  • Die himmel erzählen die Ehre Gottes (Schütz) – Brass Quintet

    Heinrich Schütz (1585 – 1672) was a Renaissance composer and is generally considered the most important German composer prior to Johann Sebastian Bach. His compositions show the influence of his teacher, Gabrieli.

    One of the last composers to write in modal style, the text for this piece is from Psalm 19. The title translates to: The heavens are telling the glory of God.

    Originally written for six voices, the piece is ideal for brass quintet and will sound glorious in a church or recital setting.

    Thanks to the Vista Brass Quintet for sending a recording of this piece.

    The Vista Brass Quintet features Emily Lawyer and Tim Winfield – trumpet, Anne Marie Cherry – horn, Charles Lilly – trombone and Todd Eames – bass trombone.

  • Dixie – Brass Band

    The arrangements in Bill Reichenbach's American Brass Band Series were written to showcase the brass band. These familiar tunes are all great audience pleasers and will be a welcome addition to your next concert.

    Bill and his band, playing on restored instruments from the 1870s, performed these charts at the Great American Brass Band Festival, Custer's Little Big Horn re-enactment and brass benefit concerts to name a few.

    Each arrangement has the parts numbered from the top down on both the score and the individual parts. For example, numbers 8 and 9 have parts for both trombone bass clef as well as transposing treble clef parts for tenor horns. All the optional versions of the same part have the same number, making it simple to have all the parts covered by making sure that you have someone playing all the numbers. Print all the parts or print only those you need.

    1 – Bb Piccolo Trumpet
    2 – Eb Cornet/Trumpet 1

  • Drive-thru – Brass Quintet

    Hungry? This is an impatient trip through traffic on the way to the drive-thru. There are blaring horns, near collisions, a dump truck backing up (so obnoxious and so irritating), and finally there you are, waiting in line. The 1st trumpet asks “may I take your order” and finally the tuba gets to order a cheeseburger, fries and a chocolate milkshake. The order is, of course, repeated over the speaker, accomplished by trombone with a harmon. More waiting, more impatience, more car horns, and finally you are satisfied. Aaah

    This piece will be a great hit with your audience. And there are absolutely no calories!
