Unlike many other Broadway shows, Stephen Schwartz's musical take on the last days of Jesus is scored for a small combo rather than orchestra, which makes this piano reduction hardly a reduction at all. From the raunchy barrelhouse swagger of "Turn Back, O Man" to the soft-shoe of "All for the Best" and the gorgeous lyricism of "Day by Day" and "All Good Gifts," this book is full of fun-to-play selections. Also included is "Beautiful City," a number written for the film. --David Horiuchi

As an example of how slovenly the engraving is, consider the word "Stained!" in "We Beseech Thee". In the first place, it doesn't read "Stained!", it reads "Strained!". But, more than that, it's on two notes, so what the score is actually telling you to sing is "Strainèd!".
