11 parts -- Choir 1 Soprano, Choir 1 Alto, Choir 1 Tenor; Choir 2 Soprano, Choir 2 Alto, Choir Tenor; Ensemble Soprano, Ensemble Alto, Ensemble Tenor, Ensemble Baritone, Ensemble Bass
NOTE: Here's the way the parts on the recording are distributed on these tracks:
"Choir 1" is the boys choir
"Choir 2" is the main gospel choir
"Ensemble" includes the Take 6 part, the African choir, and the background gospel choir
There is one place in the song where the African choir is singing words that are not English. I couldn't find any sources that showed the words they were saying, so I'm singing made-up syllables that sound approximately the same.
The Latin words that the boys choir sings at the end are "Hosanna in latissimus".
