Flugelhorn from Monteverdi - Ave Maris Stella (Brass Band)
"Hymn settings were rarely included in publications of Vespers music in the 17th century. The fact that Monteverdi provided this sublime setting of Ave Maris Stella (Hail, star of the Sea) is indicative of his desire to provide a complete musical service." This is exactly why I wanted to add this music to the Brass Band repertoire.
The original instrumental lines were not specifically assigned by Monteverdi. For an effective variation in colour, I have arranged this piece to expose several choirs of brass: The Cornets, Horns, Trombones, and also a low brass ensemble with Baritones, Euphoniums and Tubas. There is also a sence of hemiola with the 3 against 2 feel.
