Thanks for your query.In his liner notes Kiviniemi says the original 1927 score - used in the first eight section of the piece recorded here - has no voices. I can only assume the vocal element was added later, probably for the inauguration of the Helsinki Freemasons' new pipe organ in 1947.
So what Kiviniemi gives us is a hybrid score, albeit all in the composer's own hand. It's a remarkable disc and a valuable addition to the Sibelius discography.
