ADVENT/CHRISTMAS BRASS FANFARE/INTROITS #1 - arr. DWMorgan - brass quartet/quintet/sextet - Level 2/3

Three pieces suitable for presentation as a short prelude, introit, fanfare or postlude in a worship setting.

The BRASS FANFARE/INTROIT SERIES is scored for an ensemble that allows flexibility in the instrumentation as the ensemble grows or members are available or unavailable. The arrangements, scored with independent parts, can be presented as a quartet, quintet or sextet. The full ensemble is Descant Trumpet, Trumpet, Horn (or Trumpet substitute), Trombone 1, Trombone 2 and Tuba. The quartet instrumentation is Trumpet, Horn (or Trumpet substitute), Trombone 1 and either the Trombone 2 or Tuba for the bass voice. While the Trombone 2 and Tuba parts have some differences, either can be used as the bottom voice of the quartet or both can be played with a quintet. The Descant Trumpet part adds an upper voice to the quartet and can be incorporated into the quintet presentation.

The ensemble options are:

  1. Brass Sextet. Descant Trumpet, Trumpet, Horn (or Trumpet substitute), Trombone 1, Trombone 2 and Tuba
