement (originally for soprano soloist with SATB chorus) for soprano alone with string quartet. The abridgement was to include only the solo soprano parts. In this FULL version, I have the soprano singing the text of the chorus as well. Because this is the FULL version, with the COMPLETE text, it is suitable for liturgical use. This is the recommended version.

BTW, this is the arrangement that was used in the BBC television series Doc Martin (starring Martin Clunes) in Series 3, Episode 5, at roughly 12 minutes into the program.
