    I'm looking for interpretive and/or technical insight/suggestions for the percussion parts (clavés and bass drum) in the Arvo Part "Fratres for Strings and Percussion".  From listening to YouTube recordings, it seems pretty straight ahead, cut & dried. But on the percussion part I received, there are very faint, mostly unreadable erased performance notes(?) which seem to indicate the use of a variety of mallets/strikers....even mention of what looks like a suspended cymbal??? Huh?  Please....your experience and insight is requested! Thank you!
