Rejoice With Me – Trombone Choir
This beautiful Renaissance motet has been carefully arranged for trombone choir. It was first published in 1572, written by Tomas Luis Victoria, the most famous composer in 16th century Spain and one of the greatest, ranking with Palestrina and Orlando di Lasso.
The simple lines, homophonic textures, rhythmic variety, repeated notes for emphasis, and tonal contrasts foreshadow the major-minor concept characteristic of the Baroque era.
The arranger, Bill Reichenbach, is using this piece for the offertory at his annual Christmas concert. This motet could also be played any time of the year since it is not a familiar carol.
Composer: Bill Reichenbach
Instrumentation: 6 Tenor Trombones & 2 Bass Trombones
