I play chords on the piano.
It will be much easier to play this on guitar if you transpose down one half step 
and play with a capo on 1.

Very useful. I'm playing it tap style on a bass and this is just the trick.

I love this piece. Recently I had the privilege to work with Whitacre himself in my choir and preform Seal Lullaby, Sleep, and Glow. He's very pleasant, and a blast to work with. He even signed my copy of Seal Lullaby!
