Chief and Frank – Trombone Choir
Scored for five trombones, bass trombone and two trombone soloists, this piece is featured on the album “Bill Reichenbach Quartet, Special Edition.” This 16-track, overdubbed trombone chorale is a showcase for Bill’s varied musical skills and was inspired by two men: Chief is Emory Remington, Bill’s legit trombone teacher at Eastman, and Frank is the late Frank Rosolino, the man Bill considers his “greatest jazz influence.”
More than two soloists can be used is performance. If only one soloist is available, there is an optional part that combines the solo lines.

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.
