Home > Brass quintet > Amazing Grace Goes Latin! (Brass Quintet)

Having recently made an arrangement of Amazing Grace Goes Latin! for wind quintet, the logical conclusion was to provide one for brass quintet, as this is also quite a popular combination.

The arrangement follows the wind one mainly, but does have a few small differences, to take on board the slightly different ranges, and timbres of the brass instruments.

Again I have dedicated to the Austrian Brass Quintet, and hope that they may well include it in their repertoire in the not-too-distant future.

I have, as usual, included a trombone part in the Treble Clef, for brass band specialists, and can, of course, provide one for Tenor Horn in place of French Horn.

I have now included an optional Piano part. Normally this kind of instrumental ensemble is self-sufficient, but the piano part may be of use, either when one or more instruments are unavailable, or perhaps in performance, should a more ’concertante’ effect be desired, and an instrument is readily available.

Please note that each Piano part is suitable ONLY for the particular instrumental version it is included with. Each arrangement varies subtly, in key, modulation, and occasional harmony or figuration and, as such, is neither interchangeable, nor self-sufficient on its own.

It is assumed that, whichever instrument(s) might be missing, the lead is always present.

N.B. In the present economic climate, a good number of smaller ensembles understandably buy just the set of parts as, in reality, these alone are all that is needed in performance. Equally, a similar number buy both the parts and the full score. To compensate for this, I intend to reduce the cost of the full score by $4, and increase the price of the lead part by $3, a differential that wasn’t available to sellers at the former SibeliusMusic.com.

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to 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:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
