Each of the four movements may be performed independently of the rest of the work, as short, stand-alone orchestral compositions by their individual movement names. Note that the various movements have slightly differing instrumental requirements. When played separately, they may require a smaller orchestra than the forces that are needed to perform all four movements of Jubilee.
