Brass Quintets and Ensembles
- Beneath the Cross (brass quintet) - arr. Jason Wyse. A very nice arrangement of the popular hymn
- Danny Boy (brass quintet) - arr. Brett Miller. Simple yet soaring arrangement with deep, rich harmonic parts. Very accessible.
- The New-Found Journal, (woodwind quartet - flute, clarinet, horn, bassoon) by Kerry Turner commissioned by Markus Htzel and the Melton Tuba Quartet. This woodwind quartet version was arranged for the Quatuor de Vents du Luxembourg. Perusing rows of ancient leather-bound volumes in a baronial private library, a browser pauses, his hand hovering over a burnished tome. The word 'Journal,' embossed in gold, gleams through heavy dust and he slides it carefully from the shelf where it has sat, untouched, for decades...perhaps centuries. Gingerly he turns to the first yellowed page - and plunges into a world of swashbuckling adventure, recorded in evocative detail by a 16th-century spice trader. His seafaring escapades and exotic encounters are left to the imagination of the listener...
- The Navajo Mandala, (combined woodwind quintet, brass quintet, and percussion) by Kerry Turner - commissioned by the United States Air Forces in Europe Band. It is a sonic depiction of a mandala that was created by Navajo Indians. The symmetric, labyrinth-like circular patterns of the mandala are paralleled in this interesting piece for combined woodwind and brass quintets and percussion. Find this in the LISTENING GALLERY
- Variations on Battle Cry of Freedom (brass quintet) - arr. Brett Miller. Grade 6+ arrangement, with a difficult and high tuba part, this arrangement has fireworks in all the parts. Truly difficult, truly exciting! Sure to bring a crowd to its feet!
