  • Personent Hodie – Brass Quartet

    Personent Hodie is a Christmas carol originally published in a 1582 Finnish song book, a volume of 73 Medieval songs with Latin texts. A melody found in a 1360 manuscript is highly similar, and it is from this manuscript that the song is usually dated.

    It became more prominent in England after being arranged for unison voices and orchestra in 1916 by Gustav Holst. It was written in honor of St. Nicholas, and will add an international flavor to your Christmas concerts.

    Composer: Bill Reichenbach
    Instrumentation: 3 Bb Trumpets, 1 Trombone or Euphonium
    Duration/# of Pages: ca. 2:25 / 18 pages, 8.5″ x 11″
    Key: N/A

    Score & Parts $15.00

  • Pomp and Circumstance March – Brass Quintet

    Sir Edward Elgar's Trio (Procession) from Pomp and Circumstance is an unabashed piece of “gig music.” This arrangement attempts to go easy on the trumpets – a useful feature when a large graduation class calls for multiple repeats of the movement.

    Instrumentation: 2 Bb Trumpets, F Horn, Trombone & Tuba

  • Praetorius: Two Christmas Pieces – Brass Quintet

    Es Ist Ein Ros’ Entsprungen and Gespräch der Hirten zu Bethlehem (Colloquy of the Shepherds) are two pieces by Michael Praetorius, one well known and the other, less so. The original test of Gespräch, a retelling of Luke 2:15, juxtaposes the earthly and the divine using both German and Latin. This instrumental version for quartet or quintet (doubling the bass at the octave) evokes the sound of a Gabrieli Canzona.

    The mp3 excerpt is performed by the Sine Nomine Brass Quintet. (Used with permission.)
