Danny Boy for Trombone Quartet and Drums
This light-hearted rendition of the classic Irish folk song is sure to strike a satisfying chord in everyone's heart. The melody switches from Lead Trombone to Trombone 2 the second time around, adding some jazz chording to liven up the traditional harmony. Parts are provided in bass clef, plus Bb treble for Trombones 1-3, Bb Bass, and Eb Bass (YouTube).
(Jan. 22, 2023)
Recitativo & Arietta for Horn and Piano
The work begins with a plaintive, unaccompanied melody for the horn in the style of a recitative, then continues as the piano joins in for a simple arietta. According to the composer, Recitativo & Arietta is a reflection on the all too few hours recently spent meeting a colleague in the flesh for the first time, after a good number of years of digital friendship! It means to merge the somewhat divergent musical styles we each pursue (YouTube).
(Jan. 20, 2023)
Gutenachtgeschichte (Bedtime Story) for Unaccompanied Flugelhorn
This solo for flugelhorn should have a relaxed, free-flowing feeling. Pauses may be exaggerated (or not) as the performer feels it will benefit his/her telling of the story. Great for those flugel players looking for a musical story to play for their kids (or grandkids)! (YouTube).
(Jan. 18, 2023)
Pachelbel's Canon for Two Trumpets and Organ
Here's a beautiful adaption of this popular work from the original violin parts. Pachelbel's Canon (Canon in D) is of course well known as a wedding music staple, but it's appropriate for many other occasions as well. Trumpet parts are provided in both C and Bb (YouTube).
(Jan. 16, 2023)
Four Bell Carols for Trombone Quartet
A set of carols including Carol of the Bells (Ukrainian Carol), Jingle Bells, I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day, and Ding Dong! Merrily on High, and suitable for college-level players and above.

(Dec. 12, 2022)
Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer for Trombone Quartet
Available on our partner site, here is another great arrangement of Rudolph for trombone quartet by Robert Fraser, Bass Trombonist of the Victoria Symphony. The lead trombone part is provided in both tenor and bass clef, and you'll need a bass trombone. Check out the original recording by the Pacific Trombone Quartet on their album Bedlam in Bethlehem (first trombone improvises a little lick – see if you can figure it out!). There was also a hilarious recording made last year by the trombonists of the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.
(Dec. 6, 2022)
Oh Hanukkah for Brass Quintet
This is a much easier version of the traditional holiday song than the epic Oh Hanukkah with Fugue and Variations we released two weeks ago, written by the same arranger. Playable for high-school level brass players and above, it could even be sight-read on a gig by good musicians (YouTube).
(Dec. 2, 2022)
Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer for Brass Quintet
Available on our partner site, your audience will love this arrangement of Rudolph for brass quintet by Evelin Auger, former Principal Trombone of Orchestre Symphonique de Québec. It has been performed many times by the brass players of that orchestra. Trombone requires a plunger mute and has a quick change to open, but getting rid of the mute is part of the fun! (YouTube)
(Dec. 1, 2022)
We Wish You a Merry Christmas for Brass Quintet or Sextet
Here's a fun choice for advanced-level quintets or established ensembles. The arranger provides an option for your lead trumpet player. There are parts for Piccolo Trumpet in A, or the traditional Bb Trumpet. Or if you want to really impress the audience: pull in an extra player and play all six parts, since they all work together! The middle section includes a mash-up between the melody from J.S. Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring and the Christmas carol (YouTube).
(Nov. 30, 2022)
Frosty the Snowman for Brass Quintet
Available on our partner site, this arrangement for brass quintet of the popular Christmas song brings Frosty to life!

(Nov. 28, 2022)
Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending for Trumpet Duet and Organ
The Advent hymn Lo, He Comes With Clouds Descending is universally admired. This festive arrangement features the chorale played on the organ with dignified and slightly modified harmonies. The two trumpets dance in an imitative descant-like way around the chorale, with the 1st part in particular at a more advanced level. A great processional for Advent Sunday.

Oh Hanukkah with Fugue and Variations for Brass Quintet and Percussion
Could this be the coolest Oh Hanukkah brass quintet arrangement ever? It will require some rehearsal so is probably best performed by more advanced ensembles, or established amateur groups that don't mind a challenge. Requires a medium hand drum, tambourine, and small cymbal/cymbals (YouTube).
(Nov. 18, 2022)
Four Kingly Carols for Brass Quartet
We liked last week's release of We Three Kings so much that we decided to roll it into a collection of four! The arrangements are fairly basic and could probably be sightread on a gig by good players. Included are We Three Kings of Orient Are, Come, Thou Long-Expected Jesus, The Birthday of a King, and Angels from the Realms of Glory (YouTube).
(Nov. 17, 2022)

There are alternate parts for horn in Eb, trombones 1 and 2 in Bb treble, and Eb bass, in case you have a more traditional brass band ensemble (YouTube).
(Sept. 17, 2022)
A Christmas Wish for Brass Quartet, SATB Choir, Sleigh Bells and Organ
A couple of months ago we saw a forum post asking about Christmas music for brass and choir. There weren't a lot of suggestions, so Brad decided to write something! The vocal range is fine for most church choirs, with words based on a Christmas poem by Dave Dogterom. If you have a Christmas gig for brass quintet, your horn player can take a break and play sleigh bells! (YouTube).
(Sept. 15, 2022)
God Save The Queen for Brass Quintet
We asked arranger Tom Camp if he could whip up something to honour a beloved queen, and he delivered! This might possibly be the most exciting rendition you have ever played. After an introspective intro, the melody is played through twice. You can end it there, or you have the option of continuing on to an extended "tag" ending, eventually to a fortissimo close with juicy high C for first trumpet! Tom is also working on an arrangement for brass band that will soon be available (YouTube).
(Sept. 13, 2022)
Hark! The Herald Angels Sing for Brass Ensemble
O Come, O Come Emmanuel for Brass Ensemble
We have updated two of our popular brass ensemble arrangements, originally released in 2016. Hark! The Herald Angels Sing takes a rousing march approach to the carol (YouTube), while O Come, O Come Emmanuel contrasts four "Hard" and four "Soft" brass instruments (cylindrical and conical bore) to beautiful effect (YouTube).
(Sept. 12, 2022)
Danny Boy (Londonderry Air) for Trombone and Piano
The arranger takes a very nice approach to this popular Irish Folk Song! A great piece for any recital or solo performance. Note that in our sample recording the trombonist is playing along with a computer-generated piano sound. A real pianist would play with some rubato and pedal, making it sound less chunky (YouTube).
(Sept. 12, 2022)
Surprise/Surprise for Brass Quintet
The second movement of Haydn's Symphony No. 94 in G Major is a great example of serious classical music meeting the funny bone. Humor has been added to brass ensemble concerts for over twenty years by groups like the Canadian Brass and Mnozil Brass. You can use this piece to inject some fun into your performance as well! (YouTube)
(Sept. 7, 2022)
Schubert Ave Maria for Brass Quintet
Here's a beautiful arrangement of the popular sacred Christmas music. Trumpets, horn, and trombone all get to play the melody at some point, while tuba lays down the foundation. There is an alternate trombone part to substitute for horn, but it may be too taxing for student players as it is for the most part above the staff (YouTube).
(Sept. 1, 2022)
Just a Closer Walk with Thee for Brass Quintet and Drum Set
Just a Closer Walk with Thee is a traditional gospel song and jazz standard that has been performed and recorded by many artists. Performed as either an instrumental or vocal, "A Closer Walk" is perhaps the most frequently played number in the hymn and dirge section of traditional New Orleans jazz funerals. The title and lyrics of the song allude to the Biblical passage from 2 Corinthians 5:7 which states, "We walk by faith, not by sight" and James 4:8, "Come near to God and He will come near to you." (Wikipedia) This superfun arrangement is sure to be a hit at any brass performance! (YouTube).
(Aug. 19, 2022)

(Aug. 17, 2022)
Prelude and Fugue for Brass Quintet
This approachable arrangement of organ music by August Wilhelm Bach (not related to J.S. Bach) is not too taxing in terms of range or technique. Trumpet 1 has some long phrases and will need to grab a few quick breaths. Trumpet parts are provided in Bb and C (YouTube).
(July 20, 2022)

An arrangement of the Prelude (Marche en rondeau) to Marc-Antoine Charpentier's popular Te Deum H.146, composed between 1688 and 1698.

Instrumentation is two trumpets in Bb, two trombones, organ (YouTube).
(June 22, 2022)
Seasons Suite for Brass Trio

"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)
(Mar. 21, 2022)
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)
(Mar. 21, 2022)
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)
(Mar. 8, 2022)
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)
St. Theodulph for Two Trumpets and Organ

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)
(Feb. 3, 2022)
Forty Days and Forty Nights for Flexible Brass Trio
A set of variations on the great Lent chorale melody HEINLEIN, which is sung to the text Forty Days and Forty Nights by many congregations throughout the world.

(Jan. 18, 2022)
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)
