A quintet arrangement of one of Sousa's most famous marches. The first trumpet part works with or without it being played on piccolo.
Further to the review at the bottom of this page, the couple of wrong notes that were annoyingly sprinkled about the score have now been corrected (a simple email would have resolved that rather than a review).
As for the scoring, this is obviously a personal preference and if the reviewer has an opinion different to mine then that is his right. I could have simply taken the 1st & 2nd cornet, 1st horn, 2nd trombone and tuba parts from the original wind band set and the march would work adequately as it stood. If one is to listen to any of the great brass quintets around the world (Canadian Brass, Atlantic Brass, Fine Arts Brass, PJBE et al) then you will hear much cleverer arrangements than all 5 players playing all of the time. If one is to do this then there will be massive stamina issues, the audience will get bored with listening to the same sound all of the time and the tuba, trombone & horn players will leave the quintet because they can play boring "tuba" "trombone" & "horn" parts in their wind bands!
Whilst I will be the first to stand up and say that this arrangement is not in the same class as Arthur Franckenpohl or Bill Holcolme it is intended to be a little diversion from the norm. I am sorry to have offended Mr Terrett so!
Score Exchange has two methods of display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:
You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.
Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. Scorch generally works well if you're using a windows computer, but is currently not compatible with modern Mac computers or mobile devices.
If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
