  • Antiphon – Brass Quintet

    Anton Bruckner (1824 – 1896) was an Austrian composer known for his monumental symphonies, masses and motets. He was a simple man with an intense devotion to the spiritual life.

    This motet was written in 1878 and scored for solo tenor, choir and organ. The complete title is Antiphon – Tota pulchra es Maria. It’s not known when he re-scored it for SATB. Both versions feature a dialog between a soloist and the full quintet. His use of sudden contrasts of timbre and dynamics as well as some unexpected harmonic choices make this piece a welcome addition to the repertoire.

    Composer: Anne McGinty
    Instrumentation: 2 Bb Trumpets, F Horn, Trombone & Tuba
    Duration/# of Pages: ca. 4:50 / 11 pages, 8.5″ x 11″

  • Ave Verum Corpus (Byrd) – Brass Quartet

    Ave verum corpus (Hail, true body) is based on a 14th century poem. This musical setting by William Byrd (1543 – 1623) is considered one of his finest works. A student of Thomas Tallis, William Byrd was the leading English composer of his time, a great master of the Renaissance along with Giovanni Palestrina and Orlando de Lassus, and left a huge legacy of printed music.

    The false relation, the E natural in the trumpet and the E flat in the tuba in measure 2 was Byrd's way of emphasizing the word verum.

    Excerpt graciously provided by members of the Tower Brass Quintet.
