  • Madrigal: Draw On, Sweet Night – Brass Quintet

    John Wilbye (1574 – 1638) was an English composer, one of the finest madrigalists of his time. Madrigal: Draw On, Sweet Night, written over 400 years ago, is his most well known and greatest work. There is a complex array of harmonic shifts, with constant changes between minor and major. It is delicate, yet powerful, and will work well in any church setting or recital. There is an artistic unity to his writing that every audience should appreciate.

  • naked tuba – Tuba Solo

    Alone on stage. Just a chair and a music stand, you and your tuba. Feeling so very exposed, you begin the first notes of naked tuba.

    The opening tempo is marked “slow, calm (mostly)” and you are totally free to express yourself. Although written in one continuous movement, the second tempo is marked “agitated (sometimes)” and again, the decisions are all yours.

    This piece was written for Doug Tornquist, with great respect and admiration. I've had the opportunity to work with Doug on many occasions and his playing always inspires me to write more.

    The tuba is an incredibly lyrical and versatile instrument. This unaccompanied piece celebrates the unlimited colors of this expressive instrument.

  • No Strings Attached – Brass Quintet

    It is so easy to add special conditions, restrictions and expectations to almost anything — even music. Using this as extramusical inspiration, No Strings Attached first attaches each of the strings, followed by a spirited and rhythmic romp interspersed with unifying chorales. At the end, each of the strings are released, one by one.

    Music is one of the most valuable things we can share without asking for or expecting anything in return.

    Composer: Anne McGinty
    Instrumentation: 2 Bb Trumpets, F Horn, Trombone & Tuba

  • Nymphes des Bois (Josquin) – Brass Quintet

    Nymphes des bois, also known as La Déploration de Johannes Ockeghem, is a lament by Josquin des Prez (ca. 1445 – 1521) on the death of his predecessor, Ockeghem. Josquin was one of the most influential Renaissance composers and was considered a great master of his time.

    The music is based on a poem (elegy) by Jean Molinet, a French poet and composer. The descending thirds in the chorus represent the names of the composers of that time: Josquin, Pierson, Brumel and Compére.

    The lyrics to the chorus are:

    Put on the clothes of mourning.
    Josquin, Pierson, Brumel, Compére.
    And weep great tears from your eyes,
    For you have lost your good father.
    May they rest in peace.

    Excerpt graciously provided by the Tower Brass Quintet.
