An orchestra is indeed necessary,
a proper performance of this work to carry.
In 1805, to prove that light was a wave,
Thomas Young the method unto us gave.
I can't say enough about Mr. Young in my rhyme.
He decifered Hieroglyphs in his spare time.
He wrote many works, though it is said, indeed,
that the hieroglyphs were much easier to read!
In the year Mr. Young performed his light-wave caper,
this work had yed to appear on paper.
Regarding the soloist, or shall I say more,
for several can be found throughout the score,
No single instrument always in the spotlight there be,
though sometimes one, or two, or three.
