Arrangement

The preparation and adaptation of an already written musical composition for presentation in other than its original form. The detailed instructions for how instruments, sounds and voices are to be used. The arrangement dictates what is played, when it is played and how it is played (usually via written music charts or other direction). This can include a new and distinctly unique version of a Public Domain musical work.
