  • Tomorrow Shall Be My Dancing Day – Trombone Quartet

    This traditional English carol first appeared in 1833, but it likely much older. Its origin is most likely in the medieval mystery play, which represented the Bible stories as tableaux with accompanying antiphonal songs. Many composers have arranged this traditional tune, including Gustav Holst and Igor Stravinsky.

    Composer: Bill Reichenbach
    Instrumentation: 3 Tenor Trombones and 1 Bass Trombone
    Duration/# of Pages: ca. 2:10 / 20 pages, 8.5″ x 11″
    Key: Bb – C (no key sig)

  • Tuba & 12 – Mixed Large Ensemble

    Tuba & 12 was inspired by a Bedouin proverb that states: “While the words are yet unspoken, you are master of them; when once they are spoken, they are master of you.”

    Proverbs, in general, state a general piece of advice. This piece assumed that words were spoken, resulting in tension and an apology. Relationships, the first movement, has brass vs. woodwinds, tonality vs. dissonance, duples vs. triplets, et al. as well as the synergy and cooperation among all. Unspoken Words is the second movement and the dissonant opening theme in the piccolo and flute is presented three times. The third movement is Resolution. Over a constant low pedal G, the horn ostinato adds tranquility as all the themes from the first two movements return in fragmented form, before all is finally resolved.

    Although tuba has top billing in the title, each instrument is equally important.

    The sample score shows the first page of each of the three movements. The complete recording is available for free.

  • Twas in the Moon of Wintertime – Brass Octet

    This, the first Canadian Christmas carol, was originally written in the Huron language using the melody of a 16th century French carol, Une Jeune Pucelle. This arrangement is as expressive as the story it depicts and the plaintive melody is elegantly scored and always full of promise.

    The lyrics are:

    Twas in the moon of wintertime when all the birds had fled,
    That mighty Gitchi Manitou sent angel choirs instead.
    Before their light the stars grew dim,
    And wand’ring hunters heard the hymn:
    Jesus your king is born, Jesus is born.
    In excelsis gloria!

  • Weeping, Sad and Lonely – Brass Quintet

    Weeping, Sad and Lonely (also known as When This Cruel War Is Over) is a ballad that was popular during and after the American Civil War in both northern and southern states, a fitting selection for any Memorial Day celebration. In this treatment the plaintive melody is given an accompaniment reminiscent of the “American Brass Band Journal.”

    The music was written by Henry Tucker, the lyrics by Charles Carroll Sawyer.

    The lyrics are:

    Dearest Love, do you remember, when we last did meet,
    How you told me that you loved me, kneeling at my feet?
    Oh! How proud you stood before me, in your suit of blue,
    When you vow’d to me and country, ever to be true.

    CHORUS: Weeping, sad and lonely, hopes and fears how vain!
    When this cruel war is over, praying that we meet again.

    When the summer breeze is sighing, mournfully along,
    Or when autumn leaves are falling, sadly breathes the song.
    Oft in dreams I see thee lying on the battle plain,
    Lonely, wounded, even dying, calling but in vain.
    CHORUS: Weeping, sad and lonely, hopes and fears how vain!
    When this cruel war is over, praying that we meet again.

    If amid the din of battle, nobly you should fall,
    Far away from those who love you, none to hear you call —
    Who would whisper words of comfort, who would soothe your pain?
    Ah! The many cruel fancies, ever in my brain.
    CHORUS: Weeping, sad and lonely, hopes and fears how vain!
    When this cruel war is over, praying that we meet again.

    But our Country called you, Darling, angels cheer your way;
    While our nation’s sons are fighting, we can only pray.
    Nobly strike for God and Liberty, let all nations see
    How we loved the starry banner, emblem of the free.
    CHORUS: Weeping, sad and lonely, hopes and fears how vain!
    When this cruel war is over, praying that we meet again.
