When first learning the songs it is easiest to have a script handy to see who sings which parts of each song.
1) The Ramayana Human Narrators, Demon Narrators, Grandmother; one line by Vibishina, Lakshmana, and Rama
2) Bazaar Song Ayodhyan Villagers [this song ties in immediately from the end of The Ramayana]

These next five tracks are the individual voices for We Will Go On from the last half of the song. We've added these because some students will find it easiest to practice from these recordings. We do recommend them striving to sing with the five-part version (#15) as well to practice the timing of their entrances.
