"EZ" Brass Easter for Brass Quartet
Four arrangements of some common Easter tunes for two trumpets, horn (or trombone), and trombone: How Great Thou Art, Blessed Assurance, Diademata, and Christ the Lord is Ris'n Today. They should be compatible with most common hymnals. Each comes with a couple of bars rest at the beginning for keyboard intros, and optional repeats are included for the verses. (YouTube)

Don't Fret It for Violin and Trombone
Don't Fret It starts with a swing section that could be played from memory while walking on stage, then transitions into a rather virtuosic dance. The dance ends with a bang, but is immediately followed by a section of creepy "dark forest" music. The piece ultimately ends with some peace and tranquility, achieved with double stop harmonies from the violin. In a couple of places the trombone must simultaneously play the role of downbeat and offbeat, and it ascends at one point to high B. You will need an F attachment. (YouTube)

Fanfare on The Strife Is O'er for Brass Quintet, Organ, and Timpani/Cymbals
The Strife is O'er, the Battle Done is a hymn traditionally sung at Easter. The composer has rearranged our popular brass quartet version of this piece for brass quintet. We believe we've made the best page turns possible in the 16 page organ score, but also provide a separate organ part you can play from, in case that works better. You will likely need professional musicians as the range gets a bit taxing for student players in the closing fanfare. (YouTube)
(Mar. 13, 2022)
Christ the Lord is Risen Today for Brass Quintet
We now have two great brass quintet arrangements of this popular Easter carol. Our original arrangement by Ken Young is in a beautiful, contemporary style. This new arrangement by Clark Cothern is more traditional, although it has a few clever surprises nonetheless! Both versions have been tested in performance. (YouTube)

Feierlicher Einzug (Solemn Entry) for Large Brass Ensemble
A beautiful new edition of Richard Strauss' magnificent music for brass, scored for twelve trumpets (Eb), three solo trumpets (Eb), four horns (Eb), three trombones, bass trombone, two tubas, and timpani. The instrumentation is so large for this ensemble that it perhaps doesn't get played much in its original form. We are currently working on a transcription for smaller brass ensemble. (YouTube)
(Feb. 28, 2022)
A Far-flung Corner of the Galaxy for Brass Quintet
Here's a new piece that will be fun to play or listen to. All instruments need straight mutes, and the trumpets also need cups. Range is generally moderate except for a few high notes here and there, especially at the end for Trumpet 1. The tuba solo will give your performer a fingering workout. From the composer: "I wanted to write something modal, which I'd never done before, and thought brass quintet would be a good ensemble for it. The piece ended up sounding a bit like Vaughan Williams, especially the tuba solo part!" (YouTube)
(Feb. 17, 2022)

O Sacred Head for Trombone Choir and Percussion
This powerful arrangement of the traditional tune was originally composed for brass band, and has now been adapted for use with trombone choir. The three percussion parts include snare drum, cymbal, bass drum, glockenspiel and timpani. The arranger indicates that a single percussionist could cover enough in this arrangement by playing timpani at the beginning and switching to snare/cymbal before the last section. (YouTube)
(Feb. 9, 2022)
The Lord's Prayer for Brass Quintet
Here's a wonderful arrangement of the popular setting of the biblical Lord's Prayer, composed by Albert Hay Malotte in 1935, and recorded by many notable singers. Mr. Cothern provides two versions: 1. The arrangement in Bb features a beautiful, soaring melody doubled by horn and trumpet. It requires the horn to ascend to written high C, which may be out of reach for some players; 2. The arrangement in F has been reworked a fourth down from the above. It features the same majestic lines, and may be more approachable for some ensembles. You receive both versions with the purchase of this arrangement. (YouTube)
(Feb. 8, 2022)
Achieved is the Glorious Work for Brass Quintet
Here is the popular music from Haydn's magnificent oratorio The Creation, arranged for high-school level brass ensembles. This edition is transposed from the original key of Bb down to F, making it more approachable for younger players. All instruments get to play the melody at some point. There is an additional trombone part to substitute for horn if desired. (YouTube)

This arrangement enables all three instruments to both lead and accompany, and the flexible score enables either two trumpets and trombone, or trumpet, horn and trombone. (YouTube)
(Feb. 1, 2022)

A composer of the Baroque period, Daniel Speer wrote music for trombones (sackbuts), cornetti and basso continuo, helping to popularize the trombone during that era in music.

Come, ye Sons of Art for Brass, Timpani, Chorus, Soloists, Keyboard
Come, ye Sons of Art was written by Henry Purcell in 1694 for the birthday of Queen Mary II of England. Originally scored for recorders, oboes, trumpets, timpani, strings, and basso continuo, it makes a fine arrangement for modern brass, which have a more powerful sound than early instruments typically provide. Includes Sinfonia, Come ye Sons of Art, Sound the Trumpet, Come ye Sons of Art (Interlude), Strike the Viol and Ritornello, The Day That Such a Blessing Gave, Bid the Virtues, These are the Sacred Charms, and See Nature Rejoicing. The Countertenor solos can be sung by Contralto or Mezzo-soprano voices, if you don't have the high male singers on hand! (YouTube)
(Jan. 4, 2022)
Storm and Prayer for Ten Trombones
Here's an arrangement for trombone choir of music from Beethoven's Symphony No. 6. The entire storm movement is included, then it jumps to the closing chorales of the symphony. The two bass trombone parts look really hard, but the sixteenth note rips are really just sound effects. You don't have to get them exactly right for the arrangement to work. Trombones 1 and 2 have to wait until the loud entrance about 2:40 in - just like in the original! Alto trombone is recommended for Trombone 1. (YouTube)
(Dec. 13, 2021)

Sonata in Bb for Euphonium and Piano
A lovely contemporary piece written in Classical style with three movements: 1. Allegro Moderato, 2. Andante e Cantabile, 3. Allegretto. The composer wanted to emulate Hadyn/Mozart so closely that it could pass for being written by one of the Classical composers! A section in the 3rd movement is meant to sound like a mid-18th century beer garden tune. The range is moderate, although it is a bit too long for younger players. Suitable for chamber music recitals, auditions, or exams.
