This digital download includes sheet music (PDF) for solo piano and the reference recording (MP3) of the demo. Note: the sheet music requires an advanced level of technical skill. A simplified more intermediate version is also included. This version simplifies the 32nd note and 16th triplet runs toward the end of the piece to 16th notes.
You might also like Piano/Cello version which features the piano playing most of the melodic material while the cello plays an accompaniment role with beautifully written countermelodies. A similar Piano/Violin version is also available. You can find them at the links above.
It Is Well - Piano - Performance Accompaniment Track
This download includes a split-track which has a metronome click & count-in cue panned LEFT while the string track is panned RIGHT. Use this if you plan to perform with in-ear monitors. You will will need to have an earbud in one or both of your ears so that you can follow the click while the audience hears the strings. You (or your sound person) need a stereo splitter (as low as $5) to send separate signals from the headphone jack of your computer or mobile device to your earbuds and to your speaker system. If you have a sound person, he or she will probably already have what you need. More info with diagram below.
The track lines up perfectly with your sheet music. You will hear four clicks then a count-in. You first note comes in on the "and of 2".

More about using Split-Tracks
First, you are going to need a device that is going to play your click and backing tracks. If you are a beginner, the simplest device to use is a laptop, iPhone or iPad.
The cheapest piece of gear to split the signal coming from your phone, tablet, or laptop, is this 3.5mm TRS to dual quarter inch cable you’ll find on Amazon for five bucks. You’ll plug the 3.5mm TRS end into your device and then plug the red and black quarter ends inch into two separate channels on your mixer. The Red will be the right channel containing the backing tracks, and the Black will be the left channel containing the click. If you would rather have your phone on stage, then you will need a stereo DI box which you can plug the dual quarter inch ends into, and then out of the box you will have two XLR cables that run to your stage snake and then to your soundboard.
Now that the signal from the smartphone is at the soundboard, you need to send the click and backing tracks to your musician's in-ear monitors.
