These are the changes made by Larry Byler to his Utopia piano-vocal score for Version 2.0. They are provided for the merely curious, and for those who would prefer to print out only changed pages instead of the entire score.

Changes fall into three broad categories: minor respacing (moving notes and lyrics for better readability), supplying previously omitted formatting (second repeat endings, missing tempi, etc.), and note and lyric changes and additions. I have grouped the total set of changes within one of these three, so that those who are interested only in note changes, for example, do not have to search for them among the formatting changes.

Each reference includes a page number. Except for the final two entries, this is the printed page number, not the pdf page number. Most references also include a staff number on that page, and a measure number of that staff. The notation format is page/staff/measure number. For example: 23/2/2 means (printed) Page 23, second staff on the page, second measure of the second staff.
